Having originally been scheduled for release in November 2020 as an Xbox Series X/S launch title, Halo Infinite will now be released for consoles and PC on December 8, 2021.
“Throughout human history, heroes have risen when called upon,” reads the blurb accompanying the game’s live action trailer (below), which is titled ‘Forever We Fight’.
“The Master Chief carries each act of bravery with him into his most challenging battle yet. We’ve always believed in heroes, it’s time to become one.”

Halo Infinite‘s campaign has been designed with Normal difficulty in mind for the first time in the series, its designers told VGC in an interview published earlier this month.
