The developers of Halo Infinite have taken to HaloWaypoint to share a development update with the game’s community. The team revealed the decision to push the game back to 2021 to “ensure the team has adequate time to deliver a Halo game experience that meets [the team’s] vision.”
The decision was made as a result of multiple factors and challenges, including the COVID impact.
We know this will be disappointing to many of you and we all share in that sentiment. The passion and support the community has shown over the years has been incredible and inspiring. We wanted nothing more than to play our game with the community this holiday. The extra time will let us finish the critical work necessary to deliver the most ambitious Halo game ever at the quality we know our fans expect.
