Microsoft is committed to launching its next-generation Xbox Series X console in November. The company had previously only confirmed a vague “holiday 2020” release date for the Xbox Series X, but at least we know the month now.
Microsoft is not providing a specific date, but I have recently heard that the first week of November looks set to be the start time for the Xbox Series X. This can certainly pass even further in November with uncertainty about the production of pandemic related and more.
The November launch date for the Xbox Series X is being revealed today as Microsoft and 343 Industries make the difficult decision to delay Halo Infinite by 2021. Microsoft had planned to launch the Xbox Series X and Halo Infinite simultaneously this fall.
Lack of Halo Infinite means there aren’t any big titles for the Xbox Series X later this year. Microsoft is choosing to highlight the Xbox Game Pass, along with “more than 50 new games” starting this year with optimizations for the Xbox Series X. More than 40 existing games will also be optimized for the Xbox X Series, which can include everything from hardware- accelerated DirectX beam tracking, 120fps frame rates, faster load time and faster restart support.
Existing compatible games across the Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One will also run on the Xbox Series X when it launches in November. Now we’re looking forward to hearing exactly when the Xbox Series X will be available, its price, and when people can start presetting the next-generation keyboard.
