Halo Infinite delayed into 2021, not coming alongside Xbox Series X

Halo Infinite has been delayed into 2021 and will not ship alongside Microsoft’s next-gen flagship, the Xbox Series X.

“We have made the difficult decision to shift our release to 2021 to ensure the team has adequate time to deliver a Halo game experience that meets our vision,” an update from 343 Industries’ Chris Lee reads.

“The decision to shift our release is the result of multiple factors that have contributed to development challenges, including the ongoing COVID-related impacts affecting us all this year, he continued, adding, “it is not sustainable for the well-being of our team or the overall success of the game to ship it this holiday.”

The news comes at the same time Microsoft has established a November 2020 launch window for the Xbox Series X… and most likely, the Xbox Series S too.

We’ll keep you posted on Halo Infinite and a new release date. The game will head to Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X in 2021.
