A new Xbox One hasn't been built in over a year. Microsoft stopped production at the end of 2020 to turn its focus to the then-new Xbox Series X|S, the company confirmed Thursday.
The Xbox One debuted in 2013. One analyst estimates that more than 51 million Xbox One consoles were sold by mid-2020. Sony's PlayStation 4, which also debuted in 2013, has sold nearly double that number.
All of this is happening within the larger context of pandemic-related supply chain issues, which have delayed both the availability of necessary parts across the tech industry and the delivery of finished products.
