According to Xbox Game Studio chief

Matt Booty , the in-house game cycle is shifting to ``9th generation'' game consoles, including the Xbox Series X/S, with support for ``Minecraft'' and more. Except for that, there is no team working on games for older generation game consoles such as Xbox One.

Booty says Xbox One can play 9th generation games via the cloud gaming service ' Xbox Cloud Gaming '.

In addition, game developers point out that the need to support the Xbox Series S, the entry machine for the 9th generation game console, is hindering the possibilities of new generation games.
