Microsoft: Exclusive Dolby Vision and Atmos for Xbox was a mistake

Xbox Series X and S consoles won’t get exclusive Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision for two years anyway. That’s what Microsoft says. According to the company, this was accidentally mistaken in a blog post on the French-language Xbox site. The consoles do get Dolby Atmos and Vision, but not exclusively.

Microsoft says in a statement told The Verge editor Tom Warren that the blog post, which has since been taken offline, was inadvertently published by a local Xbox team and contained inaccurate information about the exclusivity of Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision on the Xbox Series X and S. Microsoft says there are no exclusive deals on the technology on the consoles.

Microsoft is a partner of Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision and both consoles have support for these standards. Two days ago, the French-language Xbox site stated that Dolby Vision and Atmos would be exclusive to Xbox consoles for two years. Dolby Vision is coming to Xbox Series consoles this year. Xbox Wireless Headset owners can activate a Dolby Atmos license for free until September 30, according to Microsoft.
