For a while now, Microsoft has consistently teased us with their next-gen Xbox console which is also known internally as Project Scarlett.
However, in a recent announcement, Microsoft officially revealed that its next-gen console will be named the Xbox Series X.
According to Microsoft, the console will launch in late 2020 and will ship with a redesigned version of the Xbox wireless controller. The company is also boasting that the console will be four times more powerful than the Xbox One X, and also claims that the console has been designed to support both horizontal and vertical orientations.
“Xbox Series X will be our fastest, most powerful console ever and set a new bar for performance, speed and compatibility, allowing you to bring your gaming legacy, thousands of games from three generations and more forward with you.”
In addition to the new console, the new controller will also come with features like a new Share button and also a D-pad derived from the Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller. Microsoft also notes that the controller will be compatible with the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.
For pricing and availability, the company remains tight-lipped on it but we assume Microsoft will share more details in 2020.
