According to John Junyszek, the year started off smoothly back at the studio. A smooth start for the developers only means good news for gamers eagerly waiting for the game to launch.

When does Halo Infinite come out?

There is still a lot of uncertainty around the release date of Halo Infinite. Even as 343 claims to have the game ready to release this year, it still hasn’t put a date to it. The closest it has come to set a date is saying that the game will release this fall.

The first title in the series, Halo: Combat Evolved, came out on November 15, 2001. This gives 343 the perfect opportunity to release Infinite on the same date this year. A 20th-anniversary release for a game-changer title in the series makes perfect sense for the studio.

Halo Infinite is one of the biggest Xbox exclusives to arrive in the future. In fact, the announcement of this game was probably a major reason for driving the sales of the latest consoles by Microsoft. While the PlayStation always manages to be way ahead of Xbox in terms of exclusives, Halo is enough to satisfy Xbox fans.

The power and performance of the Xbox Series X and Series S will give a major lift to the Halo experience. Therefore, the game will be certainly worth the wait if 343 manages to release it in time. Given the tweet by John, it looks like 343 will finish the production in time.
