In an announcement that probably most Xbox fans were thinking of but not hoping for, Halo Infinite has now been officially delayed to 2021, citing COVID related reasons that have affected not just 343, but the entire gaming industry and the world as a whole.
Coming from an announcement by 343 Industries Studio Head Chris Lee, it was a tough decision but ultimately done to finish up some more critical work.
Judging from the announcement, it’s a good sign that 343 have listened to player feedback and are looking for ways to further improve the product that will result in an “experience that meets our vision”.
Halo Infinite was supposed to be the flagship title that would accompany the Series X launch in November but with that no longer available, Microsoft will have to rely on its solid backwards compatible lineup and outstanding service in game pass to tow them into the next generation.
In the mean time, you can check out Halo Infinite campaign gameplay that was revealed a few weeks back to satisfy your hunger for more Master Chief.
