Friday, September 16, 2011 2:03 AMWhat are the chances we'll see a version or variant of DirectX that uses the C++/CX extensions for its API in the future? Perhaps something along the lines of Managed DirectX, SlimDX, or the XNA Framework?

I wouldn't count on any thing from MSFT this late in the game.
The C++ API's are available to metro apps and there should be nothing stopping you or anyone else from creating a WinRT wrapper over those C++ APIs.

This link has more information. You cannot use XNA to develop Metro style apps. You must develop the DirectX game with C++:
