Halo Infinite has been officially postponed to 2021. The official communication arrived directly on Twitter with an official note from 343 Industries signed by the studio director, Chris Lee.
“Today I want to share with the community an important update on the development of Halo Infinite. We made the difficult decision to postpone the release to 2021 to make sure the team has adequate timelines to deliver a Halo gaming experience that matches our vision. The decision to move the launch was the result of several factors that contributed to the development challenges, including the impact of COVID-related effects that affected us all throughout the year. I want to acknowledge the hard work of our team at 343 Industries, who have remained committed to creating a great game and finding solutions to obstacles in development. In any case, it is not sustainable for the well-being of our studio or for the success of the game to be released by the end of the year. We know this will disappoint many of you and we share this sentiment. The passion and support that the community has shown over the years has been incredible and motivating. We wanted nothing more than to play our game together with the community during this holiday. The extra time will allow us to finish the critical work needed to deliver the most ambitious Halo game ever created, with the quality our fans have come to expect. Thanks for the support and for your understanding ”.
Halo Infinite it is therefore postponed to next year, albeit without an official release date. The decision was probably made necessary due to some critical issues that emerged during the last one Xbox Games Showcase where the title, albeit shown with an older build, had shown the side from the point of view of technical quality.
