According to Windows Central Insider Jez Corden, the Xbox One X successor is already being designed at Microsoft. Jez Corden is a reliable source from Windows Central who correctly predicted the Xbox One X back when it was called the Xbox Scorpio and has a great track record of leaks and rumors. Further, he stated that the new Xbox could just be a “refresh” of the Xbox One X and that there are no more console generations as far as Microsoft is concerned. He also states that the new Xbox won’t release so soon, stating that a “2-year window is too early” of a time frame. This would match up for when Sony is expected to release its PlayStation 5 around in 2019 or 2020.
The next Xbox is already being designed.

Take what you may with a grain of salt, but look forward to the Xbox One X release later this year on November 7, 2017.
The Xbox One X is a supped up version of Xbox One which will be released on November 7, 2017. The console was first teased at E3 2016 under the codename “Project Scorpio”, but not much was mentioned after that until Microsoft announced the dev kit for the Xbox One X. The Xbox One X features upgraded hardware that is designed primarily to play games at 4K resolution, and will provide some super-sampling to provide graphical improvements on 1080p high-definition displays similar to that of the PlayStation 4 Pro. The Xbox One X will also provide noticeable performance enhancements for existing Xbox One titles.
Xbox One X’s design is a revision of the Xbox One S hardware, but further streamlined. “It uses a system-on-chip (SoC) known as Scorpio Engine, which incorporates a 2.3 GHz octa-core CPU, and a Radeon GPU with 40 Compute Units clocked at 1172 MHz, generating 6 teraflops of graphical computing performance. It also includes 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM, 9 GB of which is allocated to games. “
Further, the Xbox Games marketing head Aaron Greenberg stated that Xbox One X will have no exclusive titles similar to what PlayStation is doing with the PS4 and PS4 Pro. The general manager of game publishing Shannon Loftis mentioned in a follow-up interview that she was not sure on this point, and exclusivity would be “up to the game development community; what do they want to do.” Phil Spencer, the head of the Xbox Division at Microsoft, also mentioned that Xbox One X’s hardware could support virtual reality, mentioning that especially at a console price point, “having something at six teraflops that will get millions of people buying it is very attractive to some of the VR companies that are out there already, and we’ve architected it such that something will be able to plug right in and work.”
For those eagerly awaiting the Xbox One X, it will be released on November 7, 2017, with a 1 TB model that will be priced at US$499. The Xbox One X has been said to be a competitor to the PlayStation 4 Pro, a hardware update of the PlayStation 4 released in late-2016 that similarly focuses on 4K gaming and improved virtual reality performance, although Phil Spencer relegated in saying that the “PlayStation 4 Pro’s competition is instead the Xbox One S”.
