Microsoft Poland accidentally leaks mouse and keyboard support for Xbox One

Microsoft Poland has seemingly announced keyboard and mouse support for Xbox One ahead of time.

Though keyboard and mouse support for consoles has always been a controversial topic, Microsoft always maintained that it’s open to the idea. It now looks like Xbox One owners will be getting the feature sooner rather than later.

Microsoft Poland confirmed that mouse and keyboard support is in development in a post that’s since been deleted (via Windows Latest). The Google-translated version is rough, but it gets the point across.

“Some players prefer to conquer the virtual world with a pad in hand. Others, above all, value the precision of the mouse movements. Others, however, can not imagine playing on anything other than a keyboard. Now, owners of Xbox One consoles (including Xbox One S models and the latest Xbox One X) can choose these accessories and decide for themselves what they will use. “PC Master Race”? Thanks to the keyboard support, we can already successfully talk about ‘Xbox Master Race’,” the post said.

Gamerpros captured a screenshot of the message before it was pulled.


As both sites point out, someone may have pushed the button early. Beyond that, it’s not clear how limited this implementation is going to be, so we’ll need to wait for a proper announcement to find out more.
