The information--an internal email for a conference call outlining midnight store activity for upcoming major software (both current and next generation) includes Battlefield 4, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and Call of Duty: Ghosts--was reportedly shared by staff at a marketing company responsible for advertising material and product placement at major US retailer Walmart. While unverified, the document shows a field that lists the Xbox One for Friday, November 8.

No official announcement has been made outlining the upcoming next-generation console's release, and, as such, any date should be treated as rumour until confirmed by the Xbox creator. GameSpot approached Microsoft seeking confirmation of the date, but a spokesperson declined, saying, "Microsoft does not comment on rumour or speculation."

Microsoft has said that the Xbox One will launch this November for $499/€499/£429/A$599.
