Halo Infinite release date set for the second half of 2021

"Fall 2021" in North America, to be precise.

Halo Infinite was originally supposed to launch with the Xbox Series S & X, but was delayed for fine tuning. Today, developer 343 Industries has confirmed we can expect the shooter in the second half of 2021.

343’s Joseph Staten took to the Halo Waypoint blog with the new release window of “Fall 2021”.

“It’s my honor as creative director to help our team ship Halo Infinite in Fall 2021,” Staten wrote. “Yep, that’s when the game is coming out. And from now until then, every one of us at 343i and our great partner teams will be building, testing, and polishing an experience we hope all of you love.

“I joined 343i right as the team was wrestling with feedback from the July campaign demo,” he continued. “This discussion boiled down to one fundamental truth: we needed more time to do things right. That included pushing hard in the Fall, giving the team time to recharge over the Holidays, and then coming back in January to finish the game at a healthy place” to keep the verbs consistent.”

“Fall 2021” aligns with a time period between September and December of next year. We’ll keep you posted as a more specific release date is locked in.

Halo Infinite is planned for release on Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series S & X.
