When Microsoft revealed the Xbox One last year, television was a major focus for the hardware. The company had high hopes in making the Xbox One a device that gave its users many options when it came to television programming. Not only would the Xbox One double as a pass through device, but Microsoft had big plans for original programming.

Variety is a reporting that the original programming that Microsoft has in the works, is under scrutiny, and their strategy for developing original series for the Xbox One is under reconsideration.

The report comes amid Microsoft announcing that they will be cutting as many as 18,000 jobs globally.

The publication claims that the roster that Microsoft outlined could be “significantly trimmed” along side the cost cutting measures for the company.
