Previously, Microsoft has stated that the Xbox Series X will launch in "Holiday 2020," which is typically between October and December. Yesterday, the company's CFO might have shed a little more light on the console's release window.
Asked by Bloomberg tech news reporter Dina Bass if the Xbox Series X was still on track for the "November Holidays launch," Microsoft CFO Amy Hood said a simple "yes." This comment from Hood would certainly seem to point to the Xbox Series X releasing in November, narrowing down the release window of the console substantially.
It wasn't long before Microsoft issued an official response to the comment from Hood. "We're excited to launch Xbox Series X, which will set a new bar for power, speed, and compatibility when it launches Holiday 2020, alongside Halo Infinite," the company told GameSpot in a statement. "We have nothing further to share at this time."
A November release date for the Xbox Series X would follow the same pattern for the original Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. All three consoles launched in November 2001, 2005, and 2013 respectively, so it'd be pretty par for the course for the Xbox Series X to also release in November.
Although Microsoft is holding a big games showcase for the Xbox Series X later today on July 23, don't expect any news about the console's release date. This showcase is slated to be for first-party games like Halo Infinite specifically, and Microsoft hasn't said anything about console announcements for the event.
