Halo Infinite Team to Provide Monthly Updates on Development
While Halo Infinite isn’t scheduled to be released until Fall 2021, developed 343 Industries has committed to monthly updates regarding Master Chief’s newest adventure, and the first one is coming later this week.
343 Industries employee ske7ch343 responded to a Reddit post claiming its been a long time since we’ve gotten any news on the much anticipated game, reassuring fans that all is under control and much more Halo Infinite news is on its way.
“Has it though? Not saying it’s right or a good thing, but considering we went 12 month stretches of total darkness and our last update was on December 8, I don’t think there’s any cause to worry,” ske7ch343 wrote. “Keep in mind that many of us around the studio were out of office for 2 or more weeks to end the year and then it takes time to get back into the swing of things, etc.
“We also confirmed our Fall release window in that update, so now it’s clear we have some runway ahead of us and some time to go. That said, we’re committed to at least monthly high level updates and the next “Inside Infinite” is coming out this week! This month we’re talking with members of the sandbox team to share some insights into their vision for Halo Infinite and the work they’re doing. To manage expectations, this won’t have world premier big screenshots or huge things like a date announce, but our goal is to offer our community more context and insights into our team and the game we’re making while we’re all awaiting the larger beats and full marketing machine later this year.”
So, while we may not be getting huge news this week, Halo Infinite fans can rest a bit easier knowing updates will be more regular going forward.

Halo Infinite, and its free-to-play multiplayer, were originally scheduled for a Holiday 2020 release, but the team decided to delay the planned Xbox Series X/S launch title following negative reception to its Xbox Games Showcase reveal demo.
Since then, 343 has addressed many of the complaints and has been making changes to hopefully ensure its success, including bringing back Halo veteran Joseph Staten to lead development on Halo Infinite’s campaign.
