The first public preview of Visual Studio 2022 will be released this summer.
Visual Studio 2022 is 64-bit
Visual Studio 2022 will be a 64-bit application, no longer limited to ~4Gb of memory in the main devenv.exe process. With a 64-bit Visual Studio on Windows, you can open, edit, run, and debug even the biggest and most complex solutions without running out of memory.
While Visual Studio is going 64-bit, this doesn’t change the types or bitness of the applications you build with Visual Studio. Visual Studio will continue to be a great tool for building 32-bit apps.
Designing for everyone
Microsoft want to reduce complexity and decrease the cognitive load so that you can focus and stay in the zone and making Visual Studio more accessible delivers better usability for everyone.
Environments and languages
Visual Studio 2022 will have full support for .NET 6 and its unified framework for web, client, and mobile apps for both Windows and Mac developers and it will also include robust support for the C++ workload with new productivity features, C++20 tooling, and IntelliSense.
