According to a report from Develop, Microsoft’s rumoured Xbox 720 console will be revealed at E3 2013. They cite sources ranging from chip suppliers and manufacturers to middleware firms.

Microsoft’s focus in the interim will be Kinect and Windows Phone 7 integration with the existing console, it is now thought, with E3’s summer placement lining up a Christmas 2013 release at the very earliest.

The site also claims to have been made privvy to the launch titles for the console, with Lionhead Studios working on a next-gen Fable game. EA are also said to be working on a bevvy of titles, and may even have a prototype Xbox 720, or whatever the coneols ends up being called, in their possession.

The news will come as a relief to Nintendo – their new Wii U console is set to launch some time in 2012, giving the beleagured games giant a year to get a stable fanbase built for the console before other next-gen efforts arrive.
