If you've been eager for a Halo Infinite update, the first "Inside Infinite" of 2021 is now live on Halo Waypoint.
Following on from his recent update via Reddit, 343's Halo community director, Brian Jarred, took a brief moment to address Halo Infinite news updates at the beginning of the latest post - stating how these specific updates wouldn't be the place for "huge announcements", gameplay trailers and more.
These perhaps more exciting announcements will be made "in due time" and more likely as "large industry events" take the spotlight:
"While we will always strive to inform and delight our community with these updates, this isn’t the place for huge announcements, specific feature deep-dives, or gameplay trailers. We know you’re all very eager for updated campaign gameplay, a proper multiplayer reveal, public flighting, and many other specific aspects of Halo Infinite. That will all come in due time as large industry events take center stage and the Halo marketing machine kicks into high gear."
Although the team isn't "committing" to any specific dates just yet, the big months for 343 could potentially be around June, July and August, and it'll likely be more than just Waypoint blogs - with plans to ready a "strong roadmap post-Summer" in the lead-up to Halo Infinite's launch.
"June, July, and August typically deliver big moments across the entire games industry so while we’re not committing to anything specific yet, we expect to have more than just Waypoint blogs this Summer. And in full transparency, we’re still actively working across the teams to make sure we have a strong roadmap post-Summer leading up to launch this Fall. Until then, we look forward to going on this monthly journey together and are grateful for your continued support."
