It may not be a good idea to base all of your hopes and dreams on Halo Infinite at this point in time. It was bad enough that 343 Industries recently announced that the multiplayer shooter would be delaying into 2021, but the scuttlebutt is that a further delay may be in the cards — and worse.
VG247 published a rumor floating about that the game is considering a further delay to 2022 and may drop Xbox One from its platform lineup.
The rumor seems to originate from a Resetera forum member who was consulting with sources near to the project. “Microsoft/343i is currently very busy with idea of dropping Xbox One support for Halo Infinite,” the poster said. “Even idea to postpone it to early 2022 is on the table. It’s pretty messy up there with decisions but they are convinced that they need to make best Halo game ever.”
Even if the rumor proves false, it shows that there’s suddenly a lot of confusion about Halo Infinite — and deep concern about its future.
