Everything Microsoft Announced At E3 2019


Recommended Posts

The first details on a powerful new Xbox console, release dates for anticipated games like Cyberpunk 2077, and another developer acquired by Xbox Game Studios led Microsoft’s packed slate of announcements for its E3 briefing on Sunday.

Project Scarlett, the next-generation Xbox console, will be released for the 2020 holiday season. Halo Infinite will launch alongside it.

The pitch sounds a lot like what Sony was talking about with PlayStation 5. The emphasis is on “reducing load times.” There will be a solid-state hard drive which can be used as “virtual RAM” to cut down on loading times. The AMD processor will be “four times more powerful than Xbox One X,” it will use “high-bandwidth GDDR6” RAM, and will be able to do 8 K resolution and 120 FPS.


  • Cyberpunk 2077 will star Keanu Reeves, and it’s coming out on April 16, 2020.
