E3 2019: Microsoft Teases New Xbox “Scarlet” Console Announcement


Microsoft is no stranger to dropping a cheeky message or hint at a big console announcement, and it seems like there’s another one for E3 2019. Within its daily countdown videos for the Xbox 2019 press conference are RGB color codes for the specific color scarlet–and if you’re not aware, rumors point to the codename “Scarlet(t)” for one of the next-gen Xbox consoles. There are rumors of other Xbox consoles under the codenames “Anaconda” and “Lockhart” as well.

In the “3 Days To E3” video, the background had the text “R 255,” and the next day had “G 36,” and today showed “B 0”–this turns out to be 255, 36, 0. You can see screen caps of this in the tweet below.

In the past, there were hidden messages in pre-E3 videos that teased Project Scorpio, which turned out to be the Xbox One X. And in the lead up to Microsot’s press conference this year, we expected news of new console hardware at the show given that head of Xbox Phil Spencer made mention of it last year.

For all things E3 2019, check out all our coverage of the latest announcements and news; catch up on all the Xbox One games we’ll see at the show, the details on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay, and everything that happened at EA Play.
