Microsoft’s new line of Xbox consoles is very popular. Not everyone who wants a Series X or Series S can buy it. As Microsoft is explaining now, it will probably be so for a while. According to a new statement, the situation will probably improve sometime from April 2021.
Xbox Series X and Series S will remain in short supply for a long time.
Your Xbox console is running out. Microsoft cannot keep up with the production of the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. Demand is much greater than supply.

Until April 2021? This predicament seems to be so for a long time. Buying an Xbox Series X or S still has to face challenges. And maybe until April 2021 or beyond. This is what Xbox CFO Tim Stuart said at the Jefferies Interactive Entertainment Virtual Conference (via: The Verge).
