Microsoft was means forward of you….they’ve been engaged on Undertaking Scarlett for a while, and it needs to be prepared in eighteen months.
Microsoft performed a self-congratulatory video in the direction of the top of their convention revealing the code identify in addition to some rehearsed ideas about it. As anticipated, terminologies like “8K” and “Raytracing” had been tossed round. No particular specs got, however it’s speculated to be no less than 4 occasions as highly effective because the XBox One X, and it might probably spit out rendered graphics at a charge of 120 frames per second. Scarlett additionally has a strong state drive, however within the yr of our Lord 2020, it BETTER have a strong state drive.
If Undertaking Scarlett is to actually succeed, we’re gonna want GAMES. Thankfully, Microsoft is sensible sufficient to launch Scarlett with a giant one: Halo 6, or Halo Infinite. And in contrast to earlier console reveals, they didn’t simply present a emblem and provides a promise….they confirmed off cinema footage that’s allegedly created with the engine getting used for Halo Infinite itself.
