- Microsoft has filed a trademark for what appears to be a new Xbox Series X logo.
- The logo is simple and to the point, if a little drab.
- Microsoft has yet to confirm that this is indeed the logo for the next-gen console.
While the next-gen consoles certainly promise a substantial leap when it comes to hardware, we can’t say the same for the logos. Fans have unearthed what appears to be a new logo for the Xbox Series X in an official trademark application filed as recently as last Thursday, Apr. 16, by the Microsoft Corporation.
Xbox Series X Logo Surfaces Online
As is so often the case, Xbox buffs on the Xbox Series X Subreddit were the first to come across the logo. The trademark filing lists a dizzying array of products: interactive video game devices, jewelry, calendars, purses, cocktail glasses, and even yo-yos. And, that’s just scratching the service. The filing covers all bases for all-manner of Series X-themed hardware and paraphernalia.
Keeping to the established Xbox branding, a sizeable styled ‘X’ accompanies a vertically slanted ‘Series’ – presumably as a nod to the console’s tower-like design.
Little else stands out, nor does the logo feature any eye-catching flourishes. It’s simple and to the point. Functional, and possibly a little drab, is a good way to describe it.
An Unruly Name
Then again, the Series X name is pretty unruly, and finding a suitable logo is no small feat. Unlike the PlayStation 5, which handily shortens to PS5, the Xbox Series X is harder to tame. The Series X abbreviation is about as good as it gets.
And, more interestingly, the arrangement of the logo allows for Microsoft to easily swap out the X for say an S, further fueling speculation that Xbox will next month unveil the more affordable and less powerful young brother to the Series X, code-named Lockhart.
It’s worth noting that we’ve heard nothing official from Microsoft about the new logo. It may be an alternative that ends up…
