Microsoft’s New Xbox is Rumored to Be Codenamed Anaconda
It appears the Microsof's next-generation Xbox, expected to arrive in 2020, is codenamed Anaconda.
Windows Central claims that Microsoft is preparing to ship two new consoles as part of its overall “Scarlett” next-generation Xbox plans.
Codename Anaconda will be the equivalent of the current Xbox One X, with improved hardware and processors and graphics from AMD. Anaconda may also include SSD storage to reduce game load times.
Microsoft is also reportedly preparing a second console, codenamed Lockhart, that will act as the more affordable Xbox.
Microsoft could also be preparing a disc-less version of the Xbox One S for 2019, as it was reported last month. Windows Central claims the software giant may announce this cheaper Xbox as early as next month. Microsoft is also reportedly considering a disc-to-digital program that will convert physical disc libraries into digital ones.
Microsoft’s next consoles are also expected to be connected with the company’s xCloud game streaming service. Microsoft is planning to open up public trials of the service next year, and it will make Xbox games available across PCs, phones, and consoles.
