Microsoft Discontinues Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition

Xbox One X

Microsoft is official discontinuing the production of its Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital consoles. The company, in a statement to The Verge, stated that “as we ramp into the future with Xbox Series One X, we’re taking the natural step of stopping production on Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition.” That being said, the Xbox One S will remain in production for the foreseeable future.

Farewell, Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition

Xbox One X

It comes as no surprise that Microsoft is looking to halt the production of its Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition consoles. The company is very likely shifting its focus towards producing large amounts of its upcoming Xbox Series X (and perhaps even the Xbox Series S) console to meet demands—which, according to reports, have increased during the COVID-19 pandemic period.

It’s important to note, however, that whilst Microsoft may be looking to discontinue two of its previous consoles, support for the Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition will likely remain for years to come. Additionally, stocks on these consoles will still be plentiful in the coming months from retailers around the world. Plus, for those still in need of a previous generation console, then the Xbox One S will still be produced and made available to the masses.

Xbox Series X

With news surrounding Sony’s plan to produce up to 10 million PlayStation 5 consoles this year, it makes perfect sense for Microsoft to follow suit, at the expense of discontinuing two of its current generation consoles. Then again, if you are in the market for a new Xbox console, we’d suggest you to hold on to your wallets and wait for the next generation consoles to be launched.
