Master Chief’s longevity is in full force as Halo Infinite marks another generation that the legendary shooter franchise will appear in. There’s a lot of buzz about the game, so we’ve put together some crucial details including Halo Infinite’s release date, crossplay, gameplay, and more.
Halo, the iconic Sci-Fi drama that has achieved mainstream coverage, is gearing up for another iteration of tight gunplay with lots of aliens to slay.
Scheduled for a December 2020 release, Halo Infinite’s arrival had to be pushed back due to its development being disturbed by the world’s ongoing events. This slight hiccup has nearly passed, however, and we have some key details that you should know about the 2021 arrival of Halo Infinite.
Halo Infinite story
Gripping narratives are synonymous with Halo games. After keeping the appearances of Master Chief slightly more limited in Halo 5: Guardians, 343 Industries have taken this feedback on board and reverted to a more familiar status quo.
These are the key details regarding Halo Infinite’s story:
- It will focus more on Master Chief who’s just woken from a deep sleep
- It has been described as a “spiritual reboot” for the franchise
- 343 are making the story less complicated than Halo 5: Guardians
- The Banished will serve as the game’s primary antagonists
It’s clear that 343 Industries wants to keep Infinite’s story a bit more grounded and not require you to have played every Halo game to completely understand all the details.
