According to multiple sources, Scarlet is the codename for potentially two versions of Micorsoft's next-gen consoles - Lockhart for a more affordable, baseline model and Anaconda for a Xbox One X-like high-end model for those wishing for more power. In the end, we're left with the feeling that the next Xbox will be able to go toe-to-toe with the PlayStation 5, setting the stage for another round of the console wars. Microsoft has been known to drop a cheeky message or hint at a big console announcement, and it seems like there's precisely what it's doing in the lead up to E3 2019. This of course stance has definitely changed over the past few years with the introduction of backwards compatibility for the Xbox One and the mass purchases of multiple game studios in the recent years.
The Scarlett will have faster load times, will support 120 frames per second, 8K resolution and will use SSD for virtual ram.
Project Scarlett will set a new bar for console power, speed and performance, arriving Holiday 2020 alongside Halo Infinite. Halo's new Halo Infinite title will be a launch title for the new console.
It's an interesting trailer for sure, but it doesn't really tell us much about what we should expect from the game. We'll have more details for you when they're available, so stay tuned for those!
