Xbox may make a major change to the Quick Resume feature on Xbox Series X | S. When Xbox Series X was released | The S in 2020, it wasn’t a clear leap like the PlayStation 5. Unlike Sony’s console, it had the same user interface, a slightly improved console, and a few other small tweaks, but the biggest changes were mostly within console hardware, so they could be Very powerful. It didn’t have the traditional fan fare for a brand new console with flashy new features and tricks, but there was a really noticeable addition that was kind of a game-changer: Quick Resume. This feature allows players to basically have a queue of games that saves where you left off and you can come back to them later, even if it’s been months and you’ve played other games since then.
It’s a pretty cool feature, but it has its drawbacks. For example, online games like Call of Duty or Battlefield don’t really work with Quick Resume. These are games that look for an online connection and will cut you off from the servers if you are inactive for a long time. When the game is played back up through Quick Resume, it can create problems that force the player to restart the game from scratch, defeating the purpose of the feature. Xbox head Phil Spencer heard this complaint loud and clear from a fan and is now looking into the option to disable Quick Resume.
Good feature you ask, makes sense. We’ll put it on the list of things to look at.

It’s unclear if players will be able to select the games they don’t want to play in Quick Resume or if it will be completely disabled. As of now, it’s not a surefire feature, but it’s something Xbox is looking for. With a very comprehensive overhaul coming to the Xbox user interface in the coming months, perhaps Microsoft will work on including this as part of a larger update.
