Halo Infinite

In August, Microsoft and 343 made the incredibly tough decision to delay the release of Halo Infinite until 2021.

So, when can we expect to hear more now that the project has been pushed back? According to 343 Industries' Community Director Brian Jarrard (via the Halo subreddit), the team has been hard at work and hopes to release a "high level" update within the coming weeks.

"Right now we're still going through the huge cascade of implications and ramifications to the release shift and the team is heads down working through nearly every facet of the game. Full disclosure we don't have anything planned for the VGAs, but are hoping to offer at least a high level update within the next few weeks so we can kind of restart this journey together after the holidays. Pulling together something like a demo or big beat for the VGAs is an enormous amount of work and would cause challenges with current milestones of the holidays. I know it's hard to wait, but the team is going to make the most of this extra time and we want to make sure we can put our best foot forward and commit to greater transparency and dialog on the road ahead. We'll get there and get the train going again."

Notably, there's nothing planned for the Video Game Awards and this next update is to help "restart" the journey.

Since Halo Infinite was delayed, Halo and Bungie veteran Joseph Staten has joined 343 as a project lead for the game's campaign, and more recently the director Chris Lee left.
