The death knell for the Xbox One Kinect sensor has expectedly rung as it has been confirmed that the Xbox One X will not come with a free Kinect adaptor or with the option to get one for free. When the Xbox One S launched it did so without a port for the maligned peripheral though at launch people could get an adaptor with the console for a limited time. That offer has long expired.
Head of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg confirmed that no adaptor would be offered in response to a tweet asking about the situation.
We provided free adapters for a good part of last year following X1S launch, but that program has ended.

So there you have it. Microsoft aren’t working on the Kinect and haven’t for a long time now. Very few games utilise the sensor anyway.
