Microsoft has announced it will discontinue production of Inside Xbox in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Xbox Live in EMEA is currently looking at its operating model for the series, which according to Major Nelson “could potentially result in some changes, but we have no news here to share yet.” Xbox Live in Mexico and Japan will continue to produce first-party content for its members via other media outside of the Inside Xbox brand.
