A feature that allows Xbox Live users to identify one another via their real names instead of Gamertags will not be available on the Xbox One when the console launches next month, Microsoft has confirmed.
The feature allows Xbox Live users to attach their real name to accounts and identify one another using them. However, according to a Microsoft representative, this feature has been postponed to allow the team time to perfect other features.
“While real identities continue to be part of our plans for the experience on Xbox One, at launch, customers will continue to search for friends using their Gamertags,” the representative told Kotaku. “Our teams are working hard to deliver a quality experience for Xbox One. This means prioritizing some features and sometimes postponing others for a later update.”
Xbox One is set to release in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, the UK, and the USA on November 22, 2013.
