Ever since Phil Spencer hid an Xbox Series S from us (no one knew about it at the time), the shelves in the Microsoft Gaming boss’s room have become special observers. In fact, the presence of a new, small white console has not escaped the eyes of the attentive fans.
First spotted earlier this month in celebration of Fallout’s 25th anniversary, the mysterious console was immediately associated with Xbox Keystone, a device in development designed to allow gamers to enjoy Xbox Cloud Gaming games on televisions and monitors.
Well, the fans got it right! During a recent post on Wall Street Journal Live, Spencer confirmed that that mysterious device was on his shelf it was just an Xbox Keystone prototype. Unfortunately, the executive also added that the works are still in progress and that its launch is several years away. With this clarification, the head of Xbox has also indirectly confirmed the rumors circulated last May, which spoke of a restart of the development of Keystone. Probably, the device that actually arrives on the market will be different from the one that appeared on the shelf.
Meanwhile, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can continue to play via the cloud on iOS and Android mobile devices, Xbox home consoles, PC via browser or app, and Samsung 2022 TVs.
