Halo 4, Halo 5 and Halo Infinite mo-cap actor has revealed in the latest interview that Microsoft's upcoming blockbuster is ready to release sometime during Spring 2021.
Halo Infinite was initially planned to release as a launch title for Microsoft's new consoles Xbox Series X|S but sadly, the decision to delay the game has been made shortly after the official gameplay reveal at the Xbox Games Showcase in July.
The reasons for the delay are many - COVID-19 pandemic and poor reception from fans - to name a few. At the moment, the game still does not have an official release date but some rumours suggested that it could be coming in the first half of 2021.
And it seems these rumours are spot on. According to Halo 4, Halo 5 and Halo Infinite Master Chief mo-cap actor Bruce Thomas the game is ready to release in Spring 2021. "We have wrapped up Infinite, I believe, unless we try to do some more due to COVID but yeah, as far as I know, it's in the can, ready to go next Spring," Thomas said in a recent interview.
Last month, Xbox insider Klobrille said that Halo Infinite is more or less finished and he fully expects the game to release in 2021. Apparently, the developers are currently focusing on the technical aspect of the game.
This would suggest that the game is indeed ready to launch in early 2021 but with the pandemic still ongoing, everything is possible so don't be surprised if the release is pushed to summer 2021.
Of course, all of this is just speculation and you should take it with a grain of salt until we get an official confirmation. Though Bruce Thomas' wording does sound encouraging and we sincerely hope the game is coming soon.
