Will Halo Infinite skip the Xbox One? In any case, this is what a post by a lead designer on LinkedIn suggested. The developers of 343 Industries were again forced to deny the rumor.
As you may know, Halo Infinite was expected to be the flagship game for the launch of the Xbox Series X and Series S. Only last July, Microsoft released 8 minutes of gameplay from the upcoming title from 343 Industries. Problem, the state of the game clearly leaves something to be desired between overall graphics rendering worthy of the Xbox One and rather hazardous character modeling. In other words, we are far from the graphic slap announced.
Faced with the controversy, the developers of 343 Industries decide to postpone the release of the game, without giving a precise date. While the rumors evoke a launch in 2022 only, Microsoft had to speak to deny these rumors of corridor. Finally, Halo Infinite will land at the end of 2021, a year after the initial release date.
And on this Friday, December 24, 2020, we learn that a new rumor was swelling about the Xbox One version of the title. It all started with a post on LinkedIn by Chad Mirshak, lead designer at 343 Industries. Thus, we can read in his professional experiences that the man works on Halo Infinite on Xbox Series X, Series S and PC only.
It did not take more for Internet users to wonder about a possible cancellation of the Xbox One version. Hard to blame them, after the scandal of the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Cyberpunk 2077. Maybe 343 Industries decided not to reproduce the CD Projekt RED error and to focus only on the next-gen versions of Halo. Infinite?
Xbox One owners, rest assured it is not. John Junyszek, community manager of 343 Industries, wanted to re-establish the truth on Twitter. “Nope. Please let me enjoy the holidays ”, he wrote on the social network. The answer has the merit of being clear, Halo Infinite will be released on Xbox One at the end of 2021. However, we hope that the disparities between the current-gen and next-gen versions will not be too great and that players will not have to relive another disappointment of the caliber of Cyberpunk 2077.
Nope. Please let me enjoy the holidays 🤪
