According to new information obtained by The Verge, Microsoft Xbox Series X could launch on November 6, 2020. After the Halo Infinite postponement to 2021 and the controller leak for the future Xbox Series S, Microsoft is facing a new leak.
Xbox 2020 will be released in early November
The Xbox Series X could be officially launched on Friday, November 6, 2020. If we knew that Microsoft had planned a launch of its next-gen console for the month of November, the date precise is not yet known.
It is on the boxes of Xbox Series S controllers spotted a few days ago that we can read “Do not sell or display before November 6, 2020”. It did not take more to deduce that the Series X console will be on the shelves this famous Friday, especially since Microsoft has already used orange bands of this style for other products in the past.
For the record, Friday is a sacred day among console manufacturers. The Xbox One was released on Friday, November 22, 2013, the PS4 had preceded it on Friday, November 15, and the Nintendo Switch appeared on Friday, March 3, 2017.
On the other hand, we still do not have a date for the Sony console, we just know that it might be launched before Christmas 2020. Even if Microsoft launches before Sony, Japanese seems to be much more expected by players according to the latest polls. We are talking about 75% of forecast sales for the PS5.
