The next generation of Xbox consoles will be announced at E3 2019, according to a report from French website JeuxVideo.
According to the website, the consoles are code-named “Lockhart” and “Anaconda.” Lockhart is a entry level device without a disc drive and focused on digital, while Anaconda is a high-end device priced similarly to Xbox One X at launch.
As for specifications, JeuxVideo said that data sheets leaked in late January are close to accurate, but would only confirm the presence of SSDs on each machine. Here are the data sheets from January:
|Xbox “Lockhart”||Xbox “Anaconda”|
|CPU||Custom 8 Cores – 16 zen threads 2||Custom 8 Cores – 16 zen threads 2|
|GPU||Custom NAVI 4+ Teraflops||Custom NAVI 12+ Teraflops GPU|
|RAM||12GB of GDDR6 memory||16GB of GDDR6 memory|
|Storage||SSD 1TB NVMe 1 + GB / s||SSD 1TB NVMe 1 + GB / s|
The Verge senior editor Tom Warren also chimed in to reiterate that not all of the above specifications are accurate.
JeuxVideo states that release is scheduled for the end of 2020, and that Halo Infinite will be a launch title. Halo Infinite will reportedly also be available for Xbox One and PC, as originally announced, as “Microsoft is seeking to get rid of the concept of console generations.”
As for other titles, the website reports that the next game by Ninja Theory, a newly acquired Microsoft studio, will be available in early 2020.
