Yes, the Moto X will be updated to Android L

Motorola confirmed back at the Moto E launch event that its budget handset will be updated to the next major version of Android, but until now there's been nothing explicit on Android L for any other Motorola phones. Motorola's Punit Soni was quick to put one Moto X owner's fears to rest, however, confirming on Google+ that Moto's 2013 flagship will indeed be updated to the next version of Google's OS.

This isn't at all surprising given Motorola's focus on fast updates as a point of differentiation, and its existing commitment to upgrade the much cheaper, less powerful Moto E. Nevertheless, if you were losing sleep over the prospect of being stuck on KitKat, you can now rest easy.

There's no word on when exactly the upgrade will arrive, but considering Motorola beat just about everyone to Android 4.4, you can bet it's aiming towards a fast turnaround.
