Microsoft believes that the shortage of supplies for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will continue until the second quarter of 2021.
Pre-orders for Xbox Series X / S were released in September and initial shares are sold immediately.. This has left many fans unable to find one of the new consolations to be unveiled on November 10.
Traders are expected to offer from time to time a limited number of cones sold as new stock arrives. Although the availability may strengthen soon.
“I think we will continue to see a shortage of supply as we enter the post-holiday quarter, which is Microsoft’s Q3, according to Q1 calendars,” said Xbox CFO Tim Stuart.
“Then when we get to Q4, everything we offer will continue at full speed into the pre-summer months.” This is where the authority indicates that the offer will appear to harmonize with demand.
“You will come out of the holiday window. We will have an increase in supply in the coming months, what, 4, 5, 6 months. That’s when I really hope that the fulfillment of the need will start, which will be a good thing. ”
Just before the launch last week, Amazon sent a wave of emails. These customers have warned previously ordered Xbox Series X that they may not receive the console before Christmas.
A few days later, Xbox experience and platforms Liz Hamren admitted the lack of concerts at the launch. However he encouraged those who are struggling to find one to continue testing retailers.
“We know that not everyone has been able to get the Xbox Series X | S right now and we work tirelessly with our partners around the world to bring as much comfort as possible to many of you over time. We encourage you to contact your local distributors directly for more information on your market availability, ”he said.
The PlayStation 5 should re-launch in some places last week and is also in short supply.
When it comes to which new console will sell the most units this season, Xbox manager Phil Spencer believes the winner will be determined by the production capacity.
This is because the need for equipment is far from over.
