Halo Infinite publisher 343 Industries is planning to release multiple betas in the lead-up to the game’s release later this year.
Halo fans had a rough ending to 2020, with the next game in the series, Infinite, being delayed until Fall 2021 according to 343 Industries.
Despite that setback, it appears we’ll get a chance to play the game well before that, since the developers are apparently “actively drafting plans” to roll out multiple “test flights” of the game before its official release, according to information found on the Halo Insider website.
According to the info, 343 Industries is currently planning to use the Halo Insider Program for the multiple beta tests before the game fully launches, which will give devs a chance to find and fix bugs and other glitches that might have slipped through the cracks.

When are the Halo Infinite beta tests?
We don’t have an exact release date for any of the test flights just yet, other than that they will be starting “later this year” according to the publisher, which could be Spring or Summer since the game is slated to come out in Fall.
Rest assured these should be announced well ahead of time by 343, and if you’re signed up as an insider you’ll also receive a notification in your email and on your Xbox account when it does happen.
