It’s the end of an era for Microsoft and console players as the Xbox manufacturer confirms that they’ve stopped manufacturing Xbox One S units altogether and are just waiting for the remainder of the units to sell out. The tech giant ceased production of all Xbox One consoles as of December 2020 and are now focusing on the Xbox Series X|S next-gen consoles.
The Xbox One first came out in 2013 followed by several other versions, including the Xbox One S in 2016, the Xbox One X in 2017, and the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition in 2019.
Another Microsoft product that has ceased operations is Halo 3 for the Xbox 360. The servers, which have been online since the iconic shooter came out in 2007, were officially taken offline yesterday.
