Xbox One’s launch has been delayed to 2014 in eight European Markets, confirmed for its November launch in 13 other markets, Microsoft announced today.
I guess bad news first: those of you in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, and Switzerland won’t gain access to the Xbox One until 2014. Microsoft promises to get it to you “as soon as possible,” though.
Meanwhile, Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox One will launch in November—as planned—in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom, United States, and New Zealand.
“While we wish we could launch Xbox One simultaneously in these markets, there are many factors that determine the timing of specific market launches,” the Xbox Wire post reads. “This includes work to localize the Xbox One dash, incorporate additional voice and languages, and build partnerships to bring apps and meaningful local content to each country.
“We understand this will be disappointing news for our fans int he impacted countries, and we are doing everything we can to bring Xbox One to you as soon as possible next year.”
