Halo Infinite is coming in December.
Halo Infinite finally has a launch date. It’s Dec. 8, 2021, according to a listing on the Microsoft Store that slipped out earlier on Wednesday. The game’s creative leader, Joseph Staten, confirmed the launch date at Gamescom Opening Night Live. He also stressed that Halo Infinite‘s multiplayer and a campaign would be available the same day.
First announced in summer 2018, Halo infinite was first expected to launch alongside the Xbox Series X launch in November 2020. 343 Industries realized that the situation was not ideal and decided to delay Halo Infinite.
Halo Infinite launches with a multiplayer free-to-play mode and a single-player campaign. However, it will not launch with co-operative campaign multiplayer nor its map-editing Forge modes. Microsoft’s plans for Halo Infinite and a launch of Xbox Game Pass are still unknown. If the company wants to put its flagship in Game Pass’ library, it is unclear.
The sixth chapter of the sprawling space saga will be available for Windows PC, Xbox Series X and Xbox One. Staten stated in a June Xbox Wire post that Halo infinite‘s campaign would reveal Cortana’s fate and introduce “The Weapon,” an artificial intelligence created to stop her.
Staten stated, “Together, the Pilot, Master Chief, as well as the Weapon, embark on an epic adventure to explore Zetahalo, defeat the Banished Forces who control the rings, and uncover even more mysteries along this way,”
