Halo Infinite is slated for a release on Xbox consoles and PC later this year. An exact release date has yet to be revealed, but Microsoft did somewhat narrow down the launch date following this year’s E3 event.

“Let's wait until we're really solid on what the date is, but the team's very committed to holiday”, Xbox head Phil Spencer said during a podcast last month. “We feel good about that and the way that Pierre and Joseph are running the team, I feel good about the confidence we have in both quality and getting the game done.”
