Next-generation Xbox arriving in 2020 – report
MANILA, Philippines - While Microsoft at E3 only hinted that the next-generation Xbox is in development, insider information points to the company releasing it in the next two years.
A June 12 report from Thurott.com claimed Microsoft is working on a “family of devices,” instead of just a single one.
No details have been revealed regarding the devices, except that the project is codenamed Scarlett.The devices are reportedly set to come out in 2020.
Given Microsoft’s efforts into backwards compatibility, players can expect to play current-generation games with the next-generation consoles.
It’s not entirely clear how far Microsoft is in the development process so it’s best to take all this information with a grain of salt, as plans could still change.
Meanwhile, the report claims Microsoft, who just launched the Xbox One X last year, is launching new consoles early to “shake up the industry” and get an edge over the competition.
The company made it clear that they are once again ready to go head-to-head with their competitors in the gaming industry, revealing a number of first-party exclusive titles for the Xbox One including Halo Infinite and Gears 5 at E3 last June 11. – Rappler.com
