Microsoft is still considering releasing Halo Infinite’s campaign and multiplayer separately

Back in August, Phil Spencer discovered Microsoft and 343 considered releasing Halo Infinity’s single player campaign and multiplayer separately to ensure at least one of them that it was time for the Xbox Series X launch. Made on

According to Phil Spencer, not only was Halo Infinite not released in time for the series X debut, again, all options for release are still on the table, including splitting the game in half as before. It was believed And yet when there was just one rumor in July 2020, before Spencer addressed it, 343 said it out loud,

And yet, Spencer this week when asked about the issue in a new Kotaku interview:

“Bonnie (Ross, head of 343) and the team will drive those decisions,” Spencer said. “But I think we want to make sure that people feel like they have a Halo experience. I think we can look at alternatives like this … So, yes, I think its There is something to think about, but we want to make sure that we get it right. “

While it still may not pass, it seems pretty clear that Microsoft recently wants to get at least some part of Halo Infinity instead of there, given how heavy the Series X marketing is on Master Head, And must be accompanied by something else — the exclusives that appear in this launch window.

Halo Infiniti still only has a 2021 release date, but it has made major changes like bringing in Halo Ozzy Joe Staton to help supervise the campaign, which doesn’t seem like a move to you Which you are ready to say. February instead of November. The running theory now is that Anant may get a full one-year delay for the 2021 holiday as Microsoft’s big release That This one instead of year.

And yet it does not happen if the game is divided. You can watch single player released in spring and multiplayer in fall, or vice versa. But if you don’t do it, it’s a damn, if you don’t make the situation, that’s why I think 343 it seems they feel very uncomfortable about a possible split. If you release a campaign by yourself, you are taking Halo, the lifetime of the multiplayer away indefinitely, which will look very strange. But then if you release multiplayer first, it can feel lifeless without any context to the story. There is a reason you almost never watch the games, unless they are very massively multiplayer focused (Sushima with Ghost, the standalone MP modes of the future The Last of Us Part 2, Cyberpunk).

This is not like a good idea for me. Halo Infiniti has already put an end to all manner of controversy with its poor initial reveal and subsequent delays. And then it would be headed for a whole new way of play if just “half” the game starts when it finally comes, no matter which half it is. I understand that Microsoft wants to take Halo out and this delay has really hurt them, and so far the game splits it looks like it may have the potential to do more harm than good, and I personally. I will wait until 2021 if the entire project was released as a cohesive, polished unit.

We’ll see how this fall plays out with the Series X launch, and if the 343 has anything to say about Spencer’s comments.
