Crytek attending the Durango developers summit in London

Sean Tracy, a technical designer for Crytek, tweeted the news that he’s attending the Durango summit in London. Sadly, the tweet has since been removed.

Supposedly, Durango is the codename for Microsoft’s next Xbox.

No word on whether this is actually a summit for the new Xbox, or if the codename refers to the city of Durango, Colorado, one of Mexico’s 31 states, or even the SUV from Dodge.

Project Natal, which was named after the Brazillian city, ended up being Kinect.

Durango was rumored to be the next Xbox console’s codename by Kotaku earlier in the month, with various sources also hosting the news.

However, Microsoft is not expected to announce anything pertaining to its next console until at least 2013.

We’ll keep an eye on things for you, but it’s sounding more likely as many developers have been posting job openings for “next-gen” and “future-gen” systems for months on end.

Lionhead and Bethesda are just two of the latest.
