Xbox recently announced that this week’s Inside Xbox will focus on a first look at next-gen gameplay on the Xbox Series X, including gameplay and more. That adds to today’s announcement of a new “Xbox 20/20” initiative, which comes down to monthly Xbox updates on the upcoming console, Xbox Game Pass, and more.
But it also seems that Xbox has revealed something unexpected: the new start and sequence for the next console.
The video teaser for Inside Xbox begins with the reveal of the Xbox logo and a distinctive sound that is separate from anything previously associated with consoles.
Boot up Xbox 20/20 with a new episode of #InsideXbox this Thursday, May 7 @ 8am PT for a First Look at Xbox Series X gameplay from our global developer partners.

Add to this the fact that posting on social media starts with “boot” and the subtitles on YouTube upload that say “New Xbox Sound” and it looks like this could be the new animation and startup sound for Xbox Series X.
Xbox hasn’t said exactly, but that’s a not insignificant amount of circumstantial evidence.
