However, according to Gamespot, it can be assumed that more games in the series are now undergoing development, considering that "Halo" is one of Microsoft's most successful and well-known video game franchises.

The year 2017 is looking to be a great year for Microsoft and its Xbox brand.

With new Microsoft Xbox 360 games now being released for Xbox One consoles via the backwards compatibility feature, it is natural for gamers to check if their favourite games are currently on the list of Xbox One backwards compatible titles.

Taking to Twitter, Xbox head Phil Spencer has said he's unsure if Project Scorpio, Microsoft's PS4 Pro competitor, will be showcased at this year's E3.

"Haha, although I probably "know" [what Project Scorpio's specs are] in that I might have seen it in a slide or something, it's literally not something I have time to think about now and I actually couldn't remember whatever specs I've been exposed to even if I was tortured", he said.

"Like, I want Scorpio to be at a console price-point, I'm not trying to go and compete with a high-end rig". Does it support that? "How many of these could it render?' What I do remember is that it's beefier than I expected", he added. Microsoft seriously needs to reconsider its approach towards its games and hardware.

According to Mobile and Apps, it is highly expected that the unveiling of Microsoft's Project Scorpio will be in E3 2017 and the expectations are based on Microsoft gaming network's director of Programming Major Nelson Tweets.

"Really what it is, is you want a platform that is balanced between memory bandwidth, GPU power, you know, your ability to move memory and [an] amount of memory around in many ways is more inhibiting to the performance of your game than absolute teraflops on any one of the individual pieces, and when we designed Scorpio we really thought about this balanced rig that could come together at a price-point".
