Microsoft's previously announced Xbox One family sharing plan is no longer in the works, chief product officer Marc Whitten told sister site CNET in a new interview.

"We won't be delivering that," Whitten said.

The plan was short-lived, having been announced just two weeks ago on June 6. It was to allow players to share their games library with up to 10 family members on any Xbox One.

Xbox boss Don Mattrick alluded to the program's cancellation yesterday during his blog post concerning the Xbox One policy reversal.

"These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc," Mattrick said. "Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold. Also, similar to today, playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray."
