Klobrille says he is confident that Halo Infinite will release in 2021, despite some rumours suggesting that delay could be much longer than initially expected.
"The game is more or less content complete. They can fully focus on the technical aspects now. I absolutely do expect Halo Infinite to be released 2021," the insider tweeted.
