New Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 delayed until 2018 in U.S.

Looking forward to the new Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10? You might be waiting for a while longer.

Earlier this month, Microsoft unveiled a revised version of its Xbox Wireless Adapter – a USB solution for connecting Xbox One controllers to Windows 10 PCs. Although its core functionality is unchanged, the new adapter comes in at one-third of the size, fixing a common critique of the original shipped back in 2015.

When first announced, Microsoft specified that the new adapter would debut in the U.S. on August 8, 2017, with a staggered rollout across other markets. However, viewing the Microsoft Store, the adapter is now scheduled to release on January 31, 2018 – nearly six months later than the original date. Although this looked to be an arbitrary placeholder, the adapter is suffering confirmed delays in certain locations.

Speaking to Windows Central, a Microsoft representative has confirmed the updated Xbox Wireless Adapter is expected to be available in the U.S. during January 2018. While this date is subject to change, some countries are still set to get the adapter sooner, with launch dates varying between markets.

Going by Microsoft Store listings, it appears Japan will be the first to get the adapter on August 24. Australia and New Zealand are set to receive the device this September, followed by the U.S. and Canada in January. Launch windows for other countries are yet to be announced.

The new Xbox Wireless Adapter will begin at $24.99 in the U.S., with equivalent pricing in other regions. In the meantime, it’s recommended that you keep an eye on your region’s Microsoft Store, for further information on the device going forward.
