Xbox has been pretty public with its console codenames in the past. Durango became Xbox One, Project Scarlett eventually materialized as Xbox Series X, heck, Microsoft even named the Xbox One X launch after its codename: Project Scorpio. Is ‘Project Keystone’ next?
In a Microsoft file datamine by a Twitter user Tero Alhonen, ‘PRODUCT_XBOX_KEYSTONE’ has been discovered. Nothing else was found on the “product”, however, its place in the datamined files is very interesting.
Basically, Keystone sits just below Durango and Scarlett among the files, two other Xbox console codenames that, as mentioned earlier, turned out to be real Xbox systems. Could Keystone be tied to the next Xbox?
Who knows at this point. You might think it’s a little early to start talking about new Xbox systems, but development often begins right after a new console launches. There might also be another “Xbox Series” line in the works, as naming convention suggests there might be more series to come.
Is this the start of a new Xbox console or pure coincidence? Let us know your thoughts.
