E3 2019: Microsoft Announces New Xbox Scarlett Console After Teases

Microsoft Teases Xbox Scarlet Reveal in Hidden Codes - E3 2019

As always though, we'll be sure to bring you more information on Microsoft's next-gen games console as and when we get it. It mentioned it would have a custom processor made by AMD that will use the latest Zen 2 and Radeon RDNA architecture.

Project Scarlett will also support graphics features like hardware accelerated raytracing, 8K resolution, and frame rates for games that can go up to 120fps.

There was no unveiling of prototypes or renders of the hardware and Microsoft was mum on the pricing of what will be presumably a hefty early adopters tax. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate runs $14.99 per month, which isn't bad considering that the console version of Game Pass and Live are both $9.99 each monthly.

Some of the shots we saw in today's E3 announcement trailer are more Planet Earth than your typical flight simulator fare.

The tech giant announced Sunday that the console - codenamed "Project Scarlett" - will debut at the end of next year. In terms of raw performance, Scarlett is 4x more powerful than the Xbox One X, which puts thing into perspective.

Update: Microsoft actually notes that the $4.99 price for Xbox Game Pass on PC is an introductory one only available for a limited time, not its permanent cost. At last year's event, Spencer teased that the next generation could be a family of consoles.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is returning in 2020, Microsoft confirmed during its E3 2019 keynote.

At this time, Microsoft is saying that Project Scarlett will launch for the Holidays of 2020, alongside the next installment in the Halo franchise: Halo Infinite.
