During the infamous trial between the FTC and Microsoft, new leaks have emerged revealing information about the future of Xbox. The leaked documents include details about upcoming releases, plans for new consoles, and Xbox leaders’ opinions on the competition.
One of the leaks exposes the name and image of “Brooklin”, a revision of the Xbox Series X that Microsoft is developing. This new version of the console will be released in 2024 and will feature eye-catching characteristics such as a cylindrical design and no disc drive. It will have a 2 TB capacity, a front USB-C port, compatibility with Wi-Fi 6E, and Bluetooth 5.2. A revision of the Xbox Series S with a 1 TB capacity is also expected. Both consoles will receive a new controller called “Sebile”, which will include gyroscopic support, direct cloud connection, and precise haptic feedback.
In terms of games, the documents reveal that “The Elder Scrolls VI” will not be available on PlayStation 5, indicating that Microsoft plans to keep it as an Xbox exclusive. Additionally, Bethesda’s plans have been revealed, which include a remaster of “The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion”, new installments of “Doom”, “GhostWire: Tokyo”, and “Dishonored”, as well as a project called “Kestrel” and a game based on a licensed IP.
The leaked emails also reveal Xbox’s reaction to the price increase of PlayStation 5. Xbox’s Chief Financial Officer, Tim Stuart, complained about the purchasing options Sony offered with their system, while Liz Hamren, former Head of Platform Engineering and Hardware at Xbox, compared the specifications of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, highlighting Xbox’s advantage in terms of performance.
These leaks unveil exciting news for Xbox fans, but it is important to remember that plans can change and that leaked information may not be entirely accurate.
