Rumor: Details About Scorpio And FORZA MOTORSPORT 7 To Be Released This Week

Someone on NeoGaf is spouting off that we could be learning some concrete details about Project Scorpion and Forza Motorsport 7. Here's what they said:

To clarify for all of you beautiful people. 

A major outlet visited Microsoft this week to take a look at Scorpio and its specs, using Forza Motorsport 7 as a showcase. 

I've had the information about FM7 being a 4K "showcase" for a while, but it wasn't until a friend of a friend of a friend of a writer at this particular outlet (no prizes for guessing who) leaked the big reveal to me that I considered it confirmed. It made previous information I had make more sense, combined with info I got from what's happening with the Forza guys, etc. Expect a deluge of coverage next week.

The fact MS is showing off Forza and Scorpio now potentially bodes well for E3, hopefully they're going to give us a better idea of what their games line-up will look like in 2018 and beyond, but they're prob going to be cautious with how far out they go, due to the whole Scalebound thing. I think they're aware of the narrative surrounding how their line-up looks like compared to Sony's. 

We generally have good info on Microsoft's internal happenings from years and years covering Windows, Surface, Lumia (RIP) and whatnot, as tech press rather than games press. 


I wouldn't be so sure massive coverage is coming next week, as I would think the advanced look would be under embargo until E3. I do certainly believe we're going to be hearing more about Scorpio and probably get a vague release window at E3, but I don't see why Microsoft would like to get all the hardware details out with just a couple months to go until E3. What's your take on this rumor?
