Windows 12 reportedly has a release window — and I couldn’t be happier

Windows 12 may be released in 2024, according to a new report which claims Microsoft is changing up its engineering strategies and moving to a 3-year release cycle for Windows.

That’s a big deal because Windows 11 launched in October 2021, and some fans were expecting to see a sequel drop as soon as 2023. But according to sources trusted by Windows Central (opens in new tab), Microsoft is adopting a new development cadence for Windows that revolves around “Moments” (reportedly a term used internally) of big updates a few times a year, with major numbered releases dropping every three years.

That means we shouldn’t expect to see Windows 12 (or whatever Microsoft ends up calling it⁠— “Next Valley” has reportedly been used internally, though it may not be the final codename) until 2024.

However, Windows Central also claims that Microsoft’s new development cadence is designed to deliver more new features to Windows 11 with increasing frequency over the next year.
