Microsoft is expected to roll out a new build for Windows 10 later this week after the Windows Insider team opted to hold back a new release on Monday and Tuesday. Dona Sarkar, Microsoft software engineer and leader of the Windows Insider Program, called them off in a Twitter post.

Sarkar said the team decided to cancel rollout for a new build early this week be released on Friday. This is true for both the PC and Windows Mobile ecosystems.

Dona Sarkar let it slip that the upcoming Windows 10 build is coming this Friday:

No Mobile builds M/T either, we are looking for a good build candidate for the bug bash which starts on Friday.

In other words, what better way to start the bug bash than rolling out a new Windows 10 build?

For Windows 10 Mobile in particular, the Windows Insider team is working on selecting a good build candidate for the bug bash on Friday. Bug bash is Microsoft’s way of collecting feedback on specific user experience involving queries and tasks for users to undertake for relevant feedback. With the bug bash slated to start on Friday, Microsoft is more likely to roll out a new build on Thursday to allow time for users to test it.

The announcement comes a few days after the release of the Windows 10 build 15019 to the Fast Ring. It includes a slew of nifty gaming features such as the Game Mode which optimizes your Windows 10 PC for improved gaming experience.

For now, we’ll have to wait until Friday for news of a fresh Windows 10 build coming from Microsoft.
