The Verge’s Tom Warren shared an image of what is allegedly a store shipment of the new controllers, with clear instructions to not sell or display the contents before 6 November 2020.

That’s backed up by a screenshot posted to Resetera of what is allegedly the online warranty page for one of the leaked gamepads.

The site lists a 5 November 2021 end date for the Microsoft Limited Warranty. Since that limited warranty by default lasts for one year from purchase, it does look like 6 November is expected to be the first date of sales.

In any case we now know for sure that the Series X will arrive some time in November, though it won’t be joined by its flagship game. Expected launch title Halo Infinite has now been delayed to 2021, putting pressure on Microsoft to persuade gamers to upgrade come the end of the year.
