Rumor: Two New Xbox Consoles To Be Announced At E3 2019, Halo Infinite Will Be a Launch Title
Microsoft is reportedly working on two new Xbox game consoles that will be revealed at E3 2019. Halo Infinite is going to be one of the games that will be a launch title for the next Xbox.
This new rumor comes from French Website JeuxVideo who also shared a report on how Microsoft and Nintendo are forming a new partnership by releasing games like Ori and the Blind Forest, Cuphead, and Xbox Game Pass for the Nintendo Switch.
The two new Xbox consoles have been rumored before in the past. They are codenamed as Xbox Lockhart and Xbox Anaconda.
What Is Xbox Lockhart and Xbox Anaconda?
Xbox Lockhart and Xbox Anaconda are both a part of the Xbox Scarlett devices which is reportedly the next-generation of Xbox consoles. Lockhart is a more digital-focused device that ships without a disc drive but 1 TB SSD. It will come with a custom NAVI GPU offering 4 TFLOPs of power, 12 GB RAM and custom 8 Core CPU.
Xbox Anaconda is a more powerful version of Lockhart with custom 8 Core CPU, custom NAVI GPU offering 12 TFLOPs of power, and 16 GB RAM. Both of these consoles will come packed in with 1 TB SSD drive for storage space.
The rumor states that Microsoft will announce both of these consoles at their E3 2019 press conference. The launch of both of these devices is planned for Fall 2020 so there is quite a lot of time in it.
So what about games? Well, the rumor talks about Halo Infinite being a cross-generation game that will be a launch title, so it might release in Fall 2020. After Microsoft acquired Ninja Theory, their next game might be released in early 2020 although since it will be out before the release of the next-generation of Xbox consoles, it might not be a launch title.
