343 is saving ‘huge’ Halo Infinite announcements for this Summer

How’s this for an announcement of an announcement?

Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries recently revealed their plan to release “monthly, high-level updates” on Halo Infinite‘s developmental progress and sure enough, they made good on their word with a Halo Waypoint blog post on Friday morning that went in-depth on the nearly finished sandbox content of the game (all the of the equipment, armor, vehicles and weapons which the players can utilize) and the news that there are still some “huge” Halo Infinite announcements still to come.

“While we will always strive to inform and delight our community with these updates, this isn’t the place for huge announcements, specific feature deep-dives, or gameplay trailers,” Halo community director Brian Jarrard said in the Halo Waypoint update. “We know you’re all very eager for updated campaign gameplay, a proper multiplayer reveal, public flighting, and many other specific aspects of Halo Infinite. That will all come in due time as large industry events take center stage and the Halo marketing machine kicks into high gear.”

Jarrard noted that the 343 team isn’t committing to a definite date for these “big” Halo Infinite announcements but did reveal that they “have a strong roadmap post-Summer leading up to launch this Fall,” which will include marketing and more considerable reveals to complement Halo Waypoint blog posts.

“June, July, and August typically deliver big moments across the entire games industry so while we’re not committing to anything specific yet, we expect to have more than just Waypoint blogs this Summer,” Jarrard added. “And in full transparency, we’re still actively working across the teams to make sure we have a strong roadmap post-Summer leading up to launch this Fall. Until then, we look forward to going on this monthly journey together and are grateful for your continued support.”

What do you think these “big” Halo Infinite announcements that are being saved for a later time will be? Are you looking forward to these Halo Infinite announcements hopefully sometime this summer? We’ll keep you updated.

Halo Infinite is set to release in Fall 2021 for PC, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One platforms (the game will not be exclusive to this generation’s Xbox Series X|S, as some rumors had previously suggested).

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.
