Xbox Design Lab Goes Temporarily Offline In October For 'Updates'

If you were thinking about ordering a custom Xbox controller later this year, you haven't got long to do so! Microsoft has revealed that the Xbox Design Lab program is temporarily going offline beginning October 14th.

The company says Design Lab is "preparing for its next evolution", and will be disappearing until 2021 "so that we can bring you some updates." No more information has been revealed for now, but we're assuming this is due to the service being enhanced to include the new Xbox Wireless Controller in the future.

You've still got a few more weeks to order a custom controller if you want one though, and keep in mind that although it won't be based on the new controller, it'll still be compatible with the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X.

Are you planning to pick up a Design Lab controller, or are you going to wait it out until 2021? Let us know below.
