Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox is being touted as a “cloud hybrid” console

A large batch of documents filed in the FTC case against Microsoft have been leaked, providing a comprehensive look at the company’s hardware plans for the rest of the decade.

The documents (shared on X by Wario64), which include unredacted emails and hardware roadmaps, show that Microsoft plans to release an updated, all-digital Xbox Series in October 2024 with power, faster Wi-Fi, reduced power consumption, a more immersive controller and a seemingly cylindrical redesign.

The console is codenamed “Brooklin” and is described by Microsoft as “the most powerful Xbox ever, now enchantingly completely digital.” The retail price is $499 – the same price as the current version of the Xbox Series X.

The redesigned gamepad mentioned in this document is called “Sebile” and features precise haptic feedback, quieter buttons, modular thumbsticks, a rechargeable and replaceable battery and an accelerometer.

Longer-term, Microsoft outlined its hardware plans for the next generation, saying it wants to develop a “hybrid gaming platform capable of harnessing the combined power of client and cloud to deliver deeper immersion and entirely new classes of gaming experiences.” “

The company said the unnamed “cloud hybrid gaming” console is scheduled to launch in 2028 and could use an ARM CPU and GPU co-developed or licensed by AMD.

Microsoft said it envisions the next-generation device as “optimized for real-time gameplay and developers,” and the company added that it will “enable new levels of performance beyond the capabilities of the client hardware alone.” The company also stated that it will use “AI and ML support” to optimize and accelerate game performance, operations and development.

Game Developer has asked Microsoft for comment on the leaks.
