According to what is reported in the pages of IGN it seems that Micosoft both working on a VR headset dedicated to Xbox Series X and Series S. The indiscretion arises following the discovery of the presence of a hidden message inside thelatest update dedicated to the operating system of Xbox Series X and Series S, which refers to a virtual reality headset dedicated to the new generation consoles of the Colossus of Redmond.
An image, shown in the article cited in the source, taken by the IGN colleague, shows a warning that appeared on the screen following the first installation of the Xbox Wireless Headset. Well, a clear reference has appeared to what appears to be a Microsoft project, in a future key, for the support of Virtual Reality on Series X / S. After inserting the USB connector of the headset to their console, the message from the operating system informed the user that "The VR headset needs to be updated". It seems we can rule out the possibility of a message written in error, since the reference to a headset dedicated to virtual reality is then repeated in the next message, as well as in the button to start the update of the machine: “An update for the VR viewer is available” and “Update VR viewer“.
While waiting for Microsoft to express itself on the subject, we remind you that among the pages of the catalog of the Xbox Games Pass subscription service there is not only Outriders coming, but also a particularly interesting indie! We have also known for a few days what games Bethesda will enjoy the FPS boost on the new Microsft consoles. Finally, new rumors have been circulating for a few hours according to which Godfall may soon arrive also on Xbox Series X / S. We reviewed Counterplay Games' looter slasher last November (click here in case you missed it). Godfall was launched in Europe on November 19, 2020 exclusively for PlayStation 5 and Windows PC.

Update: Xbox PR has denied the rumors, specifying that VR is not currently a company priority.
Xbox PR says: “The copy in this error message is inaccurate due to a localization bug. VR for console is not a focus for us at this time. " https://t.co/pygKmznS9C
