It is a fact that Microsoft plans to launch Xbox Series X, its next generation console, in late 2020. But did you know that this was not its plan originally? As reported by a report from a trusted source, the company’s idea was for the Xbox Series X to be released sometime in August.
Brad Sams, a journalist who writes for Thurrott and who has leaked correct information about Xbox, wrote a report on Lockhart or Xbox Series S. In it he noted that the new reports point to this console being announced in August, although he could not verify this .
This led him to mention that, curiously, Microsoft’s plan was to launch the Xbox Series X sometime in August. Later the company was going to complement its offer of consoles with the premiere of Series S in mid-October.
Here’s a fun fact: The original launch plan for Lockhart was to launch it in mid-October. That may not sound like anything surprising, but Anaconda, Series X, was going to debut at the end of August, « said the journalist.
