Microsoft hints DirectX 12 is coming to the Xbox One

A few days ago, Microsoft posted up a teaser site that announced the company will be unveiling the next version of DirectX at Game Developer Conference on March 20.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Today, the company added the Xbox One logo to the site and tweeted a second tease, saying that the new version of DirectX will also work on its flagship console.

The Xbox One shares a kernel with Windows, which means it’s likely much easier for the company to port such innovations across to the console quickly. It’s not yet clear what changes DirectX 12 will bring, but if Microsoft is making a fuss like this it probably has something big to show off.
