Microsoft has finally revealed when they’ll be releasing the Xbox Series X/S, and various publishers are lining up to make sure their games are launch titles, even if that means changing up previously-announced release dates.

First up, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, originally announced for November 17, will now be coming out on November 10 on all platforms except PlayStation 5 (Sony’s console probably won’t launch until slightly later in the month, so it's not a slight on Ubisoft's part). It's also been confirmed the game will run at 4K/60fps on the XSX.

Meanwhile, Dirt 5 has been delayed somewhat to become an launch title. Dirt 5 launches on current-gen platforms (including PC) on November 6, Xbox Series X/S on November 10, and the PS5…whenever it happens to come out.

Sega already announced it would be the case, but they’ve confirmed Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be a Day 1 Xbox Series title. The game also comes out on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on November 13.

Following today's release date announcements, we wanted to share that Sega of America's one-of-a-kind RPG, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, is coming to Xbox Series S and X on November 10, 2020, day and date with the start of the next generation of gaming hardware.

Update: Watch Dogs: Legion is also getting in on the launch day fun!

Not a bad lineup of stuff to test out your fancy new hardware with! The Xbox Series X/S will launch on November 10. You can get pre-order information, right here.
