We don't know when Microsoft plans to reveal more details around the Xbox Series X, such as pricing, release date, and backward compatibility. Xbox's Phil Spencer has just hinted at news for the latter feature in particular next month in August.
"I think in August we will have more to say on that," said Spencer, referencing Xbox Series X's backward compatibility in an interview with iJustine (and first reported by VideoGamesChronicle). Spencer added that he was "encouraged to be able to talk more" about Series X's backward compatibility plans.
Microsoft has actually been talking up Xbox Series X's backward compatibility for a while now. Back in May, it was claimed that Series X could potentially double the frame rate of older titles, even pushing the frame rate counter to 120 in some rare cases.
Multiple reports previously claimed that August was when Microsoft would reveal the "Lockhart" model of the Xbox Series X. The second, unconfirmed box is said to be a slimmer, less powerful version of the Xbox Series X, and has been circling in reports earlier this year.
Alongside the reports about the second console's existence, dev kit notes seemed to leak the Lockhart model. Two codenames for Microsoft consoles were seen in June under the Xbox Scarlett dev kit: Anaconda and Lockhart.
At the present time, nothing has been confirmed by Microsoft for August. No event has been set by the company for next month, although this would fall in line with Microsoft's plan for monthly next-gen reveals, a plan which the company first outlined back in May earlier this year.
Of course, this all comes hot off the heels of Microsoft's huge first-party games event for Xbox Series X last week. A strong combination of established franchises like Halo Infinite and new IPs like Everwild and Avowed made for a great event, and team USgamer has largely picked Xbox Series X to have the edge over the PlayStayion 5 (for now).
