Xbox Project Scarlett Pre-order/InStock/Availability Tracker

Last Update: October 22nd, 2019

The Microsoft Xbox Scarlett is an upcoming game console  announced at E3 2019 on June 9th to compete with upcoming Sony PS5. Xbox Scarlett is one of two next-gen consoles that Microsoft is working on. The other is reportedly called Anaconda and is supposedly being positioned as a budget next-gen console that may not feature a disc drive (similar to the Xbox One S: All Digital Edition). That leaves the Scarlett as the premium powerhouse of Xbox’s next-gen plans. The release date for Xbox Project Scarlett is in late 2020. Here is a pre-order & in stock & availability tracker for Xbox Scarlett.

Xbox Project Scarlett specs and release date

With only a sizzle reel to go by, we don’t yet know what the Xbox Project Scarlett will look like, let alone if it’ll eventually be named the Xbox Two. But we do have a good idea of its internal hardware, and the Xbox Project Scarlett specs are already sounding quite special.

Using custom-designed processor from AMD making use of Zen 2 and Navi architecture, Xbox Project Scarlett will be 4x more powerful than the Xbox One X. It’ll be possible of running games at 120Hz frame rates, at potential 8K resolutions, while also showcasing fancy real-time ray-tracing tech. It’s the works.

An SSD will come as standard, as with the PS5, which will give it the option of using its storage system as virtual RAM, as well as lifting load time performance by a factor of 40x. That’ll let developers stream in far more detailed worlds around a player. In terms of ‘standard’ RAM, the console will pack in a meaty GDDR6.

It’s also likely that the new Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 that is available for pre-order right now and launching November 4 of this year will be the controller for this upcoming console. That could just be wishful thinking, but with the hyperbolic language surrounding this announcement, we would expect nothing less.

Halo Infinite will be a launch title, bringing back the Master Chief, but you wont be wanting for games to play at launch. Xbox Project Scarlett will be capable of three generations of backwards compatibility. So, as well as Scarlett-era games, it’ll also play games from the Xbox One, the Xbox 360, and the very first generation of the Xbox.

Expect to see the Xbox Project Scarlett console launch in the ‘holiday’ window of 2020.
