Unfortunately for the Halo fans out there, 343 Industries has just announced that the release date for Halo Infinite is now being delayed until 2021, meaning the game will no longer be a launch title for the Xbox Series X when it comes out this November.

“We have made the difficult decision to shift our release to 2021 to ensure the team has adequate time to deliver a Halo game experience that meets our vision,” says studio head Chris Lee. “The decision to shift our release is the result of multiple factors that have contributed to development changes, including the ongoing COVID-related impacts affecting us all this year.”

Lee continued to acknowledge that the news may be disappointing to fans, but he wished to show his gratitude for their continued support and hopes to create a game that lives up to their expectations: “We know this will be disappointing to many of you and we all share in that sentiment. The passion and support the community has shown over the years has been incredible and inspiring. We wanted nothing more than to play our game with the community this holiday. The extra time will let us finish the critical work necessary to deliver the most ambitious Halo game ever at the quality we know our fans expect.”

There’s currently no official release date for Halo Infinite aside from some time in 2021, so fans of the franchise should definitely stay tuned for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in gaming, The Last of Us: Part 2 is getting new game modes.
