Microsoft has confirmed that the company is working on a new streaming device codenamed 'Keystone'. Currently, the device runs Xbox Game Pass and its cloud gaming service; however, Microsoft has decided to explore additional iterations of the product.

Here is the company's statement to WindowsCentral...

“Our vision for Xbox Cloud Gaming is unwavering, our goal is to enable people to play the games they want, on the devices they want, anywhere they want. As announced last year, we’ve been working on a game-streaming device, codename Keystone, that could be connected to any TV or monitor without the need for a console," a Microsoft spokesperson stated.

"As part of any technical journey, we are constantly evaluating our efforts, reviewing our learnings, and ensuring we are bringing value to our customers. We have made the decision to pivot away from the current iteration of the Keystone device. We will take our learnings and refocus our efforts on a new approach that will allow us to deliver Xbox Cloud Gaming to more players around the world in the future.”

A low-cost streaming device would allow Microsoft to bring Xbox Game Pass to additional households who aren't able or interested in owning a full-blown console. Presumably, it would also serve as a rival to the Apple TV and Fire TV offering access to streaming services like Netflix and Hulu.
