Halo Infinite’s release date has finally been revealed.

During the Gamescom Opening Night Livestream on August 25th 2021, Microsoft and 343 Industries officially revealed the release date for Halo Infinite – December 8th, 2021. Although the confirmation of this date is good to have, there were  many leaks floating around suggesting that date was in fact true.

Twitter user @ALumia_Italia noticed that Microsoft had updated Halo Infinite’s store page, finally giving fans an official release date. Halo Infinite has been given a release window of December 8, 2021.

@ALumia_Italia also noted that the original placeholder had been removed, further confirming that this could be a valid release date. “JFYI: this Microsoft Store listing has been live since August 26, 2020, with a placeholder release date. They updated the entire store listing a few hours ago, with the new release date and new description, screenshots…”

The Verge’s own Senior Editor, Tom Warren, was also quick to confirm this release date as well. It certainly looks very promising for Halo fans looking to dive into the action this year. 


While Halo Infinite’s campaign will be available as a part of Xbox Game Pass – Microsoft’s subscription service, the multiplayer will be free for all Xbox and PC players.
