Halo Infinite now has a fall 2021 release target, still coming to Xbox One

Halo Infinite

343 Industries has made some Halo Infinite news in the lead-up to the Christmas holiday.

First off, the release window has been narrowed. Studio Head Bonnie Ross writes in a blog post that Infinite is coming next fall. The game was delayed until 2021 earlier this year.

2021 will be a big year for the Halo franchise. As we recently announced, Halo Infinite will release in fall of 2021. I realize the wait has been difficult, and I assure you that the team wants the game in your hands as soon as possible, but they also want to deliver something special…the Halo game you deserve. Thank you for your patience, your understanding, and most importantly your words of support to the team. I cannot express how grateful I am for the Halo community and the encouragement you’ve expressed to us. It has lifted us up and provided us the fuel to keep going. As you saw from the recent blog post, the team is making tremendous progress and is SO eager to show you more.

Meanwhile, Halo Community Manager John Junyszek confirmed on Twitter that the game is still coming to Xbox One. Depending on whether you own an Xbox Series X, that may be either welcome or disappointing news. Some fans are asking that the studio focuses on PC and next-gen, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.
