Microsoft to release refreshed Xbox Series X and S in 2022

Xbox Series S | X Refresh Leak

Microsoft plans to refresh at least one of its consoles in late 2022, according to the report. The Xbox Series S is reportedly given priority over the Xbox Series X. That could be to compete with the PS5 Slim, which is rumored to be coming out soon. Furthermore, Microsoft is rumored to be working on an Xbox Series X refresh, with a release date of 2023 or later.

For the Series S, you can expect a new AMD APU built on the 6nm process as part of the refresh. This decision may allow the company to use more compute units.

Surprisingly, Microsoft does not appear to be planning to phase out the current Xbox Series S and X consoles. Instead, the company is said to be considering lowering the cost of the consoles. According to the Moore's Law Is Dead channel, this is because Microsoft is counting on Game Pass sales to cover the costs.

Furthermore, the upcoming Series S is expected to cost around $350. Furthermore, the current Xbox Series S and X consoles may be reduced in price to $189 and $249, respectively.
