Even though we’ve had quite a number of rumors concerning the next generation Xbox (Xbox 720) recently, it looks like the console won’t be unveiled anytime soon. According to reports online, Microsoft France has announced that the upcoming console won’t be launched in 2012. According to Cedrick Delmas, marketing director of Microsoft France, “We’re in an industry that talks a lot, that likes telling stories. I am not convinced that things will happen this year. The Xbox 360′s cycle is not over at all. The proof is that we haven’t price cut this year.” (Translated by Eurogamer).
Seeing how this is a statement from an official representative, we don’t have to take it with a pinch of salt. But there’s always a chance that Microsoft could surprise us with an unexpected announcement – what do you think? Should the successor to the Xbox 360 be announced this year, or does it still have a couple of years left?
