Apart from his role in Halo Infinite, Bruce Thomas played Russel Addler in Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War. He was part of a live chat on Dan Allen Gaming, where he primarily talked about Call of Duty’s latest title.

However, the conversation soon shifted towards Halo Infinite’s release date. When asked about wrapping up the game, Bruce answered, “I believe, unless we’re gonna try to do some more.”

He also added, “But yeah, as far as I know it’s in the can. Ready to go for next spring.”

Halo Infinite could significantly enhance Xbox Series X/S sales

Particularly in UK and Japan, Sony’s PlayStation 5 has been substantially ahead of Xbox Series X/S in sales. Even though both the latest consoles match each other in terms of specifications, the Series X/S lag in exclusive titles.

Halo Infinite was the only attractive exclusive title for the launch of Microsoft’s consoles. On the flip side, the PlayStation 5 offered Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Demon’s Souls on release.

Having said that, the recent developments hint towards a better future for both Halo Infinite and the Xbox Series X/S. If Bruce Thomas’ claims are true, the game is really close to going ‘gold’. Microsoft has also acquired Zenimax, and it is clear that the company is finally brushing up its exclusive titles list.
