Thurrott picked up word that Microsoft is working on a next-gen Xbox console with an expected launch date in 2020. The new generation is codenamed "Scarlett" and it's described as a family of devices. So basically it looks like we can expect multiple Xbox products in 2020.
That date may seem relatively close considering that the Xbox One X launched last year but Microsoft is aggressively moving ahead with hardware in the console space to shake up the industry. But what we don’t know is if this is a brand new set of devices or simply a more ‘powerful’ Xbox One that is again, fully backward compatible with all the content available today.

Considering how much effort Microsoft has put into backward compatibility, I would expect the Scarlett devices to support current gen games but offer more advanced features and align possibly with Microsoft’s upcoming game-streaming services.
