Microsoft has revealed that more Xbox Series X and S units will be available when the console launches on November 10, following “record-breaking demand” for pre-orders.
The official Xbox Twitter account thanked fans for the excitement on September 22 as pre-orders went live around the world. The tweet notes that those who didn’t manage to secure a successful preorder should “sign up with retailers for updates” as more units will be made available upon launch day, November 10.
We are humbled by the record-breaking demand for Xbox Series X and S. Huge thanks to everyone for the excitement.
If you weren’t successful today be sure to sign up with retailers for updates, and expect more consoles to be available on November 10.

Demand was through the roof when preorders launched, causing havoc at a number of major online US retailers including Best Buy and Amazon, with most retailers now reporting the consoles as sold out. The sales ranking for the Xbox One X also suffered a significant spike on Amazon, suggesting that many users may have mistakenly purchased the current-gen console instead of the next-gen Xbox Series X.
In other Xbox news, Microsoft recently acquired Bethesda in a record-breaking $7.5 billion deal. Check out our video considering whether future Bethesda games like Starfield or The Elder Scrolls VI are going to be Xbox exclusives going forward.
