Earlier this week, Windows Live general manager Brian Hall’s comment about a ‘new Xbox’ during a podcast with Verge seemed to finally confirm that the company was working on next-generation Xbox.

As it turns out, Microsoft has clarified that, Brian Hall was referring to the upcoming dashboard update due out later this year, not a whole new console.

Microsoft Clarifies "New Xbox" Comment 1

According to a statement given to G4, “The comments to ‘The Verge’ were not understood in their intended context,” reads the statement.

“When Brian mentioned a ‘new wave of products,’ he was referring to the full lineup of products coming later this year from Microsoft, including Windows 8, Office, Windows Phone and of course our fall Xbox update which will bring a host of new consumer experiences like Xbox Music, Videos, Games on Windows 8 and Xbox SmartGlass.”

So there you have it. Despite tons of evidence and rumors about the next Xbox, Microsoft is still officially keeping quiet on this subject.
