Halo Infinite is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated Xbox Series X games of 2021, and it promises to reboot Microsoft’s iconic Halo franchise from the ground up.
We’ve been hands on with Halo Infinite’s campaign, and came away extremely impressed. In our Halo Infinite campaign preview, we said “Halo Infinite’s campaign has the potential to be the greatest entry in the series to date” and that it “captures the very essence of Halo: Combat Evolved and delivers something that the original title never feasibly could – geniune player freedom.”
The new Halo was supposed to be a launch title for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles, but it was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and less than favorable feedback from fans after its gameplay reveal.
After a placeholder date of “Holiday 2021”, which falls between November and early January, we finally know Halo Infinite’s campaign will release on December 8. 2021. 343 Industries made the announcement during Gamescom 2021, and also revealed that a custom Xbox Series X and Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 will be available at launch.
