Some slick detective work has been conducted, with the recently leaked Xbox Series S|X controller, which may point to a release date. Intrepid sleuths have put together the details. Let’s hear them out.
First off, according to IGN via ResetEra, the ‘Microsoft Limited Warranty’ for the Xbox Series S|X controller appears to end on November 5, 2021. If history is any indicator, Microsoft’s Limited Warranty usually covers a year from purchase, which would mean a November 5 or November 6, 2020 release date is in the cards.
Furthermore, Tom Warren of The Verge posted the following image below of the controller packaging on Twitter, which clearly states “Do not sell or display before November 6, 2020. This is pretty concrete.
Everything is now pointing to November 6, 2020, unless there is a major change at Microsoft, or this is some elaborate ruse.
Now we just need a price and pre-order date.
