Yesterday, Microsoft confirmed that Xbox Series X will hit retailer shelves in November. According to current reports, the final date may now have been leaked. We’ll tell you when it should be so far.
In the course of yesterday evening, Microsoft not only admitted that the ambitious science-fiction shooter Halo Infinite will be delayed to the coming year. In addition, the Redmond company narrowed the launch period of the Xbox Series X and pointed out that the next-generation console will find its way into international trade in November this year.
In addition to this announcement, the specific launch date of the Xbox Series X could now have been leaked. This was brought into circulation by The Verge editor Tom Warren.
As Warren reports via Twitter, he received the information that Microsoft had already sent the new Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S controller to selected dealers. There was a note on the corresponding packaging that the controller should not be exhibited or sold before November 6, 2020. Logically, the rumor mill thus provides a confirmation that November 6, 2020, could be the release date of the Xbox Series X console.
Since we are dealing with a Friday here, the date could very well fit. Microsoft itself did not want to comment on or even confirm the current rumors about the launch of the new generation console in the first week of November.
In addition, there is still the question of what price the next-generation console of Microsoft will ultimately be offered at. If specific details should finally emerge, we will of course bring you up to date information immediately.
Xbox Series X may launch on November 6th. A tipster tells me boxes of the new controllers have a do not open date of November 6th on them. These controllers leaked earlier this week https://t.co/oyhlbg2SKo pic.twitter.com/dq096shN7L
