343 Industries announced that the monthly Halo Infinite devblog update will be delayed from May 27 to sometime in June.
Inside Infinite keeps fans updated on the highly anticipated sixth installment on the flagship Xbox series, and the next blog post was set for May 27. Community director Brian Jarrard said on Twitter that it’s been pushed back given the Xbox and Bethesda showcase coming up soon on June 13. Jarrard apologized to a fan about the schedule change: “Aye, sorry for that; life’s come at us fast these days.”
As previously reported, the Xbox and Bethesda showcase will contain ninety minutes worth of updates, reveals and announcements about games under the Xbox Game Studios portfolio with an emphasis on games from the newly acquired Bethesda family of developers. But with Halo featuring in the teaser art for the presser, we could see Halo Infinite making an appearance.
A big reveal from Microsoft and 343 Industries could happen should they choose to go big and finally show more of the game following a disappointing reveal at The Xbox Games Showcase last July. Since then, we’ve received zero multiplayer footage and just a small portion of the game’s single-player campaign. Not even the monthly Halo Infinite devblog updates has given us much to go on.
Microsoft’s Joseph Staten, who serves as senior creative director at Xbox Game Studios previously alluded to Halo Infinite making a big splash this summer. “We know that game videos are worth at least 10,000 words. And the great news is that Summer i.e., game industry event season, is just around the corner—and there are glorious plans afoot.”
For the sake of Halo fans, we hope that Staten’s remarks do in fact lead to a big reveal this summer. 2021 is supposed to be a special year as it marks the 20th anniversary of Xbox as well as Halo, which celebrates its anniversary on November 15, and Microsoft would be remiss to not have Halo Infinite out around that time.
