US Patent Application Publication has published Microsoft’s patents on the development of new improvements for the Xbox controller on December 6, 2018. The patents tell in detail about the future Xbox One controller with minor trigger changes.

Forty-four sheets (in 2 documents in total) of various information gives us a clear understanding, that new controller features will serve to improve trigger’s feedback for different user’s actions. It means that game developers could adjust triggers to serve multiple purposes. Moreover, the Microsoft company’s plans include the introduction of the independent localized vibrations on each trigger.  With innovations in the filling of the controller, you can feel the simulation of a wide range of sensations. For example, it can imitate the vibration of various guns and weapons. The force-feedback motor also could stop pressing the trigger by the player or return the trigger to the fully extended position when the player removes the finger. 

If you want to know more detailed information, see the original documents here and here.

Remember that the patents indicated only include designs, not the final type of controller. So, we could find out what new features the future generation of Xbox controllers will acquire along with the expected new line of consoles only in time.

For now, let's discuss in the comments down below how the introduction of new options in controllers will affect the games.
