Five years have passed since Microsoft launched Xbox One and the company is now teasing information about the next-generation console. Even though Microsoft created a bunch of Xbox One variants during this past five years such as Xbox One S and Xbox One X, fans are already asking for something new.
Although, no one can blame Xbox fans for wanting Microsoft to launch its next-generation console after spending so much time with the original Xbox One. With that being said, today we are going to check out all the latest leaks and rumors regarding Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox system and give fans a glimpse of what they can expect.
Next-Generation Xbox is Being Developed Right Now
Phil Spencer is the head of Xbox at Microsoft and he is always the first one to unveil information about upcoming Xbox devices. Phil Spencer was present during Microsoft’s E3 2018 presentations and that’s where he announced that the next-generation of Xbox consoles are being developed.
The interesting thing about this is that Phil Spencer used the term “consoles” which is plural. Therefore, we think that Microsoft might be planning to launch a family of new Xbox devices which can connect to each other.
An official Microsoft document recently leaked and Thurrott’s Brad Sams was able to see it before getting deleted. Brad Sams reported that Microsoft is dubbing its next-generation console as “Scarlett,” just like Xbox One X was dubbed “Project Scorpio”.
Expected Release Date
While the codename of the upcoming device doesn’t matter that much, Brad Sams was able to find out when Microsoft is planning to launch it! The leaked document included Microsoft’s general timeline which showed that Scarlett is scheduled to come out in 2020. Therefore, we won’t have to wait that much longer until the next-generation Xbox is unveiled.
