Despite Microsoft's aggressiveness in the field of cloud and streaming, the firm does not seem ready to stop hardware production. Phil Spencer himself indicates that there will be other Microsoft consoles after the Xbox Series X.
This is ultimately a completely legitimate question, especially if we consider the progressive aggressiveness of Microsoft concerning any technology related directly or indirectly to the Cloud: is the future of physical consoles assured?

Thus, according to him, “our investment in Cloud Gaming is not going to cause the death of consoles. We are planning other consoles in the future . “ In other words, the Xbox Series X will not be Microsoft's last console, in a world that tends to give more and more importance to the cloud and streaming .
