Whenever a new version of Android is announced, everyone is curious whether or not their device will end up getting the update. While it's usually assumed that the latest flagship devices will receive this sort of update, HTC has issued a statement removing all doubt:

We know HTC fans are excited to get their hands on Google's latest version of Android. At this point in time, we can confirm that we have plans to upgrade our HTC One X, HTC One XL and HTC One S to Jelly Bean. Please stay tuned for more updates regarding device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Jelly Bean.

A brand-new high end device is slated to get a bump up in Android version?! Shocker, I know.

In all seriousness, though, this news isn't surprising at all. However, it is good to see HTC take a little initiative and let owners of the aforementioned handsets know that the update will be making its way to their handset.
