Halo Infinite Release Date Leak Points To December Launch

Halo Infinite’s release date is December 8, 2021, according to Microsoft Store listing.

Halo Infinite release date


According to a new listing on the European Microsoft Store, Halo Infinite’s long journey to release will finally be ending this December.

First spotted by Italian publication  Aggiornamenti Lumia, the updated listing for 343 Industries’ hugely anticipated first-person shooter points to a December 8 release date. We generally don’t put too much stock into online store updates. However, a follow-up Tweet by Xbox insider and The Verge Senior Editor Tom Warren lends credence to this being the official release date.


If true, this aligns with Microsoft and developer 343 Industries’ promises of delivering the game before the end of the year. However, it’s perhaps a bit later than some fans would expect. After all, with the series’ 20th anniversary coming up on November 15, it seemed like a safe bet that Halo Infinite’s launch would line up with such a momentous occasion. Still, better late than never, right?

Halo Infinite’s road to release has been a rocky one. The game was originally planned for release in December of 2020. But, developer 343 Industries announced last August that the game’s release would be shifted to 2021, citing the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, among other factors, as the reasons for the delay. Last week, it was also confirmed that the shooter would release without a co-op campaign or Forge. However, 343 Industries expects to add those features within 3 months of its launch.

Halo Infinite | Development Update – August

Halo Infinite is currently in development for the Xbox Series X|S and PC. As you’d expect, it will also be available on Game Pass at launch.

So, what are your thoughts on the game releasing this December? Do you plan on buying it at launch, or are you waiting until the co-op and Forge modes drop? As always, we love to hear what you think. So, be sure to let us know in the comments.
