Xbox Series X is in Production, France is a Priority Country - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 04 July 2020 / 1,863 Views
Microsoft's next generation console, the Xbox Series X, is currently in production, according to Xbox France director Ina Gelbert who spoke with French Xbox website Xboxygen. France is also a priority country for the console at launch.
"The choice we made on this launch is really to be present in more countries than at the launch of the Xbox One," said Gelbert. "Today I do not see a risk for France, in any case. But if tomorrow, a few days before the launch, there is a huge containment in the world ... that we can not do much.
"In any case in our plan today, we have the units for the launch. France is in the priority countries. Now, will we have enough ... This is always a big question, and this is where we enter into discussions for us, and it is my role, to favor France over to other countries. Show that we have the community, that we have the market, that there are huge expectations around the Xbox Series X in France and that we need units to cover this demand."
"Ah yes," added Gelbert when asked if the console was already in production. "It's a lot of work to launch consoles like that, given the number of components etc. The lines to set up in factories ... There is a lot of work."
The Xbox Series X will launch in Holiday 2020.
