Since E3 2019, Xbox fans have been wanting to know about the name of Project Scarlett but according to Spencer, we will not be hearing it anytime soon.

We can expect to hear about the official name for Xbox Scarlett when it is physically shown off to the public. That we can expect to happen at E3 2020 maybe sometime before.
Furthermore, Phil Spencer is not ready yet to talk about Xbox Scarlett’s price. However, the good news is that the company has a price in mind and Spencer says that they will reveal it soon. If the rumors are to believed, the Xbox Scarlett cost will be around $500.
We’ll get the price out as soon as we can so that people can make those decisions, Spencer said during a live stream on Mixer.
