Xbox Series X Release Date Set For Thanksgiving, Microsoft Website Reveals

Xbox Series X was previously announced to be launching during the Holiday 2020 period, but now we have what appears to be a more precise date: Thanksgiving 2020, which falls on November 26.

That’s according to a minor detail updated on a regional Xbox website; as of this moment, the US version still reads “Holiday 2020.” Microsoft is set to host an Xbox Series X-focused stream as part of its digital GDC replacement event today, so it’s possible more will be shared there. This news comes on the heels of Sony’s tech-centric PS5 specs stream earlier today.

We’re in the process of confirming the news with Microsoft and will report back with any additional information we receive.

Earlier this week, Microsoft revealed a variety of new Xbox Series X details, including the fact that it will use proprietary devices to expand its storage. We also got some info on the new Series X controller, a Gears 5 port, and the system’s specs. Additionally, we got to see its quick resume and faster load times in action.
