Long-time fans of the iconic Halo franchise are quite excited for the release of the next installment, to say the least. Halo Infinite is scheduled to release on December 8.

Over the span of the last 24 hours, Twitter has been flooded with a plethora of tweets suggesting something exciting. A large variety of accounts are reporting that the Halo Infinite’s multiplayer will be launched on November 15 itself. This is more than a few weeks before the announced date.

 


The reasoning behind these claims could be that November 15 will mark Halo: Combat Evolved’s 20th anniversary. Rumors like these tend to be nothing but speculation. However, things have gotten interesting when established parties back up claims like these. Nate the Hate is a popular YouTuber. He himself took to Twitter to corroborate the countless claims made regarding the game’s free-to-play multiplayer.

 


There might be more evidence to indicate the premature release of the multiplayer mode. There was a sequence of code in the Xbox Store that had pointed towards November 15 as a ‘PreOrderReleaseDate.’ The time code attached was 6 PM GMT. This coincides with Microsoft’s commencement of its Xbox Anniversary Edition.

That is not all. There is a cherry on top for fans as well. 343 Industries, the minds behind Halo Infinite, have been quite vocal in shooting down claims. However, in this case, they did not outright deny the claims of the Multiplayer being accessible on the 15th itself. This perhaps adds to the credibility of these reports. However, again, fans will need to wait for official confirmation from Microsoft.

Are you excited about Halo: Infinite?
