Microsoft’s online multiplayer service, Xbox Live, is changing its name to Xbox Network on some consoles. While there has been no response from the Microsoft front, it is possible to see the changed name on some consoles.
The control panel on Xbox is now called Xbox Network, according to The Verge’s correspondent Tom Warren’s Twitter account. This leads to speculation that Microsoft is considering a name change for its online service. The fact that the word network is not capitalized is another notable issue.
Earlier this year, Microsoft announced a significant price increase for Xbox Live Gold, a subsidiary of the company, and drew backlash. Microsoft, meanwhile, announced that it was ending xbox live gold sales for free games, and many people believed that the company wanted to shelve the Live service altogest because it was focused on the future with Xbox Game Pass.
Because microsoft spokesman Larry Hyyb’s YouTube channel name ‘Larry Hryb, Xbox Live’s Major Nelson’ has been changed to ‘Larry Hryb, Xbox’s Major Nelson’ is enough to further speculation that the brand will be shelved.
First launched in November 2002, Xbox Live received its trademark rights as Xbox LIVE™ for the first time. It seems that we will not wait a long time to know if all this will happen and to have more details.
