In this article at

http://web.wichitaeagle.com/content/wichitaeagle/2000/10/22/aviation/boeing1022.htm

I read the part that said:

"She noted that 10 months after Condit was named to head
the 767X program, in December 1989, the plane was
launched as the 777."

What are the chances that the 747X could be more than just another 747?

The 767X grew into something that was completely different to the 767, and was a completely new aircraft. hence earning a new product name, 777. However, the 747X is basically just a medium scale modification of the 747, not a completly new aircraft. More than likely, the X will become 747-500, and the XStretch the 747-600
