Microsoft has discontinued production Xbox One WILL console to focus on Xbox Series X/S production.
The news of the discontinuation of Xbox One has been confirmed by Microsoft with The Verge.
The company discontinued the Xbox One X in July 2020, but production of the Xbox One S will continue until the end of the year.
The news comes after a Bloomberg report saying that Sony is continuing to produce its PS4 console although there are plans to end production by the end of last year. It is reported that the company will continue to produce the console due to the shortage of PS5, and that one million units will be produced this year.
Speaking of shortages, there’s still a shortage of Xbox Series X consoles, but there doesn’t seem to be much of a problem buying an Xbox Series S. At least in some places.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer told The Verge after the Series X/S launch in 2020 that Microsoft makes more Xbox Series X consoles than Series S, but also has a steady stream of Series S consoles coming out. present on the market. This is because it can “build more Series WILL [chips] in one [chip] dead space” as it can for Series X.
In December 2021, Xbox Series X/S Sales in the UK has surpassed the one million mark sold and sales have increased by 108% thanks to the increased supply.
Spencer also recently stated that Microsoft has sold more Xbox Series X consoles / WILL than any previous version of Xboxes. Now, it just needs to “meet the needs” of the consumer base.
