Microsoft is no longer making Xbox One games

2023-06-15 18:06 by


Microsoft has moved on from the Xbox One and is no longer creating first-party games for its previous generation of consoles. "We've moved on to Gen 9," says Xbox Game Studios chief Matt Booty, referring to the Xbox Series S / X generation, in an interview with Axios.

The news isn't exactly a surprise considering the Xbox One was released in 2013. But it's still unfortunate for anyone who owns an Xbox One X, which Microsoft released four years later as an upgrade for the Xbox One with more graphics horsepower. One of Microsoft's last major Xbox titles, Halo Infinite, was built for both generations of hardware.

Now Booty says only Microsoft's Minecraft will continue to support the Xbox One. Still, Booty points out Xbox One owners can use their hardware to play current-generation games through the company's cloud-gaming function, which is available on an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership.

It's also possible third-party video game publishers could still release some titles for the decade-old console. For example, Blizzard's recently launched Diablo IV is available for both the Xbox Series X/S and the older Xbox One.
