In case you missed it, Halo Infinite has been delayed into 2021. However, Microsoft later confirmed that the Xbox Series X is set to release this November.
The delay was announced on Twitter with 343 industries Studio Head stating,
“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. I want to acknowledge the hard work from our team at 343 Industries, who have remained committed to making a great game and finding solutions to development challenges. However, it is not sustainable for the well-being of our team or the overall success of the game to ship it this holiday.”
Microsoft later released an official blog post confirming the release of their next generation Xbox Series X console for November,
“We have plenty to keep you busy until Chief arrives: There will be thousands of games to play, spanning four generations, when Xbox Series X launches globally this November and over 100 optimized for Xbox Series X titles, built to take full advantage of our most powerful console, are planned for this year.”
So there you have it. If you were looking forward to Halo Infinite this year on Xbox or PC, you’ll be kept waiting until 2021. Even if you won’t purchase a console, Microsoft made sure to tout their Game Pass, which is available across console and PC, with their xCloud streaming service available on the $15/month Game Pass Ultimate,
“Game Pass delivers a curated library of content across console and PC, including all games from Xbox Game Studios the day they launch, for one low monthly price. Beginning September 15th, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will also be able to play more than 100 games from the cloud on their Android phone or tablet, enabling them to take their console gaming on the go.”
