Official Halo Infinite release date and PC requirements have been confirmed

Halo Infinite release date

After being accidentally leaked on the Microsoft Store, the official Halo Infinite release date and PC requirements are finally here — the flagship title will be hitting the Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC platforms on December 8th. The Halo Infinite release date was confirmed at Thursday’s Gamescom Opening Night Live showcase, which featured a brand-new Season 1 cinematic intro featuring a Spartan supersoldier named Captain Agryna. The video shows Agryna as a teenager on the streets of London, England during the Battle for Earth in 2552 (complete with Big Ben standing in the background). Agryna comes face-to-face with an imposing group of Covenant Jiralhanae troops and is fortunately rescued by the timely intervention of a Spartan team. She later goes on to become a Spartan supersoldier herself.

The official Halo Infinite release date on December 8th marks the first time developer 343 Industries has set a specific release date for the game since its initial delay to 2021 back in August of 2020.

Although Halo Infinite will release on December 8th with its campaign and multiplayer modes ready to go from the jump, 343 Industries recently announced that the campaign co-op and Forge modes would not be available until the game’s second multiplayer season, or at least three months after the main title’s release.

The game’s requirements on the PC were posted up on Steam as well.

Halo Infinite is built for PC,” explains the game’s Steam listing. “From advanced graphics settings, ultrawide/super ultrawide support and triple-key binds to features like dynamic scaling and variable framerates, Halo Infinite is the best Halo experience on PC to date.”

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.
