“Xbox Series X will be available Holiday 2020 alongside Halo Infinite,” said a Microsoft representative to IGN when we reached out for a statement.
Geoff Keighley also tweeted that, according to his sources, the Xbox Series X release date is unchanged and that there will be no announcement today about the release date.
UPDATE: Sources tell me the Xbox Series X release date is unchanged and still “Holiday 2020.” There is no announcement today about a release date.

An additional statement from another Microsoft spokesperson further clarified that “An Xbox product page in some regions inaccurately listed the launch date for the Xbox Series X as Thanksgiving 2020. We are committed to launching Holiday 2020.”
A Thanksgiving release date is much more specific than Holiday 2020, but it sounds like Xbox is not yet willing to narrow that release window and lock down the Series X release date.
Microsoft did reveal the full Xbox Series X specs earlier this week, which was later followed by Sony revealing the PS5 specs. While we’re starting to learn more and more about the next-gen consoles, a release date for both the Series X and PS5 remains unannounced.
