Next was a leak on Twitter. A user confirmed he had received an original next-gen Xbox controller from a site called ‘Offer Up’. The controller was white and not the regular black. Furthermore, from the packaging, it was confirmed that Project Lockhart was actually a reality. Xbox is going to release a cheaper version of the Series X.

Now, we have new leaks confirming the release date for Xbox. Another individual got hold of an unreleased controller and posted the video on YouTube. He elaborately unboxes it and even compares it with other controllers.

The leak was posted to ResetEra in the site’s gaming forum by a user named Jawmuncher. The picture showed the owner’s online registered warranty page. Have a look;

It clearly states that the warranty ends on the 5th of November, 2021. Hence, through this, the release date can be worked out. Microsoft Limited Warranty covers up to 1 year from product purchase. This sets the release date on the 6th of November 2020.

What does Xbox have to say?

In a blog post on August 11th, the Xbox Series X release was confirmed for November while Halo: Infinite was delayed. But the dates for either are not yet released. Furthermore, if the leaks are to be believed, November 5th or 6th sounds legible. Also, a point to be considered is that accessories might be released prior to the actual console itself. Rest assured, this Christmas, you know what to gift yourself.
