According to leaked documents from the FTC, Microsoft is planning to release an Xbox Series X refresh in October 2024. 

Codenamed “Brooklin,” the new console will be a digital-only model with 2TB of storage, and it will be priced at $499.

The leaked documents also mention a new Xbox controller that is in development. The new controller will have a gyroscope, which will allow it to be used for motion controls in games. The controller will also have quieter buttons.

“Brooklin will deliver 4K Gen9 console gaming with more internal storage, faster Wi-Fi, reduced power, a more immersive controller, and a beautiful redesign that elevates the all-digital experience of the Xbox ecosystem,” the document reads.

In addition to the Xbox Series X refresh and new controller, the leaked documents also mention some early details about the next-generation Xbox console. 

The next-generation Xbox is scheduled to be released in 2028, and it will reportedly be a cloud-hybrid console that could potentially switch to Arm architecture.

Elsewhere in the Xbox universe, the green console has just teamed up with F1 team BWT Alpine as a console partner. Xbox & PC Game Pass logos will be visible on the car’s halo, starting from this week’s Japanese Grand Prix.
