Xbox Series X confirmed as Project Scarlet by Microsoft, releasing 2020

Ladies and gentleman, it's here - Xbox Project Scarlett is no more, it is officially called Xbox Series X. The name of the console, and its look, debuted at The Game Awards 2019 and it is certainly something to be seen. Its industrial design enables us to deliver four times the processing power of Xbox One X in the most quiet and efficient way, something that is critically important in delivering truly immersive gameplay. Known until now under the codename 'Project Scarlett, ' this is Microsoft's most powerful gaming console ever, according to the company.

Speaking to GameSpot, Microsoft's head of Xbox Phil Spencer said: "We wanted to design a console where the form was driven by the function". "Obviously", Spencer said, "in the name "Series X", it gives us freedom to do other things with that name so that we can create descriptors when we need to". With the new Xbox Series X, we will realize that vision. The new Xbox Wireless Controller has a Share button and an upgraded d-pad "derived from the Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller".

The upcoming Xbox model will support 4K/60fps with the potential for playing at up to 120fps, as well as Variable Refresh Rate and up to 8K resolutions.

Senua's Saga Hellblade II was also announced at The Game Awards as one of the first titles to be coming to the console.


From what we can see, the system's controller looks incredibly similar to the current generation console controller. We'll have more as we get it.

There's so much uncertainty with each new console generation. "Developers around the globe are already hard at work building games for Xbox Series X. Our 15 Xbox Game Studios are developing the largest and most creatively diverse lineup of exclusive games in our history".

Building on our compatibility promise, with Xbox Series X we're also investing in consumer-friendly pathways to game ownership across generations.
