According to rumors dating back to last year, it was suggested that Microsoft could already be working on its next-gen Xbox console. Given that next-gen consoles are typically revealed during the mid or three-quarter waypoint of the current-gen console’s lifecycle, this did not really come as a surprise.
Now in a post made on the NeoGAF forums by a user called Braldyr who claims to be an industry insider, it seems that the next-gen Xbox consoles could be revealed next month. Braldyr posted a list of things that Microsoft is expected to announce at the event, and one of the items on that list is the next-gen Xbox.
This is not the first time we’ve heard that the next-gen Xbox could be revealed at E3. Earlier this year in February, we had heard a rumor that there could be two new Xbox consoles revealed at the event. One of them is codenamed Lockhart, while the other is codenamed Anaconda.
If the rumors are to be believed, one of the consoles is said to be a streaming-only device. This is aimed at gamers who don’t mind streaming their games instead of playing it locally. With Microsoft having announced its streaming service, Project xCloud, back in 2018, this does not really come as a surprise. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but we should find out in the next couple of weeks.
