Microsoft has confirmed it has put "on hold" its previously announced plans to add an over-the-air TV DVR feature to its Xbox One console. The company said it is now concentrating on adding "higher fan-requested gaming experiences" to both the console and Windows 10.
Microsoft first announced its plans for the Xbox One TV DVR feature in August 2015 at Gamescom. At the time, the company said it would launch in North America and in select European markets in 2016, and would require the use of the OTA TV Tuner for the console. In March, it was reported that Microsoft was internally testing this feature.
However, it looks like Microsoft's plans have changed and is focusing on adding gaming features for the Xbox One. According to The Verge, who got an official statement from Microsoft:
"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," revealed a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement to The Verge. "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."
