Microsoft is less than 24 hours away from unveiling its next-generation Xbox plans at E3, and the company has been hiding secret messages in its own teasers. Twitter users have noticed
that each of Microsoft’s daily E3 countdown videos has a secret code hidden in the left-hand side of the video. The first, from a couple of days ago, has R 255
, followed by G 36
in the second, and B 0
in the latest today. Together that forms the code RGB (255,36,0), the RGB color code for Scarlet.
Rumors have suggested that Microsoft is creating two new consoles under a general “Scarlett” codename, with a high-end console codenamed Anaconda
and an Xbox One S equivalent codenamed Lockhart. It appears Microsoft is ready to talk about its Scarlett plans, as the company is teasing it freely in its E3 videos. Microsoft even confirmed the teaser by providing a free month of Xbox Game Pass to the Twitter user
who discovered the Easter egg.
Microsoft pulled a similar stunt for its Project Scorpio unveil two years ago, where the company detailed what became the Xbox One X hardware.❤❤
