Lots of rumors around about the next Xbox, which is reportedly coming in two models as part of a family called “Scarlett.”
Indeed, you might remember the console is reported to be releasing in two fashions, one as a traditional super-power console and the other as a streaming box.
Windows Central has shared a new rumor about specs and codenames of these platforms, revealing that the streaming box, a sort of “S 2”, is currently dubbed “Lockhart.”
“According to our sources, there are two consoles currently being prepped, aiming for a 2020 holiday debut — a cheaper “S”-style console, to succeed the Xbox One S, and a more beastly “X”-style console, to succeed the Xbox One X,” says the site.
“The codename for the “S 2” seems to be “Lockhart,” and the codename for the “X 2” seems to be “Anaconda,” which may also be serving as a dev kit.“
The report further adds:
“The next-gen Lockhart console will be the affordable SKU, providing the next-gen Xbox experience in a package potentially around as powerful as the current Xbox One X hardware wise, with refinements under the hood.
The Anaconda console will be more powerful and more expensive, providing a cutting-edge console gaming experience. We’ve also heard Microsoft is exploring technology to dramatically reduce loading times, potentially including SSD storage in the package.”
As usual, this is just a rumor so you should really not take this news as a confirmation of anything about the next Xbox.
Anyway, it’s interesting to note things are coming up together and in a more coherent form, so we could be really close to the truth.
