Next-Gen Xbox Console To Launch In 2026, Leaker Suggests

Xbox Might Be Looking For Head Start!

Story Highlights
  • Reliable leaker Jeff Grubb claims that a new Xbox console is expected to launch in 2026.
  • Grubb is unsure whether it would be an entirely new console or a Pro version of the Series X.
  • The latter is unlikely since Phil Spencer claims no mid-gen refresh is planned.

New rumors about the next Xbox possibly hitting the scene in 2026 have recently surfaced. Reliable sources, like popular leaker Jeff Grubb, known for spot-on information, are dropping hints about it.

Why it matters: If the rumors about a new console are true, it would mean the current generation will only last five years, as the Xbox Series X|S launched in 2020.

Grubb has disclosed that the source who leaked the PS5 Pro specs has provided him with information about the next Xbox console. According to his latest podcast, the next Xbox is coming out as early as 2026.

The details about the console are still up in the air. It remains to be seen whether Microsoft is planning a new Xbox Series X to rival the PS5 Pro, but Grubb seems pretty sure about the information.

Despite the leak coming from a reliable source, some specifics about the release are still not nailed down. The leaker hinted that the all-digital Xbox Series X leaked earlier might get scrapped to speed up the next Xbox launch.

Kepler, another reliable leaker who dropped hints about the PS5 Pro specifications, recently shared information in line with Jeff Grubb’s report. According to the leaker, Xbox will launch its next console sooner than expected.

Documents spilled during the recent court case give us another peek into Microsoft’s big goals for the next-gen Xbox. The papers show they’re aiming for a hybrid gaming setup, blending the strengths of both the device and the cloud to bring super immersive and fresh gaming adventures.

The leak hints Microsoft might be moving away from the usual gaming stuff, putting a spotlight on real-time play and giving creators more power.

Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer’s past comments dubbing the Xbox Series X as a mid-gen console for the current generation throw a curveball into the story, making these revelations even more interesting.
