Halo Infinite is coming folks. Now we know what Xbox Series X is called, what it looks like and a vague launch window, the arrival of Halo Infinite feels closer than ever. The sixth game in the Halo series is coming sometime this year, and it’s called Halo Infinite. The game will return to the franchise’s beloved roots, with Spartan John-117 (Master Chief) stepping his big ol’ boots back into the role of protagonist. We don’t have very many details about the game’s plot (or much else, for that matter), but we’ve gathered everything you should know here.
And despite recent departures from top developers, 343 Industries does not want you to worry. According to them, Halo Infinite is still set to release for the Xbox series X, despite losing creative director Tim Longo on August 19 and lead producer on the campaign, Mary Olson, on October 14. Olson left 343 Industries to join Midwinter Entertainment.
But there’s nothing wrong behind the scenes, guys, at least according to community manager John Junyszek. He said in a Reddit post that there is “no creative dilemma” at 343 Industries, and that Olson’s departure is an industry standard standard. It’s still strange that Olson left only two months after Longo, as she was the one who replaced him as creative director.
Despite reassurances that we’ll be getting Halo Infinite when Xbox Series X drops during Holiday 2020.
