Microsoft is working hard with several game-related projects, says a new report, intended to make the future's Xbox models more formidable game consoles than its predecessors. The company is working on several new Xbox models, updates for Windows Core OS, as well as more support for mobile games.
In addition to the discless Xbox One that will launch by spring 2019 with a disc to -digital program that will help players convert their libraries to digital format, Microsoft also works with Xbox One S and Xbox One X followers. According to Windows Central these "Scarlett" consoles will still have disk drives, at least as an option.
The Xbox One S sequel is called "Lockhart" internally, and it's rumored to be at least as powerful as the current Xbox One X. "Anaconda," meanwhile is the code name of the Xbox One X sequel, which is expected to be more powerful and more expensive than the upcoming Xbox entry level. The console will provide a "groundbreaking" gaming experience and can be sent with SSD storage instead of HDD to increase the load time. Both consoles will start in the 2020 season.
Microsoft also fines its Windows Core OS, writes the report so that the next Xbox One models will be compatible with anything that can run on current Xbox One consoles, including older titles. GameCore is a new initiative that helps developers code game that works both on Xbox and Windows 1
Finally, Microsoft appears that players who want to try Project xCloud will have a decent hardware at their disposal. xCloud game flow will work on mobile devices as well as Xbox One consoles, and Microsoft works with accessory partners like Razer to ensure that players will be able to purchase controls that work with mobile devices to play xCloud games.
