Microsoft’s 343 Industries may be looking to launch the Xbox Series X/S game, Halo Infinite, in November 2021, according to a voice actor in the game.

Halo Infinite was initially set to launch alongside the Xbox Series X/S in November 2020, but the latest Master Chief adventure was bumped back to 2021 after a less-than-stellar gameplay showcase attracted derision and mockery in July.

The title now has a vague fall 2021 release date, but it looks like it’ll be arriving in November – at least, that’s if Verlon Roberts is to be believed. On the Fadam and Friends podcast that first went live last week, Roberts states that Halo Infinite has been ‘pushed to November’ this year, before confirming he’ll be playing ‘Spartan Griffin’ in the upcoming game.

Spartan Griffin already appears in Halo lore, making an appearance in the Shadows of Reach novel (thanks GamesRadar), but the character hasn’t been announced for the game by Microsoft yet. It looks like Roberts has said much more than he maybe should have!

Recently, we heard that all Halo Infinite sandbox launch content is apparently done, and 343 is currently working on polish and other elements of the game. Microsoft hasn’t announced an official release date beyond ‘Fall 2021’.
