Xbox Scarlett is coming next year

Microsoft has announced the replacement to its Xbox One will be released for Christmas 2020 at E3.

Although the console has yet to be given a full name, it is currently being referred to as Project Scarlett, with Halo: Infinite among the planned launch titles.

The console will be “four times” more powerful than the Xbox One X, according to Microsoft, with a custom-engineered AMD processor and capability for 8K and 120 frames per second.

Sharing the trailer on YouTube, Xbox wrote: “Introducing Project Scarlett. Unmatched power and speed ushers in a new level of game play performance and the future of gaming. With four generations of content that looks and feels unlike anything before.”

The news comes after Xbox boss Phil Spencer said in June last year that Microsoft is “deep into architecting the next Xbox consoles where we will once again deliver on our commitment to set the benchmark for console gaming.”
