Halo Infinite release date set for Fall 2021

After a recent public denouncement of a series of fabricated Halo Infinite leaks, 343 Industries has made good on Brian Jarrard, Halo‘s community director’s promise to deliver a year-end update which would reveal more information on the progress of Halo Infinite for the Xbox Series X|S consoles.

According to the official Halo Waypoint website announcement, the Halo Infinite release date is now set for the Fall of 2021. The announcement comes courtesy of Joseph Staten, the game’s creative director.

“I’ve spent the last four months immersing myself back into the Halo universe,” Staten said in the announcement, “and it’s my honor as creative director to help our team ship Halo Infinite in Fall 2021.

“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.”

The announcement goes on to explain some of the process behind the game’s development with a few other members of 343 Industries in question and answer form as well as a look at some new Halo Infinite skins (more recent skins than the Monarch armor coating revealed in October), weapons and an explanation behind the infamous “Craig the Brute” face from the initial Halo Infinite trailer which became an internet meme.

What do you think of the official Halo Infinite release date? Do you feel more confident about the game now that it’s been given an official timetable and we’re no longer left in the dark? Sound off in the comments.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
