Everything We Know About Halo Infinite (So Far): Release Dates & Details

Are you ready to step back into the shoes of Master Chief? Halo Infinite is the latest mainline game for the Halo series, and this Microsoft exclusive is sure to have fans running to their Xboxes and PCs. We have everything you need to know about Halo Infinite too, so you don’t have to scour the Internet for the most basic details. Keep on reading below!

What is Halo Infinite?

Halo Infinite is the latest entry to the popular Halo series. Infinite returns the spotlight fully to Master Chief for this entry, and takes place after Halo 5.

We don’t know all that much about Halo Infinite yet–besides the teaser reveal during E3 2018 and a few interviews with staff from developer 343 Industries, not much has been revealed about the game. We’re hoping to learn more during E3 2019!

What is Halo Infinite’s Release Date?

Currently, we don’t know the release date for Halo Infinite. However, with E3 just around the corner, we’ll be sure to learn more about a release window by then.

What is Halo Infinite Releasing On?

Halo Infinite will be releasing on the Xbox One, as well as PC.

Do I Need to Play the Previous Halo Titles to Enjoy Halo Infinite?

It’s actually a more complicated question than you’d think. Halo Infinite takes place after Halo 5, the latest game in the series, and continues Master Chief’s story. But that logic, if you’re interested in the plot, you think you’d have to play the previous mainline games to understand what’s going on. However, 343 has stated that they’re going to make the story easier to get into for new players than Halo 5 was, while offering a great story for series veterans. It’s not an easy balance to make, so we’ll see how 343 pulls it off!

What Multiplayer Modes are in Halo Infinite?

Right now, we don’t know too much in general about Halo Infinite, let alone the multiplayer modes. However, it’s the multiplayer modes that put the original Halo on the map, so we can safely assume there are at least competitive multiplayer modes. We also speculate due to the “Infinite” moniker and open-world-feeling trailer we saw at E3 2018, we could be looking at a live service cooperative experience. We’ll update when we know for sure.

Are There Microtransactions in Halo Infinite?

There has been a lot of concern from Halo fans regarding the game having microtransactions after a job posting for the developers mentioned it. But, there’s no actual word on whether or not there are going to be microtransactions in Halo Infinite yet. What we do know, however, is that Halo Infinite will not have a battle royale mode.

What Else Do I Need to Know About Halo Infinite?

The art will draw upon nostalgia – Much of Master Chief’s look in Halo Infinite draws from his most iconic designs and is sure to delight series fans.

There will be a beta – At some undetermined point in the future, there will be a beta for Halo Infinite that will allow players to really get a feel for the latest Halo title.

Split-screen support will be back – 343 has realized their error with Halo 5, and split-screen multiplayer will be back for Halo Infinite.
