A Xbox Series X console refresh has been leaked alongside a new controller in a set of recently surfaced FTC documents. The console will be digital-only and will supposedly be released in Late 2024.
2023 has been Xbox’s biggest in years. Alongside Bethesda, they released both Hi-Fi Rush and Starfield. Additionally, the United States Court officially approved the company’s acquisition of Activision. Expect Xbox to reveal more information on its future hardware and gaming lineup in the coming months.

The leaked documents have not yet revealed the release date of the brand-new controller.
