Microsoft is No Longer Producing Any Xbox One Consoles

Microsoft has ceased manufacturing for all of its Xbox One models, The Verge reports.

The news comes following the revelation that Sony has restarted production of its PlayStation 4 consoles, due to the continuing stock shortages that the PlayStation 5 is facing at retail.

Speaking in a statement to The Verge, senior director of Xbox console product marketing Cindy Walker said “to focus on production of Xbox Series X|S, we stopped production for all Xbox One consoles by the end of 2020.”

Microsoft had previously announced in June 2020 that the Xbox One X and Xbox One All-Digital consoles had both been officially discontinued, although the Xbox One S would continue to be sold as the “go-to” Xbox One console. Now, we've got official confirmation that all Xbox One console manufacturing has ceased, with Microsoft putting all of its focus into producing Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X consoles.

This does make some sense, too, with the cheaper Xbox Series S more easily obtainable for those looking for a cheaper Xbox console, taking the place of the Xbox One S. But this means once retailers supplies of Xbox One consoles run out, you'll need to look to the second-hand market if you want to pick one up.

  • They're also not producing any Series consoles. Bold strategy, let's see how it plays out for them.
  • That has gotta be b.s unless there are still warehouses full of x box ones because i have ZERO interest in the series s but they are always in stock but the series x seem to go within minutes everywhere i live and if i cant get a series x im not interested. Almost seems like very shady trying to force ppl digital only by only having a digital only console constantly available
