It is expected that an enhanced Xbox controller model codenamed Sebile will be announced in 2023. It will feature functions such as gyro support, Bluetooth 5.2, precise haptic feedback, and speakers that also serve as VCA haptics.
A second revision of the Xbox Series S console codenamed Ellewood is planned for September 2025. The upgrades include support for Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2, as well as reduced power consumption.
Images and details of Microsoft's discless version of the Xbox Series X have leaked online. As part of the recent document leaks in the ongoing FTC attempt to halt the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, many interesting pieces of information about various projects in the gaming industry have come to light.
As part of the court proceedings, Microsoft was required to submit a series of documents, some of which are available online. One of the main revelations from this document leak was that Microsoft intends to release the next Xbox console in 2028. Similarly, according to the documents, the PlayStation 6 is expected to be released within the same timeframe. These pieces of information were discussed in a chat between Microsoft and Xbox leadership in May 2022, although the messages did not reveal any further details about the next console generation of both companies.
In a future closer than 2028, Xbox fans may still have something to look forward to. In what Tom Warren of The Verge has called the biggest leak in Xbox history, court documents have revealed details about a discless version of the Xbox Series X. Codenamed Brooklin, the new version of the console will feature a USB-C port on the front and have 2 TB of storage space, an increase from the current 1 TB of the Series X. These documents include images of both the console and the controller and also reveal the planned release date of the console in November 2025 and a price of $499.
In addition to the discless Xbox Series X reveal, the documents also show that the Xbox controller will receive an upgrade codenamed Sebile, expected to be announced in 2023. This new model of the accessory will be available at retail for $69.99 and will feature an accelerometer for gyro support as well as Bluetooth 5.2. Additionally, the Sebile controller will provide "precise haptic feedback" and VCA haptics that "also serve as speakers," along with a rechargeable and interchangeable battery, modular thumbsticks, and quieter buttons.
On September 1st, Microsoft released a revised Xbox Series S console with a black casing and 1TB of storage space. However, leaked court documents suggest that a second revision of the smaller console is expected in September 2025. This project, codenamed Ellewood, appears to upgrade the device to provide Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 support. It will come with the new version of the Xbox controller and also includes some additional adjustments, such as reduced power consumption in standby mode.
