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.
