We're only around a year and a half out since Xbox Series X|S launched, but are we about to see more Xbox hardware? The XboxEra podcast — which had Phil Spencer on as a guest last week — discussed the matter in a recent 'Rumour Mill' show segment.
One of the show's hosts, Shpeshal Nick, claims that he's heard of new Xbox hardware to be shown in 2022. The host goes on to say that it be a little different to what people are expecting:
"All I was told that I'm allowed to say, is that sometime this year, or I should say maybe sometime this year because there's a lot of stuff delaying things lately. Whether it's the Ukraine situation, still COVID issues, chip shortages, all that sort of stuff so I'm not going to say it's definitely happening this year."
"But, I've been told it should be this year [...] I'm saying it should be this year."
"Xbox currently has some hardware to show [...] that falls into a different bucket than people are probably expecting."
And here's a timestamp of the discussion:
The show segment's name, the rumour mill, tells us to take this one with a pinch of salt and we definitely will. We are left wondering what this "different" hardware could be though.
What do you make of this? Could we see new hardware announced this year? Let us know your thoughts below.
