finally coming in December. . .
Halo Infinite official release date December 2021 revealed, as Microsoft is finally acknowledging the 20th anniversary of Halo with only four months left. Throughout the year, many fans of the Halo franchise have been disgruntled with Microsoft completely ignoring the 20th anniversary of the series and the Xbox brand itself.
With Gamescom taking over this week, MS confirmed the long-awaited release date for Halo Infinite being December 8, 2021.
For the first time ever, the game will be FREE on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. This means you’ll be able to play it on Windows 10 PC, Xbox Cloud gaming, Xbox One and the Xbox Series X|S.
The most exciting aspect of this rollout is it being on the cloud server, as you’ll be able to jump into games online without having to be home. Take a look at the multiplayer season 1 preview and the 20th anniversary content.
