“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. 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. However, it is not sustainable for the well-being of our team or the overall success of the game to ship it this holiday.”

Deep inside everyone probably saw it coming. As, the gameplay trailer came under a lot of heat for its visual lackings. Even though, Microsoft replied back saying that the demo was of an older build. At the end of the day, it wasn’t convincing enough, given that the game was months away from release. They also stated that COVID-19 has been disruptive too. Same as so many other games of this year.

Halo Infinite getting a delay to 2021 is very dissapointing to any gamer. Additionally, it is supposed to be a spiritual revival. So, Halo Infinite not being a launch title will surely hurt Xbox when it releases in November 2020. In fact the Halo franchise has been a system seller since the og Xbox days and this series is what shot the Xbox brand to the big leagues.

Nevertheless, a Halo game similar to the old glory days has been long overdue. So, if this delay means we get to experience Master Chief at his best, the delay is warmly embraced.
