According to a new report, Microsoft had allegedly discontinued production of all Xbox One models at the end of 2020.

The report comes via The Verge, who claim that Microsoft ceased production of the Xbox One X and Xbox One S ahead of the launch of the Xbox Series X. Retailers have since been left to sell out their remaining stock, with focus soon shifting entirely on to the Xbox Series X|S.

The report was backed up by a statement from senior director of Xbox console product marketing, Cindy Walker, who said, "To focus on production of Xbox Series X / S, we stopped production for all Xbox One consoles by the end of 2020."

It seems that any players who are looking to get hold of Xbox's last generation consoles only have a short window to do so. Once the remaining stock has been sold, the systems are gone for good.

The news follows the announcement that Sony would be extending the lifespan of the PlayStation 4 due to the shortages surrounding manufacturing of the PlayStation 5. Many fans have still struggled to obtain the latest console due to the shortages, coupled with persistent troubles with scalpers. Sony are reportedly looking to manufacture an additional 1 million PS4s - a sharp contrast to that of Microsoft's decisions.
