The statement from 343 studios states that there was not necessarily one factor influencing the decision to postpone the game. The main reason mentioned is of course the corona crisis. This also affected 343 industries and the developer needs more time to finish the game.
It’s quite a blow for Microsoft, which came up with Halo: Infinite as the major launch title of the Xbox Series X. This party is therefore canceled.
The disappointment that drained from the faces of many people after the gameplay reveal of Halo: Infinite will also have weighed in on this decision. The reveal was anything but impressive, mainly because of the quality of the graphics. “If this is next gen …” and “is this it now?” were frequently heard quotes.
For now, fans and other gamers will have to be patient. It remains to be seen when the game will be released now. In any case, the fact is that the game will not be part of the launch package of the Xbox Series X, which will be released in November 2020. There is a chance that at least another half year of patience will have to be shown.
When do you expect Halo: Infinite to hit the market? And if so: will the game look different from the reveal gameplay that was shown? Let us know in the comments.
