Microsoft is planning to launch its next-generation Xbox in two years, according to Thurrott.com. It is reportedly developing a “family of devices”, in fact, with the codename Scarlett. Keep in mind Xbox chief Phil Spencer revealed earlier this week that Microsoft is “deep into architecturing the next Xbox consoles8221;, so it shouldn8217;t be too surprising to learn that Microsoft is working on more than one console.

However, we8217;re not sure what form they could take or how they would differ. Microsoft could be developing streaming devices, since it8217;s also hard at work on a new game streaming service. A couple years ago, Microsoft was rumoured to be prepping “Xbox TV” devices, which were originally meant to be $99 streaming sticks to access Xbox One games from a second TV in a house, but that never happened.
Honestly, Microsoft hasn’t officially announced its next Xbox plans, and it8217;s far too early to speculate. Nevertheless, we will keep you posted.
