Pre-orders for the new limited edition Halo Infinite Xbox Series X console have reportedly ended for now, according to the manufacturer.
The first wave of pre orders have already gone live at some of the major retailers.
GameStop put live its first wave on August 31 at 9:30am PT / 12:30pm ET. It seems plenty of users were able to checkout through this restock!
Microsoft Store and Walmart, on the other hand, went live slightly earlier – almost immediately after the console was first revealed. Walmart put live its pre-orders on August 25.
While some customers have been lucky enough to pre-order the new Halo Infinite Xbox Series X, stock has still been very limited.
The controller also had limited stock. Find out why Amazon UK has also been cancelling Halo Infinite Wireless Elite Controller orders.
Halo Infinite Series X Bundle Reportedly Not Landing on Amazon US or GameStop For Now
The new limited edition bundle has been very hard to come by since its reveal a few weeks ago. And unfortunately, it appears the chances of securing a pre-order aren’t going to become much easier. At least for now, anyway.

In response to one user asking when pre-orders will go live on Amazon, The Xbox Team says:
Due to overwhelming demand, preorders for this limited edition Xbox Series X have ended for now. Please check back for announcements about more preorder opportunities in the future.The Xbox Team on Amazon
It’s important to bear in mind that The Xbox Team has the official ‘Manufacturer’ badge. “These badges are given to verified representatives of items listed on Amazon,” its website says.
Not only this, but GameStop has also posted the same message on its website via the ‘MicrosoftOutreachTeam’.
UPDATE: Antonline is confirming that it will have the Limited Edition Halo Xbox Series X for pre-order, despite these new claims.
Please note: More pre-orders are still expected to go live in the future, but imminent restocks don’t seem particularly promising.
As mentioned in our possible Halo Infinite Xbox Series X restocks for this week (September 6-12), the only major retailers left to drop were Amazon, Best Buy, and Antonline.
However, a second wave of pre-orders were apparently due at GameStop again – but based on this new message, that no longer seems to be the case.
Just because pre-orders have “ended for now” at Amazon and GameStop, it doesn’t mean they won’t restock before the console’s launch on November 15. Also, keep an eye out on other retailers too – especially since Best Buy or Antonline haven’t released stock at all yet.
