If things had gone to plan, Halo Infinite would have launched alongside the Xbox Series X, but like so many other projects, its release ended up being delayed—it is expected to launch in the third or fourth quarter of this year. Waiting is frustrating, but a delay might have been the best thing for Halo Infinite, because newly released screenshots show the development team has been putting in extra effort to make the game look great when it does finally release. Stunning visuals have not been a foregone conclusion, with regards to Halo Infinite. Last year, developer 343 Industries said it had "decided to shift back towards the legacy aesthetics that defined the original trilogy," and return... Read more...
In a rather extensive blog posted this week by 343 Industries, the developers confirmed that all the launch content for Halo Infinite is now complete and in the game. That is a huge step for the dev team, which has been working tirelessly to get the highly anticipated game finished up for release later this year. Even though the content within the game sandbox is finished, that doesn't mean that there isn't room for tweaking things between now and launch. "We have everyone fixing bugs on our launch content and some exciting efforts kicking off for future updates--like new vehicles, equipment, etc.," said Quinn DeHoyo, who serves as Lead Sandbox Designer for 343 Industries in the blog....

Earlier this week, some rather disappointing rumors made the rounds which claimed that 343 Industries would be taking two rather extreme measures with respect to its highly anticipated Halo Infinite. The first rumor was that the game – which has already been delayed until 2021 – would be further delayed until 2022. The second rumor suggested that the Xbox One version of the game had been canceled altogether due to performance issues.  The second rumor in particular was quite interesting, given that Microsoft has taken the firm stance that it would provide cross-generational support for new games for at least the new few years, meaning that there would be no Xbox Series X exclusives....

Halo fans will need to wait a bit longer until they can get their hands on the next game in the series. It was recently announced that Halo Infinite has been delayed until 2021.

Developer 343 Industries is acutely aware of the criticisms surrounding the recent gameplay reveal of Halo: Infinite, a highly touted launch title for Microsoft's upcoming Xbox Series X console. It would be impossible not to be aware—even Domino's Pizza took the opportunity to poke fun at the situation (and promote its pizza in the process) on Twitter. So, what does it have to say about it? Putting the situation into perspective, 343 Industries says it has been hearing "far more positive than negative" feedback, so it does not exactly have a crisis on its hands. However, it does realize there has been plenty of chatter and debate over the art style and visual fidelity of the demo, which... Read more...
Oh. My. Goodness. You might be having a bad day, but did you wake up to a tweet by Domino's Pizza making fun of you? Microsoft did, following the gameplay reveal of Halo: Infinite, an upcoming launch title for the immensely hyped Xbox Series X console that is due to arrive this holiday season (November or December), with Navi in tow.

Instead of being blown away by the visuals,... Read more...
If you were a bit underwhelmed by Microsoft's previous gaming showcase as part of its Xbox 20/20 series, the company has a second chance at redemption with an upcoming event scheduled for July 23rd. An event like this would typically be held at E3, but the COVID-19 pandemic blew those plans out of the water, forcing Microsoft to improvise. The event, which will take place at 12:00pm EST, will highlight many of hot first-party games that will be coming to the Xbox Series X. As you might expect, the most highly anticipated game to be shown off will be Halo Infinite. Developer 343 Industries -- which is part of Xbox Game Studios -- teased Halo Infinite briefly back in June (see embed below). We're... Read more...
