Yikes! Microsoft may have accidentally revealed the release date of the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, as the company shared more information on the planned schedule.
This, via a blog post that details the possible rollout dates of Windows 10 version 2004.
It so happened that a couple of days ago, the software titan updated the Driver Shiproom Schedule for the year 2020. And it marks three kay dates that are reserved for the feature updates — these being the 26th, 27th, and 28th of May.
Meaning, these could be the days when the rollout of this latest version of the OS could finally begin.
The company actually publishes the Driver Shiproom Schedule for manufacturers, in order to ensure that they don’t release drive updates a day before or after the feature updates or the Patch Tuesday updates fly off servers.
Idea being, to avoid any conflicts between the updates and increase their reliability.
This schedule does not necessarily suggest that this will be the final release date. It basically serves as a guide to manufacturers to not release their own driver updates around this time frame. For instance, the 2019 Driver Shiproom Schedule had set aside the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd of May for version 1903.
And the update itself was released on May 21.
Of the three dates listed, any could be used for the May 2020 rollout kickoff. Though the most likely date that could be chosen is probably May 28.
That said, people close to the matter have already hinted that Microsoft wants to release version 2004 in the last week of May. And today’s leaks corroborate this information.
