Halo Infinite, Microsoft’s next major title launch in the long-running Halo franchise will be launching this year on December 8. After being spotted on numerous reports, Microsoft later confirmed the launch date itself during the opening of Gamescom 2021, complete with a new cinematic trailer for the game.

New Xbox Series X console and Xbox Elite controller
Microsoft also announced a new Halo Infinite-themed Xbox Series X console and a companion Xbox Elite controller to go with it. The controller and console can both be seen sporting iconic Halo colours and styling. Check it out here.
Halo Infinite was originally slated to launch alongside the Xbox Series X/S in November last year. However, challenges that arose due to the pandemic delayed the title. Now, the official launch date comes days after 343 industries announced the absence of campaign co-op and Forge gameplay modes.
343 hasn’t really shown off a lot of details on what the games’ campaign mode could look like since we saw Craig last year. However, the game’s first multiplayer preview did look like it captured the authentic Halo experience.
These modes are expected to be included in the game’s Season 2 which is again expected to be launched a few months later. The Forge mode that lets players customize and share maps could even be a part of the third season.
