Project Scarlett Xbox console announced - release date, specs, launch titles, and more

Project Scarlett Xbox console announced - release date, specs, launch titles, and more

Microsoft unveiled their brand new Xbox console, codenamed Project Scarlett, and here's everything we know about the groundbreaking new console so far.


With news about the PlayStation 5 already out there, everyone was just waiting on Microsoft to see what their response to the impressive new console from Sony was.

Sony doesn't have a presence at E3 this year, leaving Microsoft to steal the show with the announcement of their new Xbox. The Xbox One X may be the most powerful console available right now but all of that will be changing with the release of this console.

The Xbox One X will no longer be the most powerful console.


Microsoft stressed their new console will be built for the goal of having the best gaming experience possible. It's clear the team has learned from the underwhelming response of the Xbox One, which was being marketed as an all-in-one entertainment device.

The team is looking to eliminate load times altogether so players are able to get right into the action. They have partnered with AMD to build a new hybrid CPU that is said to be four times as powerful as the Xbox One X.

It will come with a solid state drive built-in, lending itself to lightning-quick load times. 

On top of this, the new console will support up to 120 FPS, 8K resolution gaming and backwards compatibility.

Halo: Infinite will be a launch title.

When does Scarlett release?

Xbox Scarlett is set for a Holiday 2020 release with Halo: Infinite as a launch title.

Outside of this, there's still not a ton to know about the new console, including what it will eventually be called upon release.

As the release date inches closer, expect to hear more about the new console including a price and other launch titles.
