Microsoft Teases “BIG” E3 Announcements for Xbox One System Software; New Patch Launched in Preview

on May 22, 2015 1:53 PM

Microsoft announced the features of the June update of the Xbox One system software for preview members yesterday, but the first patch is somewhat smaller, as indicated by the full patch notes released in the private preview forums.

As mentioned in the preview forums, if you didn’t receive it yet, you shouldn’t worry, because it will be delivered in two waves, and you might be in the second.

Below you can see the patch notes of today’s update:

OS version released: xb_rel_1506.150518-2200

KNOWN ISSUES

  • Please report any issues you discover via the Report a problem feature or in the forums!

The overview of this month’s update might have seen a little light to some, but Program Manager Emily Hanson mentioned something interesting in the private preview forums, teasing something “big” coming at E3.

If this month feels a little light, don’t worry – we are working on some planned *BIG* E3 announcements. In the meantime, we will be continuing to preview the items previously released to continue to get feedback and work towards making them available to everyone, so keep that feedback coming!

If you’re wondering what the “*BIG*” announcements (with asterisks and in all-caps, nonetheless) might be, your guess is as good as mine. E3 is only a few weeks away, so we don’t have too long to wait.
