Fans are almost certain that the handheld console is a reality; Microsoft hasn’t provided any information or even mentioned it. However, everyone involved in the brand has made it clear that they could use any opportunity to boost sales.

The gaming community is not very interested in acquiring a console from the creators of Gears of War, but products like Steam Deck have proven to be very effective for players in certain markets. The Nintendo strategy is to only rely on exclusive games that run well on the Switch, but a third possibility for players to choose from could make the competition much more fair for Xbox.

With the use of Game Pass, the portable console could have hundreds of games to choose from. Fans are hoping to see an option for those who love portable consoles and want to play everywhere. Microsoft is gearing up for a showcase in June, where they plan to share a wealth of news and updates about their upcoming titles.

Fans are expecting a possible Gears of War 6, the release date of Fable, and numerous other new IPs. After the event, sources hinted at the potential introduction of the next Call of Duty game, including gameplay details and a release date. This is the year that Microsoft could make a big difference and bring in new players.
