The developers behind Halo Infinite have confirmed that they haven’t yet set a release date for the upcoming game.
Halo Infinite was originally planned to launch alongside the Xbox Series X and Series S consoles this November but the game was delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 which forced developers to work from home. It’s thought that fan backlash over the game’s graphics also led developers to delay its release.
The game was pushed to 2021 and since announcing the delay, developer 343 Industries hasn’t provided an update on a future release date until now.
In a new tweet, 343 Industries Community Director Brian Jarrard has addressed rumours that Halo Infinite will be launching Holiday 2021 after several retail listings appeared online displaying the date.
In the tweet, Jarrard shuts down the rumours and states that the team haven’t yet decided on a release date. The tweet reads: “PSA: We haven’t locked on [a] release date for Halo Infinite yet. Anything you see on a retail site is just placeholder/speculation.”
Although the delay came as disappointing news to fans, it allows developers to spend more time ensuring that the game is the best it can be. Microsoft has already confirmed that the final game will include better graphics, polished game systems, and that it will also include free multiplayer.
