'Xbox No Longer Making Consoles' Begins Trending As Panic Continues

Yesterday, we pointed out that emotions were running wild in response to this week's rumours that various Xbox exclusives could be jumping to PS5, and that's been showing up in some of the trending search terms as well.

In fact, in the last 24 hours, one of the biggest worldwide trends relating to Xbox on Google has been "Xbox no longer making consoles" (or some variation of that), so clearly there's a lot of concern over Xbox's future in hardware.

If you're one of those people who's been searching for something along these lines, the good news is that you don't need to panic yet. In fact, according to Windows Central's Jez Corden, various Xbox hardware has been greenlit recently:

Obviously there's no guarantee any of this hardware is a specific Xbox console, but keep in mind the Xbox leaks from last year suggested a new Series X refresh could be on the way in 2024, and maybe even a Series S refresh as well.

There's also seemingly a new version of the Xbox Series X|S controller heading our way in the near future, so it certainly sounds like there's plenty to look forward to. As for the future beyond this generation? That's still anyone's guess right now, but we'd be very surprised if Xbox didn't have another console in the works to complete against the PS6!

In any case, we'll find out more about Microsoft's "vision for the future of Xbox" at some point next week.

Could you envision a future where Xbox stopped making consoles?! Let us know in the comments.
