According to leaked legal documents from the Microsoft vs FTC lawsuit, a refreshed version of the Xbox Series X, codenamed ‘Brooklin’, is in the works. The documents reveal a new circular design for the console, along with increased internal storage of 2TB.
The slides about Xbox Series X Brooklin indicate that it will launch at the same price as the base console but will offer several improvements. These include a faster wireless connection, more storage, an updated controller, and a more sustainable design aimed at reducing power consumption and energy draw in standby mode.
The upcoming controller, known as Sebille, is described as “more immersive.” It will feature gyro support, Bluetooth 5.2, and a direct Cloud connection. Additionally, the controller will have precision haptic feedback and haptics that double as speakers. The inclusion of new modular thumbsticks is intended to improve the durability of the device.
The Sebille controller is expected to be announced later this year, with a launch planned for late May. It will precede an “Xbox gaming beat” event in June 2024, possibly Microsoft’s showcase for E3 that year. Following this, a slight refresh of the Xbox Series S is scheduled for August, with the launch of Xbox Series X Brooklin planned for late October, just in time for Black Friday and the holiday season.
In addition to the console news, leaked documents also revealed planned projects from Zenimax, including remasters of The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion and Fallout 3, as well as new Doom and Dishonored games.
