Microsoft Teases 'All-New Xbox Hardware' For Gamescom Reveal

No Caption Provided

With E3 in the rearview mirror, Gamescom is the next big convention on the schedule. That's because on August 21, "all-new Xbox hardware and accessories" will be unveiled. Gone is the reference to "all-new Xbox hardware and accessories", and in its place is a promise of "new Xbox One bundles and accessories". It's reportedly being developed under the codename of Scarlett, and may be a family of devices rather than just a new console.

Even though the current generation Xbox One was initially released in late 2013 and saw subsequent updates with the Xbox One S and Xbox One X in 2016 and 2017 respectively, we aren't likely to see next-generation Xbox hardware at the event.

Xbox to Announce New Hardware at Gamescom

One of the major new reveals will be an all-new PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Mode coming to the Xbox One. As soon as Microsoft realised people thought they meant a new console they changed the wording to "new Xbox One bundles and accessories". One of those is Forza Horizon 4, but there's no mention of Crackdown 3 in the blog post.

In the United States, the Xbox One S 1TB Starter bundle including 3 months of Xbox game Pass, 3 months of Xbox live Gold and a free copy of the Rare Replay anthology was just $229.99. And although there's the mention of "a few surprises" it's unclear whether they'll announce any major new AAA games.

Lastly, Microsoft announced a handful of games that will be present on the show floor at their booth space. We'll find out when Microsoft holds its event on August 21 at 7:30am PT.
