Project Scarlett isn’t the only next-gen console that is up Microsoft’s sleeve. Despite earlier rumors claiming it was canceled, Kotaku’s sources are confident that a lower-cost, disc-less version of Scarlett remains in development. The cheaper console, code-named Lockhart, will succeed the Xbox One S and target 1440p/60 FPS.

What we don’t know—and what likely isn’t finalized yet—is how the pricing will shake out. But it’s easiest to think of Anaconda as a successor to the Xbox One X and Lockhart as a successor to the Xbox One S, with a similar performance disparity. Game developers will be expected to support both Anaconda and Lockhart, which some are worried might hamper their ambitions for next-gen games in the coming years.
