Yesterday saw the biggest leak in Xbox history thanks to documents in the FTC v. Microsoft case that were accidentally made public.
The leak included over a hundred documents and files, including internal emails. Among the information made public was the reveal of an all-digital Xbox Series X releasing in 2024. Microsoft’s plans for the next generation of Xbox were also made public, entailing a cloud hybrid console.
Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer posted on social media to address the leaks.
We've seen the conversation around old emails and documents. It is hard to see our team's work shared in this way because so much has changed and there's so much to be excited about right now, and in the future. We will share the real plans when we are ready.

As Spencer alludes to in the post, much of the info is from a few years back, so many details are likely to have changed.
