This emerged, among other things, from a report published by the online magazine Neowin. Just a few days ago we reported on the so-called logout phase for Windows 11 22H2, codenamed Sun Valley 2. It was said that Microsoft was planning to sign on May 20 and would use build number 22621 as a basis. Now the well-known leaker WalkingCat has started another rumor on Twitter: According to this, Windows 11 22H2 or Sun Valley 2 (SV2) will reach “final manufacturing release” status, or RTM for short, on May 24.
While this RTM status isn’t as important as it once was, it’s a traditional sign that development is complete. May 24 as a possible date for the status of RTM is an important date. On this day, Microsoft begins broadcasting this year’s Build Developer Conference. That would, of course, be an ideal starting point if Microsoft could announce the final update that day. Since it wasn’t long until then, we’ll know soon if the rumors are true.
When can Windows 11 start 22H2?
However, the early RTM status doesn’t say anything about the planned delivery date for Windows 11 users. It’s still currently assumed that Microsoft has planned to start in the second half of the year, and tend to be more in the fall, most likely in October. However, it is still not entirely clear when that will be yet. There have been no announcements yet from Redmond, which must be submitted shortly before the actual start date.
