Oh Hey, Halo Infinite’s Multiplayer is Available Now

The campaign will still launch in December.

Halo Infinite’s campaign is still coming out next month, but 343 Industries and Microsoft have decided to put the first season of its multiplayer out early as part of a beta test. All progress made will carry over to the main game.

The announcement was made after leaks and rumors surfaced that Microsoft would be shadow-dropping Halo Infinite’s multiplayer this week, although it was reportedly nearly delayed. But now, it’s out on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC through the Microsoft Store. The full game was initially meant to launch alongside the Xbox Series X/S last November, but was delayed over a year. Microsoft and 343 had conversations about releasing the campaign and multiplayer separately back then, but didn’t want to release the first Halo on a new console “in pieces.” They’re doing it now, but a few weeks apart probably feels better than a year apart.

In other news:

The Fanbyte staff has already been digging Halo Infinite’s multiplayer based on its early betas and tests, to the point where they would have been chill with the campaign not coming out in 2021 at all. But the story mode will be launching in just a few short weeks, and will continue the story of Master Chief.
