Last October, Microsoft announced its new version of Windows 10, baptized Creators Update (or RedStone 2). At the time, the publisher had mentioned an exit “early 2017”, without giving further details. We know a little more now through the site MSPoweruser : it would be for April.
According to the site in question, Microsoft would have assigned the number 1704 the next time Windows 10 is updated. first two digits represent the year, while the last two correspond to month Release. Even if, in the past, Microsoft has not always respected this nomenclature (the Anniversary Update is number 1607, but was released on August 2, 2016), everything was always played out within a few days. If the Creators Update does not come out in April, it would probably be at the very end of March that the OS will be available for download on Microsoft servers. But whatever the case, you will have to wait another 3 months before enjoying the new edition of Windows 10.

At the same time, still according to MSPoweruser, Microsoft developers are in the process of finalize new OS functions. Starting in late January, the Windows 10 development team will focus on fixing bugs and releasing patches, and won’t add more features to the operating system.
Finally, by the end of the year, Microsoft should also deliver another update: RedStone 3. But for now, the development of this new edition is only in its infancy, its release date can be the source of many changes.
