Microsoft has discontinued all Xbox One consoles, according to a report from The Verge, to “focus on Xbox Series X/S production,” the company said in a statement Thursday. According to Microsoft, that decision dates back to 2020.
As reported by The Verge, Microsoft has Discontinuing digital Xbox One X and Xbox One S ahead of the launch of the Xbox Series X and Series S in November 2020. It turns out that Microsoft also ended production of the standard Xbox One S that same year.
Xbox head Phil Spencer recently said in a New York Times interview that his company’s current-generation consoles, the Xbox Series X and Series S, are selling faster than any previous Xbox generation. And while the more expensive Xbox Series X is often still hard to find due to high demand, the cheaper Xbox Series S (for $299.99) is still available at US retailers like Amazon and GameStop.
Microsoft’s confirmation that it has discontinued the Xbox One platform across the entire Xbox One platform comes shortly after a report from Bloomberg that said opponent Sony will resume production of PlayStation 4 this year, as the PlayStation 5 supply remains tight. Bloomberg reports that Sony originally planned to end production of its final-generation PlayStation in 2021, but will produce a million more of them in 2022.
