Halo Infinite "high-level update" coming in the next few weeks

By Sean Carey,
It's been somewhat quiet on the Halo Infinite front as of late. Since the game was delayed, we've only heard about the comings and goings of people associated with the project, but that looks like it will change soon with 343 Industries promising fans a "high-level update" in the coming weeks.

Halo Infinite dev denies leak

In a comment over on Reddit, 343 Industries community director Brian Jarrard told fans that the team is "heads down working through nearly every facet of the game," and that 343 won't be showing anything at this year's The Game Awards. Instead, the studio is "hoping to offer at least a high-level update within the next few weeks so we can kind of restart this journey together after the holidays.

"Pulling together something like a demo or big beat for the VGAs is an enormous amount of work and would cause challenges with current milestones of the holidays," Jarrard continues. "I know it's hard to wait, but the team is going to make the most of this extra time, and we want to make sure we can put our best foot forward and commit to greater transparency and dialogue on the road ahead. We'll get there and get the train going again."

Halo Infinite is expected to launch sometime in 2021, and with any luck, we'll hear more on a potential release date soon. In the meantime, players will have to make do with Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which today (November 17th) receives cross-play and a bunch of graphical and performance improvements with the Halo: MCC Series X|S update. PC players will be pleased to know that Halo 4 also joins Halo: MCC today.
