When will the Xbox Series S launch happen? New report suggests longer wait

The Xbox Series S, the eagerly-anticipated scaled back version of the next-gen Xbox Series X, will be announced by Microsoft in August, according to new reports.

As part of a wider report on Microsoft’s decision not to hold an Xbox 20/20 briefing in June, Eurogamer sources say the company is gearing up to launch the console codenamed Lockhart in August.

Microsoft itself is saying a live stream of some description is still planned for July, but today’s report adds to a growing consensus that the big news might be saved until the eighth month of the year.

The report says the console, which is unlikely to have an optical drive and may max out at 1080p resolution, was originally scheduled to be announced in June, but has now been pushed back.
