Most of us are now worried about completely different issues, but the representative of the giant from Redmond decided to bring a little smile into the lives of some of us and assured us that this year's premiere of the new console is not endangered.
In the current situation it is hard to believe that anyone can be sure of mass production of new equipment, although the situation in China seems to be slowly returning to normal. Meanwhile, Satya Nadella seems to be convinced that Microsoft will manage to meet the assumed deadline, namely the Holiday 2020 period, which means the time from October to December. It should also be noted that it is rather about the beginning of these ranges, because the company certainly would like that Xbox Series X would be under the Christmas tree of all players, which of course requires the release earlier.
Microsoft's CEO has decided to reassure players that everything is under control and should not worry about the launch of next-gen. This is a really brave assumption, especially considering that the coronavirus pandemic affects all areas of our lives and even the Redmond giant itself was forced to suspend Edge browser updates and optional updates for the Windows operating system, as well as postpone the end of support for the Enterprise edition, Education and IoT Enterprise Windows 10, all because of the transfer of employees to remote work.
Well, contrary to the opinion of several analytical companies, such as the Jefferies Group or DFC, which are convinced that the closure of some Chinese factories and limited capacity in others must have a serious impact on the supply of both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. Well, unless Microsoft's CEO knows something that we don't know (part of the production already completed?) Or is planning to meet the release date, but launching a much smaller than usual number of copies, or at least initially. It is hard to say, but in an interview with CNBC he was convinced that everything is going in the right direction and was asked directly whether they are staying at the set deadlines, he replied: - On the part of suppliers, we are back on the right track.
