An All-Digital Xbox Series X Is Launching This Summer, It’s Claimed

All-Digital Xbox Series X Europe

Microsoft could be getting ready to announce and release an all-digital version of the Xbox Series X console this summer.

According to a claim from Exputer, Microsoft will be launching a white version of the console that doesn’t feature a disc drive at some point either in June or July.

The new version of the Xbox Series X, the report claims, will be all white and also have an improved heatsink.

Recently, Xbox head Phil Spencer said that the company wasn’t planning on phasing out physical games for its consoles. In his interview with Stephen Totilo, Spencer said that the company’s “strategy does not hinge on people moving all-digital” and that getting rid of physical games was “not a strategic thing” for Xbox.

This isn’t the first time a discless Xbox Series X console has been reported on. Back during Microsoft’s case against the FTC over the acquisition of Activision Blizzard it was discovered, thanks to an error on Microsoft’s part, that a cylindrical version of the console was in development. This version, known as “Project Brooklin” would feature 2TB of storage, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, and a new controller.

It’s unsure if this reported new console would also match any of the features or design of the “Project Brooklin” version.

Insider Gaming has yet to independently verify the claims of a new Xbox Series X console, so please take this report with a grain of salt. Microsoft has yet to respond to a request for comment on the report.
