In a statement given to media outlet Game Informer, Xbox Live has now been renamed. Check out what Microsoft shared to them below:

Xbox network refers to the underlying Xbox online service, which was updated in the Microsoft Services Agreement. The update from ‘Xbox Live’ to ‘Xbox network’ is intended to distinguish the underlying service from Xbox Live Gold memberships.
