The Xbox One X is set to launch in November and will become the world’s most powerful console.
Having been backed to sell well for Microsoft, fans are still waiting for the Xbox One X pre order pages to open.
Fans still don’t have a solid release date for when things will change, however, some industry leaders believe that thel Xbox One X’s full launch can only be positive for gaming.
Speaking to Gamespot, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot spoke more on the impact of the new upgraded console and how they hope to get the most out of their latest title running on it, Assassin’s Creed Origins.
“We did a deal with Microsoft on Assassin’s Creed: Origins, which is taking really good advantage of the power of the machine,” Guillemot said.
“We like very much what they are doing because instead of having a Kinect or something this time the industry went after more power for the machine, so more immersion, better AI, and overall better games.
“We like that because it means the industry will grow because the better the experiences, the more people want to have it. We think it has a good potential. If Microsoft is really behind it, it can do well.”
Xbox boss Phil Spencer has said it “won’t be too much longer” until Xbox One X pre-orders are made available.
He also discussed possible launch bundles for the Xbox One X, which has a release date of November 7 and a price of £449.
Replying to a fan on Twitter about when pre-orders will go live, Spencer said: “Our plan is set for this. All approvals are done so now just landing the announce with all the info, won’t be too much longer.”
The tweet from Spencer seems to indicate that Microsoft had been awaiting FCC approval before launching their Xbox One X pre-orders.
The Redmond-based tech giant had previously said the wait for FCC approval had been holding back pre-orders for their upcoming console.
There’s also still a big question mark over Destiny 2 on Xbox One X and what kind of stats will be available.
Speaking to IGN, Bungie’s Mark Noseworthy went as far as to say that the studio team were interested in the console, but made no comment on what the support will be.
“As you can see in the D2 Beta, the PS4 Pro is already supporting dynamic 4K resolution,” Noseworthy commented.
“The Xbox One X ships after D2, so we don’t have any announcements for how we’re supporting it right now but it is something we are interested in. In terms of HDR, we won’t support HDR at D2 console launch.
“We’re really excited…
