Rumor: Microsoft To Announce Next Xbox On April 26

An associate editor of the website CVG says that his sources have told him that Microsoft is planning an event on April 26 to unveil the next Xbox to the world.

CVG associate editor Rob Crossley recently tweeted: "The next Xbox event is scheduled for April 26th, I've been told by someone I trust. Microsoft may change date, obvs, but diarise tentatively."

While this is far from official confirmation, it makes sense that Microsoft would not wait until E3 to talk about its next system, given that Sony has already shows some of its cards regarding the PlayStation 4. More on this story to come.
