The company has not produced an Xbox One since the end of 2020, according to what Cindy Walker, senior director of product marketing for Xbox consoles, told the specialized site The Verge.

Originally, Microsoft stopped production of Xbox One X and S before the Xbox Series X launched in 2020.

The software giant had launched two models of its Xbox Series in November 2020, seven years after the debut of the previous version.

A persistent flea shortage

Several industries around the world are bearing the brunt of an unprecedented shortage of electronic chips, essential for the operation of a multitude of electronic components, including those needed to manufacture video game consoles. This situation is causing a delay in delivery for several products, including cars, smartphones and tablets.

In November 2021, Nintendo had lowered its sales forecast for its Switch console due to these supply problems.

At the same time, Sony, Microsoft’s competitor, is continuing its production of PlayStation 4 (PS4) consoles, which still arouses great interest from gamers. A risky bet in these times of shortage, since demand is strong for the PlayStation 5, released two days apart from the new Xboxes in 2020.
