How are issues impacted with a project key change?

I need to change a project key and name to reflect a new direction for the team. If I change the project key, will the issue numbers stay the same? Meaning, will issue: ABC-123 update to XYZ-123 or will the number reindex?

The change only affects the key of the issues and project.  The sequence numbers will remain the same.

Yes, Nic has shared the answer. However, please take care of the groovy scripts, plugin configured to the project (hard-coded) and scripts via external applications integrated.
