Xbox One won't be the last video game console you'll see from Microsoft, head of Xbox Phil Spencer has said.

Speaking to The Verge about the future of Xbox, Spencer said: "I fully expect that you'll see another console from us [...] Our best customers are Xbox console customers, and I want to keep those people engaged both on the Xbox One and anything we might do in the future. I'm 100 percent committed to that."

Microsoft has yet to announce plans for any future Xbox console, nor has it confirmed plans to release a smaller, slimmer model of the existing Xbox One.

Xbox One launched at the same time as PS4 in November 2013, eight years after the launch of the Xbox 360.

EA exec Patrick Soderlund, however, has previously said that he expects the current console generation to be shorter than that of Xbox 360 and PS3, pointing towards a 5-6 year life-cycle.

Xbox Canada's former director of marketing Craig Flannagan, meanwhile, has previously said that he expects Xbox One to last "conservatively 10 years", suggesting that the console could still be around in 2023.
