We've seen the next generation of consoles and now it's time for Microsoft to introduce the next generation of Windows operating system.

No, it won't be the legendary PC 2, but it will be a brand new OS from Microsoft, or at least everything is pointing to that conclusion. 

Last week, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella talked about a major update being in the works for Windows, calling it the "next generation of Windows" which implies that it won't be related only (or at all) to Windows 10.

Of course, this is big news for gaming as well, because a huge number of gamers is playing games on PCs, and thus on Windows operating systems, and the new Windows will be extremely important for the future of PC gaming.

If you are interested to find out what Microsoft has in store for the next generation of Windows operating systems, here's how you can watch the next generation of Windows reveal event.

The next-generation of Windows reveal event is scheduled for 24th June 2021.

The event will start at 5 pm CET / 11 am ET / 8 am PT. 

The event will be broadcasted live on Microsoft's website, and although not disclosed, it will probably be available on Twitch and YouTube as well.

Will Microsoft announce Windows 11?

While we are not exactly sure about the name (Windows 11 or something else), at this point it is almost certain that the live stream will showcase some major next steps for Windows, either a brand new version or some drastic changes for Windows 10.

Windows 10 has been released in July 2015 and is almost six years old, the same age as Windows 7 at the time of Win 10's release.

"Soon we will share one of the most significant updates to Windows of the past decade to unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators," Nadella said in his keynote a week ago.

Microsoft CEO promises "the most innovative, new, open platform to build and distribute and monetize applications," and says that the new system will "create more opportunity for every Windows developer."

There are not many other details asides from this so we will have to wait for 24th June and watch the live stream in order to learn more about the next generation of Windows and what will that mean for gamers.
