Last year, Microsoft announced at E3 2018 that it was working on the next-generation Xbox console. While there are rumors floating around that it may be a series of devices — ranging from an Xbox One X successor to a streaming box — it seems that the consoles will be officially unveiled at E3 2019. Since Sony isn't attending the major event this year, it's a great platform for Microsoft to dominate the news cycle by revealing new hardware.
According to Thurrott, Microsoft will talk about its upcoming "Lockhart" and "Anaconda" devices at E3 2019. The outlet said, "Don't expect to hear pricing just yet, but the company wants it to be known that they are moving full steam ahead." Anaconda is supposed to be the Xbox One X successor and the new most powerful console ever made.
That's not all though, Halo Infinite is allegedly a launch game for the upcoming hardware. Thurrott added, "With a brand new game engine, the team behind the game is trying to make the story adapt to decisions the user makes and the game may have more... role-playing... elements" than earlier titles in the acclaimed franchise.
As with any such leak, take it with a grain of salt until we receive official confirmation. However, that may not happen for many months. Thurrott has leaked numerous accurate news stories in the past so this report may have merit.
