The Xbox Series S is all-but-confirmed, having not actually been revealed yet. Controllers appeared in the wild with branding stating compatibility with Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, so it definitely exists. While we'd heard before that the console was planned to be revealed earlier this year, the ongoing global pandemic has thrown many things off. We'll be sure to provide updates when the Xbox Series S is officially announced.
