Microsoft will release the next version of its Xbox gaming computer in 2020. This is what Brad Sams says of the Thurrott website dedicated to Microsoft, based on a timeline for new Microsoft products.
Microsoft already announced this week at game fair E3 to work on a new Xbox, but details about that are missing.
According to Thurrott, it is a project with the code name Scarlett. The console would be part of a wider family of devices.
Microsoft describes Scarlett as a family of devices, which could mean that the new Xbox experience is going to be a cross-platform experience that consists of different hardware forms. It would be a logical next step for the Xbox family that is slowly expanding with Xbox Game Pass and Windows compatibility.
Although 2020 may sound a bit early in contrast with the release of the Xbox One X last year, this would be a deliberate strategy from Microsoft. They want to shake the industry with their future vision of gaming. Whether that is a new, more powerful Xbox One or a completely new console with backward compatibility will have to be proven.
It is not clear whether this is a new range of devices or a more powerful Xbox One. A year ago, Microsoft announced the latest version of its game console: the Xbox One X.
