Xbox head #Phil Spencer recently took to twitter to discuss the issue about the #Xbox One X release date being delayed. In his post, he said the previously announced November 7 release date is still on and that preparation for the event is still on track. According to AotF, Microsoft announced the release date of the new gaming platform at the recent E3 2017 event and ever since, it received numerous mentions and has been on the news. One of the reasons for this is the rumored delayed release date.

The company has been preparing for this event for a year. Previously coded as Project Scorpio, the all-new Xbox One X console is said to be the counterpart of Sony's PS4 Pro.

The PS4 Pro has been released for quite some time now and while it hasn't made the same impact as the original PS4 console, Sony is confident it will put up their target market soon. That being said, Microsoft is eager to release their latest console, which accounts for the confirmation that the release date of the Xbox One X is in fact, not delayed.

Meanwhile, Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg eased some concern the fans have about the 4K videos for the new platform. Most of them wanted to know whether conversion will be free and he confirmed this through a twitter post that said, "Yes any title you own that adds a 4K update will be done for free.” That means any title that a player has and is being updated to 4K will still be free on the new gaming platform.

Release date and confirmed games

The Xbox One X console is scheduled for release on November 7, 2017, for the amount $499.

It is unclear whether the price has a game bundle, but some of the confirmed games for the new platform include Tom Clancy's "Ghost Recon: Wildlands," "Halo Wars 2" and "ARK: Survival Evolved." Interestingly, the ever popular "Rocket League" game will also join the list as well as 2017's "Subnautica" and "Destiny 2." At least fifty-five games are confirmed to join the list, but this might grow bigger as the launch date nears.
