Attentive redditors have found a new patent filed by Microsoft back on December 1. It is dedicated to a new controller with resistance, recoil and adaptive triggers. In the drawings, the mechanism is very similar to DualSense:
At the same time, the controller does not have a Share button, which is available on new generation devices.
Users suggested that it is about the documentation for the new Xbox Elite, the third version of which is expected next year for the next generation of Xbox. Once the controller appears, players will have to wait while the developers adapt their games to the features of the new controller.
Do not count on details in the days remaining before the New Year, there will be no big announcements.
