After the Microsoft Store accidentally leaked the release date earlier today, we now have official confirmation that Halo Infinite is arriving for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC on December 8.

Of course, the multiplayer will be free-to-play, as previously confirmed, and the campaign will be available to purchase separately or available for Xbox Game Pass members at no extra charge. Coming alongside the announcement is an impressive new cinematic trailer, introducing season one of the multiplayer.

We know both co-op campaign and Forge mode won't be available at launch but instead will be dropping in subsequent seasons down the line. 343 Industries tampered with the idea of delaying the game but instead settled on releasing the package as it is this December.

It's great to finally have a release date after a huge delay from its original 2020 launch. This December, Halo is back.

Bring it on!
