Halo Infinite Community Manager Reaffirms Release for Xbox One in 2021

Fear not as Halo Infinite will still be launching on Xbox One in addition to PC and Xbox Series X next year.

In recent days, rumors have started swirling that, in the wake of its recent delay, 343 Industries could opt to outright cancel the Xbox One iteration of Halo Infinite. Supporting rumors have also gone on to say that the game could be outright pushed out of its new 2021 release window, as well. Fortunately, it seems as though neither of these rumors will be coming to fruition.

343 Industries community manager John Junyszek recently took to Twitter to shut down all of the talk that has been transpiring over the past couple of days. Responding to a message from professional Halo player Eric “Snip3down” Wrona who mentioned the possibility of Infinite being pushed back to 2022, Junyszek reaffirmed that the studio is still aiming to launch next year for all previously-confirmed platforms. “There are no plans to change our 2021 release or the devices and platforms we’ll be supporting,” Junyszek said clearly.

In all honesty, it’s not surprising to see Junyszek shut down these rumors pretty quickly given how widespread they have become this week. I figured it would only be a matter of time until someone at Microsoft or 343 commented on this speculation publicly and Junyszek didn’t let me down in that regard.

While things could obviously still change between now and release, Halo Infinite is still set to arrive across Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC at an undetermined date next year.
