Another new Xbox Series X/S wireless controller has seemingly leaked ahead of an official announcement.
According to Dealabs member billbil-kun, who has a long-running record of reliably leaking information, the new controller will be called Stormcloud Vapor.
The controller, which had the codename Jemez according to billbil-kun, is set to be released on August 8.
However, they stress that this date may change, “as was the case with certain controllers released this year”.
The controller is also set to be priced at $69.99 / €69.99.
The leaker had previously speculated that it could be a limited edition Forza Motorsport controller, but given how regularly Microsoft has been releasing Xbox controller variations this year there’s every chance the Stormcloud Vapor controller is unrelated to the game, with a separate Forza controller coming nearer to its release on October 10.
Microsoft has already released six new Xbox controller designs in 2023, meaning the Stormcloud Vapor controller will likely be the seventh.
March also saw the release of red and blue editions of the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller.
In May it released a Sunkissed Vibes controller with a peach and pastel blue theme, then in June it released the limited edition Starfield controller.
