The gaming industry has been no stranger to the global supply chain shortage that’s been going on since mid 2020. Graphics cards, SSDs, consoles, and now even Xbox controllers have fell victim to shortage.

Microsoft has recently confirmed the latter (cheers, IGN), stating that customers worldwide will be hard-pressed to find a new Xbox controller for a while.

Microsoft confirmed the shortage of Xbox controllers in a statement to VGC. The company acknowledged that it’s been “hard finding Xbox Wireless Controllers right now due to supply disruptions.” In the meantime, it’s trying to pacify consumers by stating that it’s “working as fast as possible with our manufacturing and retail partners to improve this.” Based on exactly where you are in the world, you may or may not strike some gold.

For instance, at of the time of writing, the official Xbox Amazon US storefront has listings that indicate controllers won’t be delivered until July 10, July 20, or July 30, depending on the color.
