One of the rumors about Project Scarlett says it's Microsoft's next generation general-console plan that covers two systems.
Microsoft at this year's E3 is reportedly the high-end model codenamed Anaconda. A second lower-specification model, supposedly Lockhart, is also in the works. Now it seems that things could have changed. Or maybe not.
All this goes back to the E3 2018, where Xbox boss Phil Spencer said on stage that Microsoft is working on several new consoles. Spencer now tells BusinessInsider that Microsoft has already released a new console, the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, and announced a second one with Project Scarlett. So that's exactly where there are two.
"Last year we called consoles, and we delivered a console, and we've now described another console, which I think is plural," Spencer said.
"Technically, that's the plural," he added with a laugh. "Right now, we are focusing on the Scarlett project and what we have brought to the stage."
