New Xbox is codenamed Durango - report

Crytek dev lets cat out of the bag at London event.

Microsoft's next home console is codenamed Durango, judging by a Tweet from a Crytek developer.

Sean Tracy, a senior technical designer at the Crysis studio, wrote on his Twitter feed earlier today: "Enjoying the Durango developers summit in London. So far, great swag and interesting talks."

The mention adds weight to a Kotaku story from earlier this month that stated that Microsoft's new console is currently being referred to as Durango.

The fact that Tracy has since deleted the Tweet could also be telling.

Trivia fans: Durango is the name of a state in Mexico, a Dodge SUV, a Ford pick-up truck and an Italian Auto GP racing team.
