One of the biggest questions asked in the gaming community is, “When are we going to find out the Xbox Series X release date?” We learned back in December 2019 that the Xbox Series X, once Project Scarlett, will be coming out Holiday 2020, but no other details regarding price, pre-orders, or a specific date were given.
Recently, a new style Xbox Series X / Xbox Series S controller made it into the wild for the first time confirming the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S will come out on or about the same time. A few days later, another new style Xbox controller was found in the wild after a Chicago Best Buy was looted, which confirms that Microsoft has already started shipping stock to retailers. Still, no confirmed Xbox Series X release date announced, until…
Microsoft finally confirmed, or rather, narrowed the release window to a month, November. Taking out Sundays and Thanksgiving, there are 24 days in which they could target as a release date. The most obvious one would be November 27th, also known as Black Friday, known as the busiest shopping day of the year. However, with the global pandemic and social distancing guidelines going on, does a Black Friday release make sense?
Alongside the leak of the Xbox Series X controllers, another leak showing the cartons filled with controllers with a street date label with a strict release date of November 6th, 2020, only 82 days away. Could this be the Xbox Series X release date?
With only 82 days till November 6th, it’s easy to realize that the Xbox Series X is well into production like the PlayStation 5, which has been confirmed through leaked production shots. Being so close to the rumored release date, it’s quite possible we may see a price and release date announcement in the next couple of weeks. If not, it could create a mess of problems for both physical retailers as well as online retailers, as they scramble to place orders to fill pre-orders once secured.
Keep your fingers crossed. When do you think the Xbox Series X release date is and for how much? Let us know in the comments below!
