Microsoft Confirms What We Suspected About The Next Xbox

Xbox is making a huge splash this holiday season, debuting not one, but three new console refreshes for happy gamers to enjoy. Of course, if you've been paying attention to the leaks pouring out of the Xbox camp over the last year, then you may not be quite so surprised by this turn of events.

During Microsoft's court battle with the FTC over its purchase of Activision Blizzard, a number of internal Microsoft documents were released online, revealing many of the gaming giant's upcoming plans. Among these revelations were plans for a new version of the Xbox Series X, codenamed "Brooklin." Though Xbox boss Phil Spencer largely laughed off these leaked documents, claiming that they were outdated and mostly speculative, it appears the Brooklin console will eventually see the light of day as the newly-minted Xbox Series X Galaxy Black Special Edition. Read on to see the reveal of the new consoles and what the Special Edition could mean for the future of Xbox gaming.

Three new Xboxes are coming soon

The Xbox Series X Galaxy Black Special Edition is the new crown jewel of the Xbox line, boasting 2 TB of storage and a sleek new wireless controller with a matching black-and-green color scheme. Outside of the storage capabilities, it seems the system is designed with the same specs as the current Series X models, which might give some gamers pause when they see its $600 price tag.

Despite the fact that this Xbox console has seemingly dropped a number of the features originally planned for Brooklin, like faster WiFi and a revolutionary new controller, its overall design and storage capability make it seem likely that this is the final product of the Brooklyn project. The fact that other games and projects mentioned in the court documents — including newly-announced titles like "Doom: The Dark Ages" — have since come to fruition is also of great interest to Microsoft fans. Gamers who pored over the leaks from last fall are no doubt curious to learn if some of the other projects in those documents are still on the way, like Xbox's long-rumored handheld console.

Joining this edition in stores will be the Robot White Xbox Series X Digital Edition, which retails at $449 and boasts 1 TB of storage, and a Robot White variant of the current 1 TB Xbox Series X, which only costs $349. Both of these are great options for the more budget-conscious Xbox players out there. It looks like a good time to join the Xbox ecosystem — at least until we find out the company's plans for Generation 10.
