(CNN) – Microsoft is back-peddling on a leak that went out on its website on Wednesday.
For a short time — the company’s site indicated its upcoming XBOX Series X console would launch on Thanksgiving.
Microsoft said that was a mistake.
The company said it is not committing to a specific release date for its next-generation console, but confirmed it would launch sometime during the holiday season.
Sony is also planning to launch the Playstation 5 in a similarly non-committal window of this year’s “holiday season.”
Gamers have just a few months left to save up.
Neither company has released a price, but experts believe the video game machines will cost about $500.
