The chips design is pretty much done and dusted at this point for the most part. Just some Q's and T's that need to be done... They do need to do additional QC testing and ramp up production and stockpile components and build out the software ecosystem and work with developers.

Sony advertising the fact it won't be out by 2020 though does give Microsoft a window to beat them to the punch, one reason why the Xbox 360 did so well is because it had such a large window of the entire market to itself, allowing it to gain a foothold.

In saying that... Microsoft and Sony derive their consoles from the same PC technological hardware base (AMD), so they are both stuck to the same technological timeline issues (I.E. Chip development) as each other... If we get an Xbox Two this year, it will be very interesting.

It's done indeed, but it's not available to mass produce until Q3 2020. 

Well Microsoft will have benefit from early release no doubt,  but it will make all Xbox One X adopter disappointed, also if Microsoft  using AMD Navi 20 lite and Zen 2 as well, they will comes at the same time frame as PS5. Navi 10 itself will probably going to be release on the summer and Navi 20 next year. 

PS5 will probably will have navi 20 lite along with Xbox Next , so probably we will ended up seeing the same pattern like with PS4 and Xbox One when it was released. 

Mass production will happen before Q3 of 2020. They need to stockpile and shift components.
Some fabs will only do about 10,000-40,000 wafers a month... Often less on newer nodes like 7nm. - And each wafer you will get about 250~ chips per 300mm wafer.... And that is only if all the chips are usable.

So it will take time to build up millions of units for the launch window.
