343 Industries’ Halo Infinite may have been delayed into 2021 but Microsoft is surging forward with the Xbox Series X launch. It confirmed on Xbox Wire that the next-gen console would globally launch this November with “thousands of games to play, spanning four generations.” This includes over 100 optimized titles.
Games like Gears 5, Watch Dogs: Legion, Yakuza: Like a Dragon and more were already confirmed to be optimized. However even Gears Tactics, which is still only available on PC, will be available though no release date has been provided for the console version. Other touted features include Direct X raytracing at launch, up to 120 frames per second gameplay, Quick Resume and so on.
The Xbox Series X has been rumored for a while now to launch in November, especially following the controller’s limited warranty being leaked. Microsoft CFO Amy Hood outright confirmed the launch month so it’s probably not the biggest surprise to see an official confirmation. As for when in November it will launch, stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
