Microsoft has confirmed it will discontinue the Xbox One X and Xbox One S Digital Edition production “As we ramp into the future with Xbox Series X, we are taking the natural step of stopping production on Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. Xbox One S will continue to be manufactured and sold globally,” the company said in a statement.
Recent reports have shown that Microsoft and Sony’s current-gen consoles have increased demand during the pandemic as Xbox One X and Xbox One S shortages have been recorded. The Xbox One X and Xbox One S Digital will not instantly disappear from store shelves. In addition, Microsoft says gamers can check with retailers for the availability of their current stock.
According to the latest reports, a leaked Microsoft document has revealed that the company’s second next-gen Xbox will be fully revealed in August. Initially, Microsoft planned to unveil the console, codenamed “Lockhart”, in June, but now the tech giant has moved these plans to August.
Project Lockhart, or Xbox Series S, is expected to be a cheaper and less powerful version of the Xbox Series X, unlike Sony’s PS5 Digital Edition, which will be a standard PS5 but without an optical drive.
