Microsoft Readies Xbox Series X Launch During Pandemic

There’s still no official date for launch, but you can expect it to be around 2020 holidays sometime in November.

Taken from BBC … The biggest challenge facing Microsoft and Sony’s next generation consoles – the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 – might not be proving the most powerful or having the best games at launch but the fallout from Covid-19.

Many gamers will have less spare cash to spend. And there has been speculation supply-chain problems caused by the pandemic will lead to manufacturing delays and higher costs.

This was supposed to be the week of the giant E3 games expo, in Los Angeles, a chance to build hype for the launches.

Instead, Xbox will give a first look at some games in development via a streamed event in July.

In the meantime, Xbox chief Phil Spencer discussed some of the issues on his mind with BBC Click. The interview, below, has been edited for brevity and clarity.
