Microsoft is apparently moving to their more traditional update cycle with a new major version releasing every 3 years. This suggests that Windows 12 may be on-track for a 2024 release date according to Windows Central’s sources who are close to Microsoft.
Microsoft’s return to their older 3-year cycle means that more features will be rolled out to users aggressively during the lifespan of the OS which right now is Windows 11.
Starting with Windows 11 22H2, Microsoft will be introducing Moments; an engineering effort that will see the company rolling out new features and experience possibly every quarter and will start in 2023.
Windows 10 saw the company heavily revolve around the Fall release cycle so all features and experience developed internally will see public launch by fall annually. The new release schedule now makes it faster with Moments’ tighter update track. Also, its worth stressing that Moments is a development title and is not the marketing term for this new initiative. Its also worth noting that this is actually Microsoft’s previous scheduling track versus what we’ve all must’ve been used to in the past 10 years.
That said, this means that the next big cycle will begin in 2024 with a possible release of Windows 12 should Microsoft go with that name.
