A new Xbox Series X console bundle is on the way, that’s at least according to a known industry leaker.
The leaker in question is billbil-kun, though according to their Twitter profile, they're not a leaker of information, but instead a predictor of the future, but only with evidence. Apparently.
The Xbox Series X console bundle is for the upcoming Diablo IV which recently went through an open beta test. With the Diablo series being an Activision Blizzard-owned property and with Microsoft’s takeover of the company edging ever closer an exclusive Diablo IV console bundle does make sense.
However, in the tweet posted by billbil-kun (thanks Reddit), the image used does appear to be a mock-up at this time. Now, this doesn't mean that the bundle isn't legit, it could just mean at the very least official marketing images might not be obtainable at this time.
Billbil-kun does mention in the tweet that they have “no idea about its design” other than the word “Bundle” being referenced. What’s more, it appears that the official title on this console bundle is “Xbox Series X Diablo IV Edition.

No idea about its design but it hasn't the word "Bundle" in its reference
⌛️Announcement date: TBD
⌛️Release date: June 6th, 2023

It’s entirely possible that this could be a limited edition console with a unique design, similar to that of the snazzy 'Xbox Series X Halo Infinite Limited Edition' console. At this time, we do not know if or when the bundle might be announced, but it’s likely to launch alongside Diablo IV on 6 June 2023.
Furthermore, it’s also rumoured to have an RRP of $559.99. The aforementioned 'Xbox Series X Halo Infinite Limited Edition' console had an RRP of £479.99. So if it is a themed console, expect it to be around that price range in the UK.
Hopefully Microsoft and/or Activision Blizzard will confirm this new Xbox Series X console either way in the near future. Diablo IV will be released for PC, PlayStation and Xbox.
