Halo Infinite Delayed Until 2021, Xbox series X Arrives in November

As such, it'll no longer be an Xbox Series X launch title.

"There will be thousands of games to play, spanning four generations, when Xbox Series X launches globally this November and over 100 optimized for Xbox Series X titles, built to take full advantage of our most powerful console, are planned for this year", stated Xbox Wire Editor in Chief Will Tuttle in an official post on Xbox News.

343 Industries Halo Infinite's release date has been delayed.

The decision to shift our release is the result of multiple factors that have contributed to development challenges, including the ongoing COVID-related impacts affecting us all this year.

Will some college conferences postpone and others proceed?
MA became the second Northeast independent program in the highest tier of NCAA football to cancel the fall season, joining CT . It's all in the effort of extreme caution when it comes to student-athlete safety in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I want to acknowledge the hard work from our team at 343 Industries, who have remained committed to making a great game and finding solutions to development challenges", Chris Lee, studio head for Halo Infinite, said in a statement. The passion and support the community has shown over the years has been incredible and inspiring.

This isn't the first time this year a major title has shifted release dates, as Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part II was delayed indefinitely before finally releasing in June and CD Projekt Red's highly anticipated futuristic role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 had its launch moved back twice, first from a mid-April release to September before having it pushed back once more to its current release date of November 19.

It had been a while since weve heard any significant news regarding the Xbox Series X, Microsoft's highly anticipated next-gen console, besides some information about games that will be available at launch, and some details about backwards compatibility. Halo Infinite will launch with a free-to-play multiplayer component in addition to its premium campaign experience, set in a wider sandbox with a broader scope.
