Microsoft News Roundup: Surface, Xbox leaks, and much more

Wow, what a week it’s been for news. We expected the last few days to be full of Microsoft news, but what came out shocked the tech world. The biggest Xbox leak in history gave us a glimpse of an Xbox Series X refresh and a new Xbox console in 2028. We also saw Panos Panay announce his departure from Microsoft just two days before the Surface and AI event that Panay was scheduled to present. And that event certainly made news, though not in the way Microsoft likely wanted. The presentation wasn’t even live streamed and has been called the worst Surface event ever by some people (including myself).

Toss in Intel announcing its Meteor Lake CPUs, and more and you have one of the busiest weeks we’ve seen in ages.

Panos Panay was not present at this week’s Surface and AI event, but he managed to steal the show. Panay, who has headed Microsoft’s Surface and Windows efforts for years, announced that he would leave the tech giant. The news came abruptly and just two days before the Surface and AI event. Panay had previously been scheduled to speak at the event, as he had done at every previous Surface event while in his role.
