The announcement came as part of the first Inside Infinite development update from 343 Industries.
Halo Infinite will arrive late next year, according to a recent announcement from 343 Industries. After being delayed, the new release window for Halo Infinite is Fall 2021.
The game’s creative director, Joseph Staten, made the announcement in a blog post on Tuesday. “Yep, that’s when the game is coming out,” states Staten. “And from now until then, every one of us at 343i and our great partner teams will be building, testing, and polishing an experience we hope all of you love.” The post continues with several other developers from 343i chiming to update fans about various aspects of the game.
As 343 Day draws to a close, we're excited to offer a closer look at Halo Infinite development and share our updated launch window of Fall 2021.

The blog post is the first of many “Inside Infinite” development updates that the developer has planned for the year ahead. According to the update, the team has been working hard to improve the art, graphics, customizations, and live components of Halo Infinite since the release of the Campaign demo back in July. If you’re interested in seeing the progress the developers have made over the last few months, be sure to read through the Inside Infinite December 2020 update over on the official Halo website.
Halo Infinite was initially expected to launch alongside the Xbox Series X last month, but the team announced in August that the game had been delayed to 2021. The new Fall 2021 release window means that we could have the game in hand prior to the holidays.
Halo Infinite will release cross-generation for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/s, and Windows 10 PC. Stay tuned for more Halo Infinite news and updates!
