Windows 10 Creators Update coming in early 2017

Windows 10 Creators Update is very close to be finalized. According to a new report from The Verge, Microsoft is now in the last stretch of development and planning to have a final version by the end of March, with a Windows 10 Creators Update release date in early April.

Microsoft is expected to roll out a “release candidate” to testers as soon as next week. This is according to Windows Central which has also revealed that the Windows 10 Creators Update will release to the public on April 11, 2017.

If everything goes to plan, once the company selects a final version, participants of the Windows Insider Program will get the final version by the end of March.

Soon after the official launch, Microsoft is also expected to release patches to address any bugs and issues that may appear during the official rollout.

The Creators Update (version 1703) is the third major release of Windows 10 that comes out eight months after the Anniversary Update and about six months before the Redstone 3 update, which is expected to release in summer 2017.

In this new version, users will get a lot of improvements and a number of new features, including new Game Mode, pick up where you left off in Cortana, new tab management system on Microsoft Edge, mixed reality support and new 3D Paint app, and a slew of new visual and under-the-hood tweaks.

Update, March 30, 2017: Microsoft has confirmed that the Windows 10 Creators Update will be generally available on April 11, 2017.
