The next generation of consoles is right around the corner as Microsoft has announced Project Scarlett at its Xbox E3 press conference.

Project Scarlett is “designed, built, and optimized for one thing only – gaming,” said Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox.

The console will run on a new custom-built AMD chip that is four times more powerful than the current Xbox One. The next-gen console will also offer frame rates up to 120 fps and will include a solid-state drive that is designed to load games at a much faster rate compared to previous mechanical hard drives.

One of the launch titles for the console will be Halo: Infinite, which will serve as part three of the “Reclaimer Saga.” Halo: Infinite will focus on Master Chief’s story after the events of Halo: 5 Guardians.
