According to a reliable Halo Infinite data miner, 343 Industries' the long-awaited title will launch with 23 maps. He also revealed that the next flight could be in October.
Xbox's biggest exclusive of 2021, Halo Infinite, is getting closer to its launch after years and years of development. 343 Industries already hosted one flight, testing the game multiplayer features and more and are expected to give us details on the next tests very soon.
We're also waiting to hear about the amount of content on launch, which will probably be revealed as we get closer to the release date.
However, some data miners have managed to dig interesting info regarding Halo Infinite's maps on launch. Apparently, the game will have a total of 23 maps when it releases in December 2021. This certainly is a huge number of maps and if true, we expect to see some remakes of the older Halo maps, which has been a tradition for the franchise over the last decade.
The data miner is pretty confident that the game will launch with 23 maps since all of these maps are in the game and have assets assigned to them, suggesting that they are mostly done.
As for the next flight, apparently, it won't be coming this month but 343 Industries will host it sometime in October.
Of course, since this is far from confirmed, take it with a dose of scepticism until we get more details regarding both the number of maps and the next flight.
