Microsoft quietly shuts down all Xbox One gaming consoles


Microsoft continues to release all of its Xbox One gaming consoles nearly seven years after introducing the Xbox One console. The decision has been taken to focus on the production of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S gaming consoles.

Cindy Walker, senior director of Xbox Console Product Marketing, said in a statement to The Verge, “To focus on Xbox Series X/S production, we have ceased production for all Xbox One consoles through the end of 2020. ”

Almost three years later, in August 2016, it released Xbox One S Gaming and a year later in November 2017, the company released Xbox One X Gaming. , An all-digital version of the Xbox One S arrived in May 2019. A year later in July 2020, Microsoft ceased production of the Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition.

Also, the company had assured that it would continue to manufacture its Xbox One S gaming console.
