  • Microsoft has confirmed it is developing an Xbox game streaming device.
  • It could take the form of a Roku-like puck or streaming stick.
  • The device would allow users to access games and the usual streaming media fare.

Updated, May 26, 2022 (04:11 PM ET): Microsoft has confirmed that it is working on a streaming Xbox device that would make it easier for users to access Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Codenamed “Keystone,” Microsoft’s device is believed to be a streaming dongle that could be substantially cheaper than a traditional console. The company has been working on it for some time and recently told Windows Central that it was pivoting away from the current iteration of Keystone in favor of “a new approach.” Microsoft did not provide any additional details, other than to say the change of direction would allow it to deliver Xbox Cloud Gaming to even more players, but at least the statement confirms it is still working on the project.
