"We don't have any plans specific to Xbox consoles in virtual reality or mixed reality", he said. The company previously mentioned its plans for VR on the Xbox One X, aka Project Scorpio, but we never really got to see VR actually running on any Xbox One devices. He went on to say that the PC and not the Xbox is the "best platform" for the virtual experiences. Microsoft had chosen to sit out the early VR craze when Sony jumped aboard with PlayStation VR, nearly certainly in part because the weaker hardware of the Xbox One and One S weren't capable of providing a satisfactory experience. Instead, Microsoft is limited its VR and mixed reality focus to the PC, which it believes is "probably the best platform" for such things. "As it relates to Xbox, no".

The main reason for the move, is to free funds so that Microsoft can bolster the standard experience for players that have already adopted an Xbox One and Xbox One X, spending more on first-party studios than efforts in emerging tech.

There won't be an Xbox equivalent. If there were something in the works, VR-capability would've been one of the selling points of the Xbox One X either E3 last year or this year. Microsoft itself is working with partners on so-called mixed reality headsets, which are basically just VR headsets for PCs. An Oculus Rift or HTC Vive is an expensive proposition as a one-time purchase, but it's a bit easier to stomach if you know it's compatible with multiple pieces of gaming hardware that you already own.

Microsoft is done with virtual reality on the Xbox. With VR growing more slowly than expected, it's not the time to dive headfirst into headsets when Xbox has more pressing problems to focus on.
