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.
