Microsoft Reportedly Indicates Xbox Series X Release Date Is In November
According to a Bloomberg tech reporter, Microsoft indicated a "November holidays" release.
Microsoft has reportedly indicated that the Xbox Series X release date is in November, according to tech reporter Dina Bass. In an interview with Microsoft CFO Amy Hood, Bass asked if the "new console" was still on track for the "November holidays," to which Hood responded yes. [Update: A Microsoft spokesperson told GameSpot that it has not yet announced an official release date for the console.]

It was in response to a question from me and I said "new console" and "November holidays." Her answer was the single word "yes."— Dina Bass (@dinabass) July 22, 2020
Not entirely explicit, this response indicates that the Xbox Series X release date is sometime in November. Previously, the Xbox Series X has been announced to launch during Holiday 2020, but no specific release date has been officially announced. Back in March, an official product page in some regions listed the console as "Thanksgiving 2020." However, Microsoft said that listing was a mistake. The original Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One released in November of their launch years.
A Microsoft spokesperson told GameSpot, "We're excited to launch Xbox Series X, which will set a new bar for power, speed and compatibility when it launches Holiday 2020, alongside Halo Infinite. We have nothing further to share at this time."
Microsoft will be having its Xbox Games Showcase tomorrow, July 23. News on the Xbox Series X hardware, including a release date, is not expected, as Microsoft has already stated that the showcase will focus exclusively on games.
