Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox (Xbox Infinity)

Speculation abounds about the name of Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox, set to be revealed on May 21st. Will it be called Xbox 720? How about its codename, Durango? Will it be called just Xbox? Or how about Xbox Infinity?
According to sources speaking with The International Business Times, it’s the latter moniker – Xbox Infinity – that’s the name of Microsoft’s third console. “Sources related to development of the new Xbox have confirmed to IBTimes UK that the console… will be called Infinity,” the article states.
The article also states that developers have next Xbox development kits, a given considering the console is likely to launch in fewer than six months.
While this information is still unconfirmed by Microsoft – it’s unlikely we’ll have any solid confirmation before the 21st – rumors have long swirled that the next Xbox may be called Loop, or perhaps even Fusion. It may even be called Xbox 8, likely in reference to the Windows 8 operating system.
We reached out to Microsoft for comment and a representative simply told us "we’re excited to share more about the new generation of games, TV and entertainment on May 21, but have nothing further to share at this time.”
In the meantime, speculate away in the comments below, and be sure to join us here at IGN on May 21st for a next Xbox extravaganza.
