All those rumors of the next Xbox being revealed at E3 2012?  Microsoft PR says they’re just that.

According to tweets from Bloomberg’s Dina Bass (spotted by MCV) David Dennis, the head of corporate PR for Microsoft has stated that, “There will be no new Xbox hardware to be shown/discussed at E3 or anytime soon.  For us, 2012 is all about Xbox 360.”

According to Bass, these statements were made to Bloomberg via email.

A story has since appeared on Bloomberg itself, which says they have been told by sources that the console may be revealed at E3 2013, but no earlier.
