Hyperkin possibly developing wireless racing wheel for Xbox One

If you love racing simulators, then purchasing a racing wheel is an easy decision. While there are many such devices on the market, the wireless options are rather limited. Luckily, it seems like a wireless racing wheel is being developed for the Xbox One by Hyperkin. You may remember Hyperkin as the company that recently revived the "Duke" controller for fans of the original Xbox.

According to IGN, the racing wheel will be shown in prototype form at E3 2018. It's unclear when it'll launch on how much it'll cost. However, given the fact that it's supposedly wireless, it probably won't be cheap. IGN also said that "the wheel controller will connect using the Xbox One's wireless chip, and the controller's dock will become a charging station when put in place." Added functionality is always welcome.

As with any such leak, take it with a grain of salt until we receive official confirmation. Hopefully Hyperkin will provided more information about the product now that it's out in the open. Playing games like Forza Motorsport 7 would be an absolute blast with such an accessory because it provides more convenience.

If the accessory exists, hopefully the manufacturer will allow gamers to test it out next week on the show floor. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more or receive a response from Hyperkin. Until then, you can gawk at the gorgeous black-and-white design.
