Xbox Series X Update Fixes 'Console Shutdown' Issues With Certain Games

We've been seeing and hearing occasional reports of games causing the Xbox Series X to crash or even shutdown entirely ever since launch, and now Xbox is implementing a fix for a couple of select games in particular.

This past weekend, an update rolled out to Alpha Skip-Ahead Insiders targeting "titles such as NBA 2K22 and FIFA 22", with the goal to "eliminate console shut downs and improve stability of Xbox Series X consoles".

This build has fixes Eliminating console shut downs and Improved stability of Xbox Series X consoles when playing titles such as NBA 2K22 and FIFA 22.

Given that this update is only currently available to Xbox Insiders, we could be waiting a little while longer until it's released to the public, so you may still have a few issues with these games until that time.

It's good to see Xbox is working hard to remedy these occasional mishaps on Xbox Series X, and hopefully they'll soon be a thing of the past as developers get more acquainted with the unique quirks of the console.
