Halo Community Manager John Junyszek, has given a quick update to the status of the Halo Infinite multiplayer beta or "flight" as they like to call it.
A fan asked John on Twitter if there is an update on a timeframe for Halo Infinite Flights that players have been expecting now for a while.
Halo Infinite Multiplayer Beta Update
John has confirmed we will get details of the test "ahead of time" and it "will not be a surprise".
"We're constantly evaluating the flighting build, just like we do with MCC flights, and the exact timing is dictated by development realities. That said, once we have a firm date locked in, we'll let you know." John adds on to his original Tweet.
Microsoft's Phil Spencer recently confirmed that Halo Infinite is on track for a holiday 2021 release, and they are just working out small details between other titles releasing around the same time, ensuring they do not overlap.
If Halo Infinite is to release this year we can expect an announcement date for the upcoming flights soon as the team would want some breathing room to fix any issues players have during the test.
Players will need to sign up for the Halo Insider Program if they wish to take part in the upcoming flight.
Halo Infinite multiplayer will be free to play upon release, and the campaign will be available on Xbox Game Pass on day one.
Both games will be available on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
