“Today, I want to share an important Halo Infinite development update with the community. We’ve made the difficult decision to move our release to 2021 to ensure the team has enough time to deliver a Halo gaming experience that matches our vision.
The decision to change our version is the result of multiple factors that have contributed to development challenges, including the continued impacts of COVID that are affecting us all this year. I want to salute the hard work of our team at 343 Industries, who have remained committed to creating a great game and finding solutions to development challenges. However, shipping it on this holiday is not sustainable for the well-being of our team or for the overall success of the game.
We know this will be disappointing for many of you and we all share that sentiment. The passion and support the community has shown over the years has been incredible and inspiring. We wanted nothing more than to play our game with the community on this holiday. The extra time will allow us to complete the critical work necessary to deliver the most ambitious Halo game ever to the quality our fans have come to expect.
Thanks for your support and understanding.
Head of studio, Infinite halo“
I’m as shocked as I’m sure everyone else is. It’s clear that the comments from fans after the Xbox Series 20/20 event had some impact here. As we pointed out previously many had problems with the dull graphics. It’s good to see that 343i takes the time to fix the game, rather than forcing a vacation outing that surely would have been a disaster.
