Xbox – How to stop an update on an Xbox One Game


I have recently bought an xbox one. I also bought the game Doom for my xbox one.
After it has installed itself, it wanted to install 58 gigabytes of updates over my network.
How can I stop it updating, and just play the game, how it was on the disk?

Best Answer

To stop an update:

  1. Go to your My games and Apps section on your Xbox
  2. Navigate to the Queue section on the left and find the game being updated on the right (Doom in this case).
  3. Press the Menu button on your controller and select Cancel. This will stop the update process.

Note that I am unsure if you will be able to play the game offline. I'm not sure how physical disc copies of games work, but I believe that in order to play any digitally owned game, they must be kept up to date (I could be wrong).
