It’s another week for those waiting on an Xbox Series X/S restock – here are the retailers to watch from June 21-27.
After an incredible E3 performance by Microsoft and Bethesda, Xbox demand is likely at an all-time high. Let’s recap why fans are excited for the next-gen consoles this week:
First up is the incredible free-to-play Halo Infinite Multiplayer which looks to be the best franchise entry in years. Next, Starfield finally got an in-game trailer and the graphics look out of this world (sorry).
And there was even a surprise reveal for the best-looking Xbox game visually of all time, with Forza Horizon 5!
Thankfully, the Xbox Series X/S shortage is almost over, according to Microsoft! And with another week of drops ahead of us, we’re feeling good about the end of June.

Without further ado, here are the retailers to watch for Xbox Series X/S restocks from June 21-27.
All Xbox Series X/S Restocks June 21-27
GameStop Xbox Series X/S Restock
GameStop Xbox Series X/S Restock: This Week (Rumored)
It was a big week for GameStop last week, as the retailer finally dropped some Xbox Series X/S in-store for customers to buy. Purchasing your next-gen devive in person is certainly preferable to battling scalpers online.
But what’s more, GameStop went on to offer a second, online restock later in the week too. It seems that signing up for GameStop’s PowerUp Rewards Pro membership will net you a better chance at the Xbox restock if it goes live for a second week in a row.
What’s more, it appears that Apple Pay is the best way to checkout your new Xbox Series X/S, with LordOfRestocks on Twitter dubbing the payment method “GameStop’s weakness”.
Best Buy Xbox Series X/S Restock
Best Buy Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: June 24 (Rumored)
After 3 weeks of success, Best Buy was one of the few retailers to let us down this week. However, assuming that the miss was a rare hiccup in supply, Best Buy should be back with another restock on Thursday.
Before this week’s miss, the retailer was beginning to become our most reliable source of Xbox Series X/S consoles. Hopefully, it can return to its former glory in the coming week.
Target Xbox Series X/S Restock
Target Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
There’s great news for those looking to find their Xbox Series X/S at Target. After all, the retailer recently revealed that it’s making MAJOR changes to its Xbox Series X/S restocks.
In case you missed the news, Xbox consoles are no longer getting restock waves at Target stores. Instead, consoles will simply drop when they arrive in stock.
This is an excellent sign that shows we’re truly coming to the end of the Xbox shortage – but consoles are still suffering from heavy demand.
Antonline Xbox Series X/S Restock
Antonline Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: Early This Week (Rumored)
Every week, Antonline drops a small amount of Xbox stock early-to-mid week. On June 14, the online retailer had new Xbox Series X consoles in stock for those who were fast enough on the draw.
Bear in mind, Antonline always sells Xbox Series X/S restocks in bundles, meaning that you’ll be paying a higher price for the console. However, it’s been known to be one of the easiest stores to buy from – and bundles can help stop scalpers from grabbing the Xbox first!
Microsoft Xbox Series X/S Restock
Microsoft Xbox Series X/S Restock: June 22-24 (Rumored)
Buying an Xbox Series X/S from Microsoft itself guarantees a good price and quick shipping, but it surprisingly not the most reliable restocker. There were no Xbox Series X/S in stock last week, which could mean we’re on track for a new drop very soon.
The online store tends to drop its stock early in the week, so keep your eyes peeled for movement on the online store.
Walmart Xbox Series X/S Restock
Walmart Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: June 24 (Rumored)
After 3 weeks without an Xbox Series X/S restock, Walmart finally went live with more consoles last week. If there’s more stock to sell, June 24 is the day it’ll most likely go live.
However, new reports indicate that Walmart could actually be moving away from online restocks.
From what we can see, Walmart is secretly restocking Xbox consoles in its U.S. stores! If you’ve got a local retailer, it may be worth stopping in to see if there’s an Xbox already in stock!
This is a great way to avoid scalpers, although you’ll have to do the legwork. Initial reports indicate that Walmart has already begun stocking certain stores, with new locations added every week.
Amazon Xbox Series X/S Restock
Amazon Xbox Series X/S Restock: June 22
June 21/22 marks Amazon Prime Day, and if there’s one day where an Xbox restock is possible, it’s this one. But while the major retailer is aiming to shift a lot of products in the upcoming sale, we’re not sure how likely it is for the online store to want to pull in thousands of rabid gamers during its biggest event of the year.
UPDATE: Amazon has Xbox Series X/S consoles in stock now for Prime Day!
That’s all we know about the Xbox Series X/S restocks from June 21-27 right now, but be sure to stay tuned for updated information as it arrives.
Bear in mind that if you’re a Windows 10 or Xbox One owner, you can reserve an Xbox Series X/S now!
Just take a look at these new details for Bethesda’s Starfield if you’re not set on buying a next-gen console in time for launch day.
And with an insane line-up of games coming to Xbox Game Pass in 2021 and beyond, it’s an excellent time to be an Xbox fan!
