Is it a bug or a leak? Microsoft announced yesterday on its website that the Xbox Series X will be available on Thanksgiving this year, but then withdrew it from its website.
The Xbox Series X US website briefly said “appearing on Thanksgiving 2020” – which will be celebrated in the United States on November 26. Shortly thereafter this was removed and replaced with “Holidays 2020”.
Microsoft’s Larry Hryb reports that it was an incorrect launch date. “We want to launch around the 2020 holidays.” That still does not exclude the aforementioned release date. Whether that date was correct and simply should not yet be released, or as Microsoft indicates really incorrect, is not known.
All specifications of the Xbox Series X were unveiled earlier this week. The specs of the PlayStation 5 were also revealed yesterday. As far as is known, both consoles should be available at the end of this year.
An Xbox product page in some regions inaccurately listed the launch date for Xbox Series X as Thanksgiving 2020. We are committed to launching Holiday 2020
