Microsoft has been very open about the Windows 10 Creators Update. The company announced the feature update last year and has revealed virtually all of its features through previews. However, Microsoft has been coy on exactly when the Creators Update will launch. According to MSPowerUser (MSPU), the update will start rolling out on April 11.
At launch and over the proceeding months, Microsoft has been vague about specific dates. Indeed, all the company has done is promise a spring 2017 launch for the Windows 10 Creators Update.
MSPU says it has three separate sources who say Microsoft will start the roll out on April 11. Of course, despite Microsoft’s silence on specific dates, we have known for some time that the Creators Update would drop in April.
Dell confirmed at CES in January that the update would drop next months. However, MSPU has now added a more concrete date.
An April launch has seemed likely since Microsoft announced its Build 2017 conference will kick off May 10. By time Build gets underway, the company would surely want the Creators Update roll out to be in progress.
Build 2017 will be used to talk about future builds, most like Redstone 3.
End of Creators Update Previews
Microsoft is currently winding down towards the launch of the Windows 10 Creators Update. The company has been previewing the build for months through the Windows Insider Program. Now those preview builds are coming to an end.
This is evidenced by a reduction in new features shipping with builds. Microsoft will sign-off on the Creators Update sometime during this month. The final release will come shortly after.
The company is already well into development of Redstone 3. The next feature update is expected to arrive later in the year and could be fully announced at Build. One of the key new additions of Redstone 3 will be Project Neon, which is a UI overhaul for Windows 10.
