Home » Xbox One DVR feature is dead before arrival

Some sad news for those who take advantage of the TV features on the Xbox One and were hoping Microsoft would transform the device into a complete DVR experience: Microsoft confirms that the DVR feature that was in development has been placed on hold. We’re not sure if this move means the feature will never see the light of day, but it would seem as if it won’t make it to the current Xbox One but instead to a newer device in the future.

Here’s a statement a Microsoft spokesperson made to The Verge:

After careful consideration, we’ve decided to put development of DVR for Over-the-Air TV on hold to focus our attention on launching new, higher fan-requested gaming experiences across Xbox One and Windows 10.

We’re always listening to fan feedback and we look forward to bringing more requested experiences on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Xbox Live this year.

We cannot rule out the possibility of the DVR feature coming to the console at a later date. Chances are, the limitations or overall design of the Xbox One’s architecture did not bode well for a DVR feature, but who knows: the rumored Xbox ‘Scorpio’ could change things.

As it stands right now, Xbox One users need to remove the thought of having DVR functionality on their preferred gaming console and move on for now. We hope the software giant gives a better explanation of why the feature was canned because its statement to The Verge is not good enough from our point of view.

Stay tuned to Microsoft’s Xbox E3 2016 press conference on Monday for the possibility of learning more.
