A new trademark processed by Microsoft this morning has led to new information about the possible Xbox Scorpio Logo and name. The mysterious modified S could be the biggest clue we’ve received so far. For those of you who don’t know, the Scorpio is the current development name for the next Xbox console.
Microsoft Trade Mark Registration
The trade mark 016801243 – S was filed on 05/06/2017 which would likely rule out any association with the Xbox One S, especially since we’ve never seen this logo before. On the application it has confirmed the trade mark is for:
9 – Computer game software for use with personal computers and video game consoles.
28 – Video game consoles for use with an external display screen or monitor; video game interactive remote control units.
It is very interesting given that the current name is the Xbox Scorpio, however given the history of development names for new consoles, it’s likely that this is just a coincidence. Could the next Xbox be named Xbox S…..
With this being filed so close to E3 2017 it is very likely this is related to the Scorpio. If this is the case it may leave a few of us scratching our heads, could this lead to marketing confusion with the Xbox One S? Either way, we have confidence Microsoft know what they’re doing and certainly wouldn’t have taken the decision lightly. What do you think the official name for the next Xbox will be?
