BBC iPlayer will not be available on Xbox One at launch, Microsoft has revealed.

iPlayer has been available on Xbox 360 since March 2012, and was one of the few apps that did not require an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Microsoft has yet to confirm reasons for iPlayer's removal on Xbox One but, in a statement provided to this morning, told fans to "stay tuned" for future announcements.

"At launch Xbox One will have more apps available than when we launched app experience on Xbox 360," said a Microsoft spokesperson. "We are working on a lot of great new and existing entertainment partnerships and will be regularly bringing new apps to Xbox One even faster than we were able to bring to Xbox 360. Stay tuned."

Microsoft announced the full list of apps coming to Xbox One between launch and spring 2014 earlier today.
