It would be no surprise for the Xbox Series X to land in stores this November, as this would follow the release schedule for all previous Xbox consoles, including the Xbox One in 2013. 

Officially, however, Microsoft is sticking to its "Holiday 2020" tagline in its marketing for the system for now, but there's every chance a release date could be announced later today. Don't expect any release news tonight either, as the Xbox team has reiterated (opens in new tab) that the Xbox Games Showcase will focus purely on the games that will be coming to the console

In the same call, CEO Satya Nadella also promised that “Xbox Series X will launch this fall with the largest launch lineup for any console ever." 

Here's hoping tonight's show makes good on that commitment with plenty of new reveals for upcoming Xbox Series X games (opens in new tab) beyond Halo Infinite (opens in new tab)
