Halo Infinite to debut alongside console

Microsoft revealed its planned new console, tentatively named 'Project Scarlett,' during its E3 press conference on Sunday. The console will have a new AMD processor, GDDR6 memory, and a "next-generation" solid state drive, and will also support 8K resolution, hardware-accelerated ray tracing, and variable refresh rate. The console will debut in the 2020 holiday season with Halo Infinite as a launch title.

Microsoft launched the original Xbox One console in 2013. The Xbox One S version, which added 4K video playback and game resolution upscaling, as well as HDR support, launched in August 2016. The Xbox One X version, which added native 4K game rendering, released in November 2017. An "All-Digital Edition" of the Xbox One S without an optical disc drive launched on May 7.
