An alleged statement from 343 Industries on Twitter told that Halo Infinite was delayed again and will arrive until 2022. But don’t panic yeti because this apparently is a false announcement and the FPS game is still scheduled to arrive this year.
But why did this happen? Because the statement being circulated was not made by 343 Industries. It was made on an account created in March 2021 and only has 32 followers. This means that it has nothing to do with the studio in charge of the development of Halo Infinite.
We don’t blame you if you saw the tweet and freaked out. After all, it comes accompanied by a statement very similar to the one they used to inform that Halo Infinite would not arrive last year. Also, they used an “l” instead of a capital “i” in the studio’s name to make you think it was their official user. As if that wasn’t enough, they tried to use an emoji to pass it off as a verified account.
Now, in case you’re still in any doubt, you can head over to the official Halo account, which 343 Industries uses to communicate everything related to Halo Infinite and other projects. As you’ll see, there’s nothing there related to a delay or anything like that.
As you can see, it was just a joke that surely a group of gamers wanted to make to celebrate April’s Fools.
Everything indicates that Halo Infinite will arrive this year
In recent months several reasons have emerged to think that Halo Infinite will indeed arrive this year. Originally the project was to arrive in late 2020 to be one of the Xbox X|S Series launch titles. Sadly, development conditions caused by the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) caused the project to be delayed to this year.
In recent months, Microsoft has reiterated that Halo Infinite will indeed be one of its 2021 games and even gave it a release window. As if that wasn’t enough, we also have voice actors hinting at which month of the year it will arrive.
