Microsoft and 343 Industries have announced that Halo Infinite has been officially delayed until 2021. According to the teams, this is mostly due to multiple reasons, including the COVID 19 pandemic.

My guess is that the underwhelming reception of the game’s debut gameplay video is another reason behind this delay. And, to be honest, this delay is the right move (as long as 343 Industries significantly improves the game’s graphics).
As we’ve already said, that gameplay footage was from the PC version of Halo Infinite. Thus, it will be interesting to see whether or not Halo Infinite PC will also see major visual improvements.
Halo Infinite continues the story of the Master Chief as the third chapter of the Reclaimer Saga. According to the team, this is a direct sequel to Halo 5: Guardian, and will give players more freedom than ever before to explore a sprawling Halo ring.
Stay tuned for more!
