In 2020, a new Xbox is scheduled to launch. It's currently codenamed "Project Scarlett," and we know a decent amount about it.




Back in 2018, when Microsoft first teased next-generation Xbox plans, the company spoke of "consoles" in the works. Xbox lead Phil Spencer told Business Insider in June that those plans were scrapped.




In a recently published GameSpot interview with Spencer from back in June, he further detailed that cancelation: "We are not working on a streaming-only console right now. We are looking at the phone in your pocket as the destination for you to stream, and the console that we have allows you to play the games locally."

When it comes to video game consoles, Microsoft's Xbox One has been handily defeated by Sony's PlayStation 4.
Sony boasts over 100 million PS4 consoles sold, while Microsoft outright stopped reporting Xbox console sales numbers — estimates put the Xbox One somewhere in the range of 40 to 60 million sold.
It's no slouch, but Microsoft's game console isn't likely to catch up. And that's why it's good news for Microsoft that a new Xbox is just over the horizon: The next Xbox, codenamed "Project Scarlett," is scheduled to arrive in 2020.
