Microsoft was hoping to deliver its next-generation Xbox One hardware worldwide upon its release later this year, but, unfortunately, a few of the markets are seeing delays.

According to the company, the console will still ship in November to the United States and United Kingdom, along with Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain and New Zealand this year. However, it will have to wait until 2014 in these markets: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden and Switzerland.

The company stated the reason for the delay involved the localization of dashboard and voice command support, as well as readying the right amount of launch content.

“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 post stated. “This includes work to localize the Xbox One dash, incorporate additional voice languages, and build partnerships to bring apps and meaningful local content to each country.”

It continued, “We understand this will be disappointing news for our fans in the impacted countries, and we are doing everything we can to bring Xbox One to you as soon as possible next year.”
