Xbox Series S, Microsoft's rumored second, cheaper next-gen Xbox, may have been confirmed by a controller packaging leak. The Verge obtained photos of Xbox's next-gen controllers, and the packaging mentions both the confirmed Xbox Series X and the unconfirmed Xbox Series S, which has had a supposed codename in Project Lockhart for quite some time. Twitter user @zakk_exe was able to purchase this new controller on a resale site, and The Verge has verified it is a genuine next-gen controller. At the end of last month, an alleged image of this white Xbox Series X/S controller appeared online, and it's important to note that Microsoft has yet to unveil either a white next-gen console or controller. A recent report suggested that this Xbox Series S reveal would be taking place in August 2020, so news shouldn't be too far away. Xbox Series X, and presumably Xbox Series S, will be released during Holiday 2020, yet we have yet to learn of any release date or price.
