Xbox Live is now being referred to as “Xbox network,” at least on some consoles, in a change that Microsoft has yet to respond to or acknowledge.
Microsoft reporter Tom Warren was among the first to notice the change. The dashboard on Xbox now refers to Xbox Live as the “Xbox network,” prompting speculation that Microsoft might be considering a name change for its online service. GameSpot can confirm having seen this name change as well, though it’s worth noting our system–an Xbox Series X–is enrolled in the Xbox Insider program that receives updates early before they roll out publicly.
It’s immediately noticeable and odd that word “network” is not capitalized. If “Xbox Network” was the new name for Xbox Live, one would imagine the n in network would be capitalized.
