Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox Series X will launch this November. Although a specific date has not been confirmed, the company has now committed to a month instead of the vague "Holiday 2020" previously announced.

A post over on Xbox Wire that also announced the Halo Infinite delay reads, "We have plenty to keep you busy until Chief arrives: There will be thousands of games to play, spanning four generations, when Xbox Series X launches globally this November."

Although Halo Infinite has been delayed until 2021, Microsoft still states that there will be more than 50 new optimized for Xbox Series X games launching this year, including, "Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Dirt 5, Gears Tactics, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and Watch Dogs: Legion." Microsoft also highlights games currently in development for the Xbox Series X such as The Medium and Scorn, and that more than 40 existing games will be optimized for the next-gen console. The company also further reiterates its stance on backwards compatibility, saying, "thousands of games across four generations" will be playable.

The Xbox Series X will launch this November. No specific date, price or pre-order information has been announced.
