Where a 'Holiday 2020' release window was announced alongside some background and info on some of the tech that will be powering the next generation of Xbox. Plus, Halo Infinite will be a launch title. In terms of hardware, much like the recent PlayStation 5 reveal, Project Scarlett will feature a fast SSD for loading that can be utilised in the same way as memory - for instantly streaming game data.
Plus, a custom AMD "Zen 2 and Navi processor" that is described as being four times as powerful as the Xbox One X. Microsoft even states that the console will be capable of 8K, 120 FPS frame-rates, and real-time raytracing. Though we suspect, not all three at once.
“With a custom-designed AMD processor, high bandwidth GDDR6 memory, and a next-generation solid state drive (SSD), Project Scarlett will give developers the power they need to bring their creative visions to life. Thousands of games across four console generations will look and play best on Project Scarlett.”
The reveal echoes what we got for Project Scorpio before it was renamed Xbox One X, so that means a full hardware reveal will come at a later date. One important launch feature though, is that Scarlett will arrive with four generations of Xbox content. Which means games for every Xbox console, and quite possibly the entire Xbox Game Pass for Console library will be there on day one. Plus, there are hints that Scarlett might enhance Xbox One titles in the same way the Xbox One X does, but next-gen style.
