The crafting system that has been with the console since it's release in 2012 is still there and it is the default. Classic PC-like crafting was added more recently and can be set by the player through a toggle (Help & Options - Settings - User Interface); but it has never been the default on the console. Sometimes a bug occurs upon updating that arbitrarily changes some of the settings away from the defaults... and this may be what happened in your case. You can quickly correct all the settings by going to Help & Options - Settings - Reset to Defaults.
If Classic Crafting were the default, then resetting to the defaults would turn it on... It does not.
I just checked out all the update notes since Jun and my mind is gone.... it has been blown out of my head and has disintegrated from hence it came...... I can't believe they added classic crafting! I need to jump in there and check all this out.
