Lockhart announcement in August seems pretty late to me. Especially with MS still making limited edition Xbox One X bundles in September for Cyber Punk. A lot of people online seem to be under the impression that this "Series S" doesn't exist. If MS doesn't announce this thing by August, I seriously doubt it's coming this year.

In an interview with executive vice-president of Gaming at Microsoft, Phil Spencer, Bloomberg reports June will "highlight the Xbox platform and services." Aaron Greenberg, general manager, Xbox Games Marketing at Microsoft, also teases the June event, stating "news will be done differently than [an] Inside Xbox show."



The way social media is present today means having system reveals like 6+ months beforehand don't make as much sense as they used to.

You can reveal in August quite easily and launch in November, it's not a big deal. Apple doesn't reveal anything until like a week before launch, this has become the accepted norm.

In the 2000s, pre-Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. etc. it was different.

The Xbox One X Cyberpunk bundle, the last release for the system (as far as I know), is available now. Xbox One X is already having/had it's last hurrah.
