Microsoft is keeping on reptile-themed codenames for its gaming console Xbox.
The first Xbox One was codenamed Durango and the Xbox One X was given the codename Scorpio.
The codenames of the upcoming gaming consoles of Microsoft are “Anaconda” and “Lockhart” Microsoft’s two planned next-gen consoles, and the successors for both the Xbox One X and Xbox One S, respectively.
Codename Anaconda will be just like the present Xbox One X, with updated hardware, processors and graphics from AMD.
Anaconda might also have an SSD storage to decrease the load time of games. Codename Lockhart, that will act as the more affordable Xbox will be just like the present Xbox One S.
Naturally, both of these consoles will fully support existing backward compatible Xbox and Xbox 360 games, and of course Xbox One titles.
Microsoft has to fulfill its promise of excellent first-party exclusives for the next-gen consoles to answer the current skepticism. Those announcements would likely come in 2019 as well.
Microsoft’s next consoles is also going to put a huge focus on the company’s xCloud game streaming service. Microsoft is also thinking about the public trials of the service next year, and it will make Xbox games available across different platforms such as PCs, phones, and consoles.
