Xbox Project Scarlett is Called 'Xbox Series X', is a Black Monolith

Xbox have been working with over a dozen different developers to get the console primed for release, with more announcements expected soon.

Tonight, Microsoft pulled off a surprise and announced Xbox Series X, a new Xbox console that will arrive holiday 2020. Xbox's Phil Spencer told GameSpot that they were heavily focused on finding a happy marriage between design and function: "There's always this tension between design and the kind of acoustics and cooling and function of the console", Spencer said, "and we were not going to compromise on function".

The Xbox Series X is big time news, and it looks like it won't stop there.

Alongside Xbox Series X, we also unveiled the new Xbox Wireless Controller.

There's so much uncertainty with each new console generation. The new controller will also be backwards compatible to use on the current Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.

This bombshell announcement came out of left field at the Game Awards 2019, and now we know the new console will be coming in Holiday 2020.

Will it be backward compatible? Yes. Microsoft didn't say whether the game would be a Series X launch title, or even when it would be released. Xbox Series X is also designed for a future in the cloud, with unique capabilities built into the hardware and software to make it as easy as possible to bring great games to both console and elsewhere. As we branch out and extend gaming to more players around the world, console gaming will remain at the heart of our Xbox offering. Series X, said Spencer, will deliver "the fastest, most powerful Xbox" in the company's history, with games already in development "to take full advantage" of the top-tier model's next-gen power. On behalf of Team Xbox, we're excited to enter the future of console gaming with you and can't wait to share more in 2020.
