Software giant, Microsoft announced that it has originally discontinued the Xbox One and digital Xbox S ahead of the Xbox Series X launch then quietly stopped manufacturing the Xbox One S at the end of 2020, leaving retailers to sell out their remaining stock.
Microsoft senior director of Xbox console product marketing, Cindy Walker in a statement said “To focus on the production of Xbox Series X / S, we stopped production for all Xbox One consoles by the end of 2020.” According to a report from The Verge.
The confirmation came after the report that suggested that Sony had planned to end PS4 production at the end of 2021 but Sony has debunked the report saying PS4 production is still ongoing.
Xbox One was launched in 2013 and is estimated to have sold more than 51 million units worldwide. Interested buyers can still get the Xbox Series S in stock at both Amazon in the UK and Best Buy in the US.
Microsoft is exploring every possible means to meet the demand of its customers and create room for more gamers by introducing software that lets people play Xbox video games on internet-linked televisions without the need for consoles.
