Halo Infinite will feature multiple betas, called “flighting programs” and first appearing on Xbox.
Developer 343 Industries made the confirmation as part of a lengthy post about Halo Infinite, Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection. In it, it was confirmed that Infinite would feature flighting programs, called, “opt-in flights [that] will start small and slowly expand out until release.”
343 confirmed that flighting programs “may come a little bit later for PC players, but we’re treating it as a first-class citizen.”
Alongside the news of betas was a confirmation that Halo Infinite would feature customisation options that would please Halo: Reach fans, and that those who reach rank SR 152 in Halo 5: Guardians “will receive a token of appreciation in Halo Infinite.”
Halo Infinite has been confirmed for a holiday 2020 release on Windows PC and Project Scarlett, Xbox’s next-gen console. It’s unclear if the title will be available on Xbox One.
Correction: We mistakenly wrote “Xbox One” in the original title of this post. At present, it’s not been confirmed Halo Infinite will be available on Microsoft’s current-gen console.
