Xbox Scorpio will not come out in August, Microsoft denies rumors

Yesterday, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced Middle-earth: Shadow of War, revealing that the game will be available from August 25 on Xbox One, Project Scorpio, Windows 10, PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro: this means that the new console of the Redmond will hit the market in August?


According to what we have read: Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available for Xbox One, Project Scorpio, Windows 10 PC (Windows Store and Steam), PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro on August 25, 2017, implying that the new console from Microsoft could in fact arrive on August 25th.

Despite the statement released by Warner yesterday is explicit reference to the fact that Middle-earth: Shadow of War will arrive on different platforms (including Scorpio) from August 25th through the official page of Xbox, we read that “the title will be available on Xbox One and Windows 10 from August 22, 2017 [US data]. The title will also be available for Project Scorpio after the launch of the console during the Christmas season.”

Not really, Microsoft has indeed clarified the situation with a post on Xbox Wire, where it has specified that all those who will carry out the pre-order or purchase of a digital copy of Middle-earth: Shadow of War on the Xbox Store and Windows Store can download the game also on Scorpio as soon as the console will be available at the end of 2017.
