Microsoft has officially announced that the Xbox division has discontinued its Xbox Fitness service, which provided players with and without Kinect sensors with workout sessions and programs for home use.
The announcement was made this Monday as Microsoft Studios officially announced it was abandoning the program that initially launched with the Xbox One in 2013, stating that “Given the service relies on providing you with new and exciting content regularly, Microsoft has given much consideration to the reality updating the service regularly in order to sustain it. Therefore, the decision has been made to scale back our support for Xbox Fitness over the next year.”
The announcement included several details concerning the discontinuation, including the fact that all purchased content will become unavailable as the service shuts down on July 1st, 2017. Until then players will have access to all of their purchased content, though it’s no longer possible to purchase any of these programs.
