We have all been waiting for what feels like ages for Halo Infinite’s campaign mode to finally come to light, and that just may happen thanks to a potential leak. The Verge‘s Tom Warren, an Xbox insider, validates that Halo Infinite will be set to launch on December 8th of this year via Twitter. However, this unusual release date has fans divided more than ever and blowing up social media.
While Warren writes this, fans cannot help but speculate due to the placeholder date still being listed on Microsoft’s website. Placeholder dates are usually always set to the last day of December when there is no official date set. While Warren has an ok track record for leaks with Microsoft, December is also a rather odd release date given the Halo franchise’s history. Usually, Halo games are released between September and November, not at the end of the year. Additionally, Halo and Xbox have their 20th anniversary coming up on November 15th, which fans believed the game would have released for that occasion.
Another reason suspicions are at an all-time high is that The Verge states both the campaign and multiplayer will be released on the 8th when the placeholder only shows the campaign. Both modes are supposed to be separate packages with the campaign being included in Game Pass.
While we had no updated information from the Gamescon briefing on Tuesday, this leak should hopefully provoke Microsoft into shedding some light tonight. The live event will be occurring at 10:30 a.m. PST/ 1:30 p.m. EST. So far Microsoft has yet to address the leak, making tonight even more interesting to keep an eye on.
