#23NewsBulletin – According to Verge, citing a senior executive in the gaming division, Microsoft has stopped all of its Xbox One consoles manufacturing to focus on producing its next-generation consoles.
Microsoft originally discontinued its Xbox One X and digital Xbox One S ahead of the Xbox Series X launch in 2020, according to Verge.
In order to capture a pandemic-driven boom in consumer spending on games, the software giant launched two models of its Xbox in November 2020, Series X, seven years after the debut of the previous version.
However, several industries around the world are facing the effects of unprecedented shortages in semiconductor microchips, causing delivery delays for several products.
The Nikkei business daily reported in November that Nintendo will make 20% fewer Switch games consoles than planned due to a supply shortage.
