Microsoft South Africa has issued a statement to IT News Africa stating that the forthcoming launch of the new Xbox One X console in South Africa is being put on hold.

According to the firm, the clearance certification for the Xbox One X to land locally is still in the approval process and has not yet been finalised. Until this has been done, as revealed by the firm, the local arrival date cannot be confirmed for either availability or pre-orders.

“Ensuring that Xbox One X gets into the South African market as close to global release as possible is our main priority. We remain committed to our Xbox fans in South Africa.” said Colin Baumgart, Consumer Director for Microsoft South Africa.

Distributed by Prima Interactive, the Xbox One X will be available – once the clearance certification has been finalised – in select retail outlets. When it comes to pricing, the estimated retail value and confirmation of availability dates will be announced closer to the time of arrival in the country.
