Xbox's Matt Booty Confirms it's Not Making Games for Xbox One Anymore

Must read

With the Xbox Series X/S hitting its third anniversary later this year, Microsoft has officially moved on from the Xbox One and will not be making new first-party games for the eighth-gen console moving forward.

In an interview with Axios, Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty said the company has "moved on to Gen 9," noting that none of Xbox's 23 game studios, including Turn 10 Studios or Double Fine Productions, are working on games that are compatible with the Xbox One. However, support for games like Minecraft is ongoing, according to Booty.

Despite no new first-party games being in the works for the Xbox One, Booty reiterated a previous pledge Xbox made last year, where the Xbox One can still access these new first-party games like Starfield on the console via Xbox Cloud Gaming. "That's how we're going to maintain support," Booty said. While not native versions, if you still have an Xbox One lying around and looking to repurpose it in some capacity, this is a solid alternative.

The news comes less than a week after Xbox held its Games Showcase, where the company shared new information, including updates from several of its first-party developers along with a few third-party reveals.
