After a decent showing at E3 2021 earlier this month, Halo Infinite is still slated for a Holiday 2021 release date/window. According to Xbox head Phil Spencer, they have already narrowed the upcoming game’s release window to a range of several weeks, but they haven’t decided on a specific release date as of yet.
During an interview in a video with Dropped Frames on YouTube, Spencer said:
“We know kind of our range in the 3-4 week range.
We don’t have yet the exact day.
There’s some other things with some other game timing that we’re trying to look at.
We’ll have better clarity over the summer, but this isn’t a months thing this is just down to a few weeks.
Instead of picking this date and having to move it by a week, which at this point would feel like a fail — we don’t want to do that — let’s wait until we’re really solid on what the date is.
But the team is very committed to holiday, we feel good about that.”
Recently, Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries revealed that there will be no loot boxes for the free-to-play multiplayer part of the game. Halo Infinite is slated to launch for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC sometime in Holiday 2021. In the meantime, check out the trailer below:
