Halo Infinite To Be Released December 8th, 2021 After Delay
Final Confirmation but With an Asterisk
Fans of the vaunted Halo franchise finally got a definitive answer during Gamescom, concerning the release of the newest entry. Early December will be the targeted date after the game has gone through developmental issues due to COVID-19, such as the title will not have Campaign CO-OP or Forge at its initial release. This will undoubtedly have a lot of fans up in arms due, with two of the most enjoyable modes being unavailable until later updates/seasons.
What Did the Trailer Show?
A young lady, who is later revealed to be a commanding officer, is saved by the Spartans from a member of the Banished. The action was smooth, the graphical upgrades and advancements were on display, and the character models were incredibly lifelike. A good trailer excites a fanbase and creates clamour for the release, and this is what this trailer will do.
Last Word on Gaming Viewpoint
Unfortunately, the pandemic has thrown a lot of gaming developments out of whack with financial, time, and health constraints. Microsoft knows there will be an initial disappointment; however, getting the product out at least for the time being will satiate rabid fans. As well, the announcement that the game will come with Halo Infinite Styling, a Halo Infinite-themed Xbox Series X Controller, and an Xbox Elite Controller is good news. This is the company’s way of making it up to fans and should be applauded at the very least.
