Report: Xbox Series X Release Date Set, Coming in Thanksgiving 2020

xbox series x release date

While we already know that the Xbox Series X release date falls sometime in “Holiday 2020,” it seems Microsoft has jumped the gun a bit and announced the release date prematurely.

The international Xbox Series X website (via GamesRadar) mentions that the Xbox Series X release date is set for November 26, 2020 – which puts it at the Holiday 2020 window, and on Thanksigiving Day nonetheless! Note that the “Thanksgiving 2020” could very well mean a day or two after or before Thanksgiving Day, so we’re putting a “report” on this story just in case.

Whether the release date sticks to November 26 or not, expect a mob of buyers snagging it — especially with Black Friday that near. Sadly, we’re probably going to see scalpers snatch a few up and resell them at a higher price.

In other Xbox Series X news, Microsoft has revealed the official specs of the next-gen console. You should also know that if you want to expand the Series X’s memory, you’ll have to use Microsoft’s proprietary memory cartridges, which you can see and read about here.
