Speculation ran rampant early Tuesday morning on the next installment in the Halo series, Halo Infinite — with signs pointing towards the game being an Xbox Series X|S and PC exclusive game, and not seeing release on the last generation Xbox One console. The speculation stemmed from both a bug-laden, content-impoverished Cyberpunk 2077 release on last generation consoles and a LinkedIn entry from a 343 Industries developer which had Halo Infinite among the items on the resume — but the Xbox One conspicuously missing from the list of consoles which Halo Infinite would be available for.
Halo community manager John Junyszek was quick to dispel the guesswork on Twitter, where he answered a fan question concerning Halo Infinite on the Xbox One (via Pure Xbox).
He funkyreapercat John confirmed that the game will launch across all originally announced platforms.
Hope this helps!

There you have it: Halo Infinite on the Xbox One is a full go according to John Junyszek himself. In addition, the Xbox One listing of the game has since been added to the aforementioned 343 Industries developer, Halo Infinite UI Art Lead Chad Mirshak’s LinkedIn profile. The LinkedIn overanalysis is real, folks.
Do you think 343 Industries releasing Halo Infinite on the Xbox One is a good idea, so long as they can learn from the mistakes made by CDPR with Cyberpunk 2077 and keep the Xbox One version of the game’s performance and content at serviceable levels? Or should Halo Infinite have been made exclusive to the next-generation Xbox Series X|S and PC platforms? Let us know what you think in the comments.
