Microsoft teases DirectX 12 unveil for GDC

A new Twitter account and website reveal that the tech giant will unveil the latest version of its DirectX APIs on March 20, alongside the 2014 Game Developers Conference.
Newsbrief: Though details are as yet scant, Microsoft has put up a site to tease the reveal of DirectX 12, its latest collection of APIs for game developers. No word has come so far on what operating systems or devices DX12 will support. The simple message "Rumors of our demise have been greatly exaggerated... #DirectX12 is coming to #GDC," was tweeted on the new DirectX 12 Twitter account -- as of this writing, its only tweet. It's an acknowledgment of rumors that DirectX would not be continued after version 11, which launched in 2008. The DX12 tweet also contained a link to a teaser site for the DirectX 12 unveiling, which is set for March 20, 2014 at 10 AM Pacific time, alongside the upcoming Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. You can expect more coverage on DirectX 12 from Gamasutra at that time.
