This announcement was made on the official Halo Waypoint website by 343 Industries’ Joseph Staten. Staten mentions that the team needed more time to do things “right,” whcih included pushing for the game’s release in the fall, so the studio can recharge over the holidays.
Here’s an excerpt of Staten’s letter to the community:
I’ve spent the last four months immersing myself back into the Halo universe, and it’s my honor as creative director to help our team ship Halo Infinite in Fall 2021.
Yep, that’s when the game is coming out. And from now until then, every one of us at 343i and our great partner teams will be building, testing, and polishing an experience we hope all of you love.
I joined 343i right as the team was wrestling with feedback from the July campaign demo. This discussion boiled down to one fundamental truth: we needed more time to do things right. That included pushing hard in the Fall, giving the team time to recharge over the Holidays, and then coming back in January to finish the game at a healthy pace.
