Microsoft has confirmed it has discontinued production of two consoles: Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital. The news comes as the company prepares for the launch of the Xbox Series X model later this year.
“As we ramp into the future with Xbox Series X, we’re taking the natural step of stopping production on Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition,” a Microsoft spokesperson told Stevivor. “Xbox One S will continue to be manufactured and sold globally. Gamers can check with their local retailers for more details on Xbox One hardware availability.
“At Xbox, we’re making massive investments to forge the future of gaming—a future that puts the player at the center of the Xbox experience. We continue to build great games for Xbox One,” the spokesperson continued. “We continue to build out Game Pass, now with more than 10 million members across Xbox console and PC. We’re previewing Project xCloud in 15 countries so gamers can play games with their friends on any device. And we’re working hard on the next-generation of console gaming with Xbox Series X—the fastest, most powerful console we’ve ever built which includes backward compatibility with thousands of Xbox games and all Xbox One accessories.”
Microsoft recommends you check with your preferred retailer if you still wish to purchase an Xbox One X.
The move means that the Xbox One S is the only Xbox One model still in production. It will be joined by the Xbox Series X later this year and, if rumours are true, the Xbox Series S, a cheaper model of the next-gen console likely meant to fill the void left by Xbox One X.
