Microsoft’s Xbox One was set to launch in China on September 23rd, but it seems the users may have to wait a little longer as the company has delayed the launch of the console.
Microsoft didn’t reveal any exact launch date, but said they are making “strong and steady progress” and need more time to make sure it can deliver the best gaming experience to Chinese fans.
Microsoft announced late Friday that “despite strong and steady progress, we are going to need more a bit more time to deliver the best experiences possible for our fans in China.”
“At Xbox, we pride ourselves on delivering first rate gaming and entertainment experiences and to allow us to deliver on that promise we need to reschedule the launch of Xbox One,” Microsoft said in a statement. “Working with our partner, BesTV, we look forward to launching in China by the end of this year.”
The company was also taking pre-orders a while a back. Microsoft said those customers who pre-ordered the console will be first to receive it when it’s officially available.
The company is still holding an event in Shanghai at the Oriental Pearl Tower with fans and partners on Sept. 22 where they intend to give away 100 consoles to the attendees — which will ship when it will launch in China.
