If in doubt, it’s official, the Xbox Series X coming in November this year, as confirmed by Microsoft itself. Previously it only said it would arrive during the 2020 holiday period, now the date is limited to November, but still without an exact launch day. In contrast, “Halo Inifinite” won’t debut until next year.
“Thousands of games” available is the premise with which the company wanted to mark the launch of its next-generation console. As indicated, it will be compatible with thousands of titles from all four generations of Xbox thanks to the backward compatibility that the console will have.
Among these “thousands of games” indicate that there will be over a hundred that will be optimized for the Xbox Series X with features like Direct X laser tracing hardware accelerated or 120 frames per second, which they already explained in more detail a few weeks ago. This is undoubtedly one of the great advantages of the Xbox Series X over the PS5 during this new generation.
The launch of the console is highlighted by titles such as “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla”, “Dirt 5” or “Watch Dogs: Legion”. But they also point out that will be compatible with Xbox Game Pass games, Microsoft’s video game subscription service. Remember that the Xbox Game Pass will also arrive from September 15 on xCloud, Microsoft’s streaming video game service.
For its part, Sony should also put its PS5 on sale on similar dates. Probably both a week or two before Black Friday. What has not yet been revealed by Microsoft or Sony is the price that their next-generation consoles will have.
‘Halo Infinite’ postponed to 2021
One of lime and another of sand. At the same time that Microsoft confirmed the arrival of the console in November, from its video game studio 343 Industries they announced that postpone the new Halo until 2021. They didn’t give an exact date when the launch will take place.
‘Halo Infinite’ was one of Microsoft’s big bets to support the launch of its new consoleHowever, that will not be possible this time. The 343 Industries team says there are several reasons that prompted them to make this decision, including the current situation caused by COVID-19.
If we go back two decades, the first Halo also came with the first Xbox. In 2001, the console and the video game were released together. “Halo Infinite” will therefore debut 20 years later than the original video game. And it will not only do it on Xbox Series X, but also on Xbox One and Windows 10.
