Microsoft recently announced Project Scarlett at E3 2019. This project is currently hot news these days and the console is expected to launch next year. 

However, some rumors are currently circulating on the internet regarding Microsoft’s Project Lockhart. According to the rumors, Microsoft has shelved the budget-friendly option Project Lockhart.

This Xbox Console was expected to be released with Project Scarlett. 

An Insider Benji-Sales leaked the news on his Twitter account. 


If this rumor proves to be true, the gaming community is still wondering why Microsoft decided to abandon the project that could have potentially boosted its sales.

Phil Spencer shared some details about Project Scarlett in a recent interview. Some people already knew that Microsoft is going to follow a similar approach.

The tech giant is actively working on Project Scarlett these days. Maybe the company didn’t want to confuse consumers with two options.

If everything goes well, Xbox One X will be a cheaper option and Scarlett is going to be the premium next-generation console. 

Additionally, Reddit users doubt the credibility of this piece of news. According to them, Microsoft didn’t share any details regarding Lockhart at E3. That is why Benji assumed Microsoft is no longer working on Lockhardt.

I’m almost certain this guy doesn’t actually know anything. He just looked at the lack of it being mentioned at E3 and assumed that means it’s cancelled. What many people don’t seem to realize is the name “Scarlett” was always rumored to be the name of the family of consoles. So by only mentioning “Scarlett” at E3, that still includes both Anaconda and Lockhart.

At the time of writing this article, there is no official confirmation from Microsoft. But if it’s true, it remains to be seen if Lockhart will have any impact on project Scarlet.
