The original controller is still quite popular with gamers, especially those enjoy racing games. The controller is known for its highly customizable build, where users can change thumbsticks, adjust weight and allowing the user to increase accuracy, speed, and grip.

A post on the Chinese website Baidu (translated via ResetEra) reportedly outs Microsoft’s new Xbox Elite Controller 2.0, revealing some new features that the leaker has claimed will be introduced to the new controller. The features are listed below:

Xbox Elite Controller 2.0: Rumored Features

  • Rechargeable batteries.
  • USB Type-C.
  • Bluetooth on Win10.
  • 3-level Hair Trigger locks.
  • 3-Profile Switch.
  • Longer key-travel for Paddles.

The controller apparently makes use of modern technologies like USB Type-C, Bluetooth support for Windows 10, which the Xbox One S controller also has and doesn’t force the user to buy an additional wireless dongle. Higher level hair trigger locks and profile switches allowing various games to have different control schemes and configurations, and for the people that make use of the racing-related features, the paddles have longer key travel, allowing or at least promising a much more immersive feel.
