With Xbox Scarlett releasing in fall 2020, one of the big questions regarding the technology is whether or not it will provide support for virtual reality. Also known as VR, this is a peripheral inclusion that has been pushed in the PC space and on Playstation 4 with the PS5 also supporting the device once again.

Microsoft’s Xbox One has continued to ignore this addition to its platform, and it’s also noted from the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer isn’t too interesting in featuring virtual reality on the next generation console. That doesn’t mean it won’t come to the platform later on, but according to his latest noted tweet it’s just not a priority at the current moment. You can see that detail highlighted below, and the source link at the bottom.

The key quote from the tweet. ”I love how our industry has pioneered: AI, physics, 3D, RT, VR/AR etc. For us, it's about focus on our innovations right now. I've played some great VR games, I got to play HL:Alyx in the summer, amazing. It's just not our focus with Scarlett”.
