The latest high profile game delay has hit and this time, it’s impacting the largest exclusive title of next-generation’s launch.
Halo Infinite has been quite the center of discussion lately. There was a lot of discussion/feedback/concern after the campaign gameplay trailer (which led to our favorite new icon in Craig) but that seemed to turn a corner after the announcement that multiplayer would run at 120fps and be free to play. However, as a package it seems 343 Industries wants more time to polish up the next entry in the legendary franchise and it will now launch in 2021 though no specific date was given. Studio Head Chris Lee provided the following announcement:
This obviously isn’t good news for the fall or for the Xbox Series X’s launch, but we have to imagine that launching a mainline Halo game after 5 years in a sub-par state would be worse. So as we seem to say all too often nowadays, this is a shame but we hope it results in a better product in the end and one that Halo fans cherish for years on end.
