Xbox Series X Release Officially Set For November

Xbox Series X

Since being revealed last year, the next generation of consoles has always seemed somewhat distant, even as the vague window of ‘Holiday 2020’ only inches closer by the day. The lack of a definitive launch date is likely the biggest contributor, with Microsoft and Sony both keeping such intentions secret for as long as humanly possible. However, it appears at least one side of the next-gen wars has finally fired the first shot as the Xbox Series X is now scheduled to release this November.

Revealed in a new Xbox Wire post, the Series X was mentioned to be on the way to store in November, clarifying the previous release window of Holiday 2020. Further details such as pricing or launch titles were not revealed, but the company was sure to talk up the impressive features to be included with the upcoming system. The launch was re-confirmed to have “over 100 optimized for Xbox Series X titles,” Direct X raytracing, 120 FPS capabilities, as well as the nifty Quick Resume feature.

This big unveiling was made alongside the unfortunate revelation that Halo Infinite would be officially delayed from the Series X launch line-up and would instead release sometime in 2021. Seen by many as Xbox’s helmeted face of next-gen (though, that’s debatable considering the glory of Craig the Brute), Master Chief’s absence surely leaves a large vacancy on the Microsoft console, one that may be very difficult to fill. However, by the looks of valuable services like Game Pass, promising first-party projects, and the endorsement of Lord Gaben himself, the green brand appears to be playing a much longer game with the Xbox Series X.

The Xbox Series X is set to launch this November.
