Halo Infinite’s release date was confirmed during Gamescom Opening Night Live showcase, according to VGC. After a series of delays and vague release windows, Halo Infinite is set to release December 8th.
Halo Infinite’s release has been highly anticipated since the Xbox Series X|S was announced. Halo, after all, has come to define the Xbox experience.
Even with the delay, it wasn’t certain that the game would end up being a success. While Halo veteran Joseph Staten was hired to get the game back on track, the fact that the game needed this much development support so close to its original release date worried the public.
Infinite revived excitement with an exciting E3 2021 trailer and the multiplayer reveal. It was later announced that the multiplayer would be free-to-play with cross-progression and cross-play and be constantly updated with seasons. There was also a well-received multiplayer beta, but campaign spoilers accidentally leaked as a result.
However, players will soon get their hands on their game to try out the full campaign and multiplayer experience. Co-op campaign and map editor will release post-launch.
