A series of alleged controller leaks may have revealed a November 6 release date for Xbox Series X and the much-rumoured Xbox Series S. A summary of an unboxing of the alleged Xbox Series S controller was posted to ResetEra by user Jawmuncher, who claims to have acquired a picture from the owner of the controller's online registered warranty page. The 'Microsoft Limited Warranty' for the Xbox Series S controller appears to end on November 5, 2021. Microsoft's Limited Warranty covers a year from purchase, which suggests a November 5 or November 6, 2020 release date.
Xbox Series X may launch on November 6th. A tipster tells me boxes of the new controllers have a do not open date of November 6th on them. These controllers leaked earlier this week https://t.co/oyhlbg2SKo pic.twitter.com/dq096shN7L

Further to that, The Verge's Tom Warren also managed to source an alleged picture of the Xbox Series S controller packaging, which features a sticker noting that the units should not be sold or displayed "before November 6, 2020." November 6, 2020 is technically a full year prior to November 5, 2021, the warranty end date featured above. If both of these pictures are legitimate, the evidence suggests that the next-gen lineup of Xbox consoles will launch on November 6, 2020. Yesterday, Microsoft confirmed a November launch window for the Xbox Series X, which gives these leaks some extra credibility. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=confirmed-xbox-series-x-games&captions=true"] It's worth considering, however, that next-gen Xbox peripherals and accessories may launch before the consoles themselves. Previously, a Microsoft Store listing for Yakuza: Like A Dragon noted the game's launch date as November 13, 2020 – in a separate blog post, Microsoft revealed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will launch "day one" on Xbox Series X. We likely aren't too far away from an official confirmation of Microsoft's next-gen launch plans - even if Xbox Series X's flagship launch game, Halo Infinite, has been delayed into 2021.
