Unnamed sources, who are believed to be involved in the development of the next Xbox console have confirmed to a U.K. publication that the new Microsoft console will called Xbox Infinity. Ironically this falls in line with an image that was recently leaked on the website Reddit. What is also interesting is how the Infinity logo is a sideways number 8, which coincides with Windows 8. This may speak to Microsoft’s current drive to bring more synergy across it products, and placing the Xbox brand as a key component in the company’s overall goals for the future.
To be honest with two weeks to go till May 21st when Microsoft will reveal the next Xbox at their compound in Redmond, Washington. More tid-bit releases of information will likely leak out. This may just be part of a viral campaign of Microsoft that starts the ball rolling. Although the name is not official due to Microsoft’s “”We do not comment on rumors or speculation. We are always thinking about what is next for our platform, but we don’t have anything further to share at this time.” There is still a possibility they could go with an entirely different name. Either way May 21st is becoming all the more important for not just Microsoft, but the universe of the game industry.
