Microsoft’s naming scheme for the Xbox console has been confusing, to say the least, and during The Game Awards 2019 they unveiled the Xbox Series X, but now it turns out that the next-generation console is simply called Xbox.
In a recent interview with Business Insider, a Microsoft representative said, “The name we’re carrying forward to the next generation is simply Xbox, and at The Game Awards, you saw that name come to life through the Xbox Series X.”
This opens the door for many more consoles to be introduced in the Xbox next-generation consoles as series can be further progressed and there can be a higher performance console that might be released at a later date.
Judging from the hardware specs, it is nice to see that the console has top of the line components which should give the PlayStation 5 and PC a run for their money, and while Xbox One did could not catch up with the rival console, the “Xbox” could change that.
As of right now only Halo Infinite and Hellblade 2: Senua’s Saga are announced for the Xbox which is expected to be released during Holiday 2020, but the biggest differentiator will be the price which could swing the tide in the anyone’s favor.
Right now it is not known how much these consoles will go for, but it is to be expected around the $500 price range.
We will keep updating as and when we have more information about the next-generation Xbox.
