The Xbox Lockhart is believed to be a lower-powered, lower-priced alternative to the Xbox Series X, with rumours suggesting it may retail under the name of Xbox Series S. No official announcements have been made by Microsoft, but Windows Central has said that it has spoken with developers targeting the console.
The lack of official word from Microsoft itself has led some to believe that the rumours are false, and that the Lockhart is not a real console. This is what led TitleOS to post the images of the Windows OS library files; they prove that Lockhart is certainly an Xbox-related thing, regardless of if the rumours to it being a console are true or not.Last year there were reports that Lockhart is a cheaper, disc-less version of the Xbox Series X. Reports from January spoke of a new AMD chip with an unknown APU that was speculated to be for Lockhart. But despite it being months since those reports, Microsoft has yet to announce anything. With a series of presentations as part of Xbox 20/20 though, if the company does have anything to announce, we could see it as part of those shows.
