The Xbox One Elite controller will launch Oct. 27, according to Microsoft's online store.

While the company has not yet officially confirmed the release date for the peripheral, retailers like GameStop are also listing the October date.

The wireless controller will cost $149.99 at launch. Microsoft first gave us our first look at it during E3, where it touted its customization and responsiveness.

A debut trailer for the controller showed off its new d-pad, more sensitive triggers, and overall redesigned look.

An Elite bundle containing both the controller and a Xbox One console with a 1TB solid state hard drive will go on sale on Nov. 3 for $499.

Also hitting stores Oct. 27: the next game in the Halo series, Halo 5: Guardians. One of the biggest games of the season for the publisher, Microsoft debuted a video earlier today showing off the updated multiplayer system in that game.

Earlier this month, the publisher also shared the game's opening cinematic.
