According to latest rumors, Microsoft is planning to release two more major Windows 10 updates in 2017 code-named Redstone 2 and RedStone 3. We have been hearing these rumors for quite some time now, Microsoft’s Nathan Mercer has just confirmed the news in his recent blog post.
Two new updates Redstone 2 and Redstone 3 will be targeted towards mobile and PC respectively. Moreover, you should also note that recent Windows 10 anniversary update is the last major update released by Microsoft this year. Any more updates will be minor cumulative updates. This is perfectly understandable considering Microsoft reserved considerable resources for the release of this year’s anniversary update.
Nathan Mercer in this blog post stated:
“Today’s release of Windows 10, version 1607 is initially considered the Current Branch (CB) and will become Current Branch for Business (CBB) in about four months from today. For a list of Windows 10 version by servicing option, see Windows 10 release information. For more information about these servicing options, see Windows 10 servicing options for updates and upgrades. Windows 10, version 1607 is out third Windows 10 feature update released. Based on feedback from organizations moving to Windows 10, this will be our last feature update for 2016, with two additional feature updates expected in 2017.”
According to reliable tech sources, Redstone 2 is slated for early 2017 release, while Redstone 3 is scheduled to be released in the back-end of the next year, maybe during August or September 2017.
