Microsoft has announced that it will no longer be developing new games for Xbox One consoles, focusing instead on the current generation of hardware. Matt Booty, Microsoft's game studio chief, confirmed this decision, stating that their teams have moved on to "Gen 9," referring to the current hardware cycle. While ongoing games like Minecraft will continue to receive support on older consoles, no internal teams will be working on new titles for them.

To maintain support for Xbox One Gen 8 users, Microsoft will leverage its streaming cloud technology, allowing them to play Gen 9 games. This approach ensures continued accessibility and availability for Xbox One users.
