A new Xbox Elite wireless controller may be in the works

According to new reports, and purported leaks out of China, a follow-up to the Xbox One Elite Controller Microsoft revealed at E3 2015 is in the works, and is likely to be unveiled at the premier gaming event this year. However, a lot of players have noted that it's worth the money, with a nice, meaty feel, not to mention a number of items that can be accessorized, like the awesome D-pad.

The second-gen controller will also have three-level Hair Trigger Locks and a three profile switch that could explain the on-board LED lights spied within the leaked image.

Another image posted to Reddit that seems to be pulled from a flagged YouTube video, gives us another look at the new Elite controller, which looks to feature redesigned arm grips.

There also appears to be improvement going into the thumbsticks, with adjustable tension mechanisms for better overall feel. This makes sense, since Microsoft previously filed a patent for an adjustable lock design for its controllers, though it didn't note whether it would be a general improvement for them at the time.

Another image posted to Reddit appears to show the entire controller, with newly designed grip sections.

There's no timeline for when Microsoft may choose to unveil the controller, though Sams speculates development of the product is coming along nicely, with an E3 2018 reveal not entirely out of the question.

When we last looked at the luxurious, £130 Xbox One Elite controller in November 2016, it maintained a 9/10 score.
