Leaks on the future of Xbox continue thanks to documents that emerged from the Federal Trade Commission databases, which contain “hot” material on Microsoft’s plans for the near future. In particular, we are back to talking about the successor to the Xbox Series
According to the documentation, it seems that Microsoft is aiming for one total conversion towards a “Cloud Hybrid” platform/architecture, a term that is actually rather vague but which seems to foreshadow the desire to focus everything on Cloud-based architectures for the company’s next consoles.
The new next-generation Xbox could be based on CPU ARM64 vs x64 (Zen6)equipped with a GPU designed in partnership with AMD or under AMD license (Navi 5/RDNA5), among the “graphic innovations” we talk about Next Generation DirectX Ray TracingDynamic Global Illumination, optimizations in micropolygonal rendering and ML Based Super Resolution.
The console will also be backwards compatible with games and accessories from previous Xbox generations, thus fully embracing the philosophy that Phil Spencer has been pursuing for some years.
The new Xbox platform will arrive on the market in 2028 but first it will be preceded by new versions of Xbox Series Even in this case, nothing reported has been officially confirmed and plans may have changed compared to the documentation that has emerged.
