A recent leak has given a look at a redesigned Xbox Store, codenamed Mercury, that very well may be the store that we will see on the Xbox Series X. As reported by Thurrott, Twitter user @wincommunity posted the first screenshots of Mercury, which is a store app for Xbox One that is currently running on Windows 10.Thurrott's Brad Sams also got his hands on the app for Windows 10 and showcased Mercury in action, which is pretty far along and allows for purchasing and searching and more. The new store moves the navigation bar to the left side of the screen and the whole app utilizes Microsoft's Fluent Design. There is no indication as to when this redesign would happen, or if the final version will look any different. However, it may be one of the announcements that Microsoft has planned for its Xbox 20/20 series that provides monthly updates on the future of Xbox.
