When asked about Halo’s reveal at E3 2021 in a recent podcast, Grubb clarified he doesn’t know how fans will react to it. He believes that Microsoft’s priority is satisfying the old fans first, and then attract new audience.

In a nutshell, this means that Xbox’s games showcase at E3 2021 might focus on Halo Infinite’s multiplayer only. Even though revealing new multiplayer modes and Batlle Royale might have attracted a larger number of gamers, the American tech-giant wants to first regain the trust of old and loyal fans who are eagerly waiting for updates on multiplayer.

Jeff Grubb is confident that Xbox’s E3 2021 event will not reveal the new content in Halo Infinite. 343 Industries will only emphasize on aspects that matter to the long-lasting fans.

Is is worth noting that Halo Infinite, as per reports, will release in November 2021. Traditionally, other games in the franchise like Halo 3 had featured betas almost four months before hitting the stores.

It won’t be a surprise if Xbox follows a similar approach with Halo Infinite too. Based on the community feedback, it might even have multiple betas, and several testing periods. Naturally, E3 2021 can be the ideal occasion to announce the betas for Halo Infinite.
