Microsoft says that it will launch its new Xbox Series X console in November 2020. The announcement was made at the Xbox Wire blog, where the company also revealed that Halo Infinite won’t arrive until 2021. As a result, Microsoft won’t be able to launch the Xbox Series X along with the Halo Infinite game as previously planned.

However, the company promises over 100 games optimized for the Series X will be available this year to take advantage of the features like hardware-accelerated DirectX raytracing, up to 120 fps, quick loading times, and Quick Resume for multiple games, gameplay will look and feel better, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Dirt 5, Gears Tactics, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and Watch Dogs: Legion.

Also, there will be thousands of games to play with backward compatibility, which allows to play games spanning four generations.

While the Xbox Series X is expected to arrive sometime in November, the company is not revealing the exact date, pricing, or when the more affordable Xbox Series S will arrive.
