With the Xbox Series X formally announced, fans are eagerly awaiting the next obvious step: the Halo Infinite beta, as we were left hungry for more after it's E3 2019 announcement. So far, we've not had too much to go on with Halo Infinite other than two cinematic trailers but many are looking forward to the Halo Infinite release date at the back end of 2020.
Halo Infinite may have dropped the numbers, but it will still continue the main story arc and chronological order following on from Halo 5. Many are hoping more clarification will be made on Halo Infinite at Gamescom 2019.
We will update this article when new information is revealed. Make sure to bookmark this page and check back regularly!
Free Copy For Xbox Series X
In addition to the incredible specs that Microsoft's new console is boasting, players who purchase a copy of selected games, such as Halo Infinite and Cyberpunk 2077 for the Xbox One, will receive a free copy of the game for the Xbox Series X when available.
Looks like Microsoft isn't playing around.
When Will Halo Infinite Release?
Halo Infinite is planned to release in the holiday of 2020 on Xbox One, Project Scarlett and PC. Phil Spenecer, the head of Xbox, recently commented on how he wants to bring Halo Infinite to PS4 to create "a connected ecosystem" for players.
What Do We Know About The Halo Infinite Beta?
Although we don't know an official date for the Halo Infinite Beta, we have been assured there will be plenty of chances to play it before the full launch. 343 Industries will be hosting a pre-launch "Flighting Program" for Halo Infinite, very similar to their current Halo: Master Chief Collection test, made up of numerous "opt-in flights".
These opt-in flights will "start small and slowly expand out until release" according to a Halo Waypoint post.
The Halo Infinite multiplayer is already confirmed to be in full swing in terms of development as it already supports LAN and split-screen features in the gameplay.
Currently, Halo Infinite features a deep armour customisation system, similar to Halo: Reach, and will reward players that reached SR 152 in Halo 5 in the new game. Black undersuits will also make a return.
With Gamescom 2019 around the corner, we must expect to hear more about a Halo Infinite beta schedule. However, its been said that Halo Infinite will not be heard about again until E3 2020 - this seems like a very long time to wait until its release with little to show between then and its launch. Many are expecting a beta of some sort to make an appearance in some form before the end of 2019 or at the beginning of 2020.
