Ever since it was announced that the July edition of the Xbox 20/20 stream will focus on first-party titles, rumors have circulated that the highly anticipated Halo Infinite will be one of the featured games. Now, developer 343 Industries have made an official post via Halo Waypoint confirming the rumor to be true.
The lengthy developer's update primarily contained information regarding Halo 2 Anniversary, which was recently added to the PC version of the Master Chief Collection. The confirmation of Infinite's upcoming appearance was announced in an almost offhand manner, via a single sentence at the very bottom of the post:
"You may have seen people talking about this lightly before, but we're extremely excited to confirm that Halo Infinite will be one of many first-party titles included in the Xbox 20/20 event in July. Get ready."
The first Xbox 20/20 stream, which took place on May 7, featured a variety of partner and third-party titles which will be released for the upcoming Xbox Series X console. While some fans were excited by the announcements of Dirt 5, Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2, and more, as well as a closer look at Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, others, were disappointed by the shortage of actual gameplay revealed during the event.
Currently, no official date has been announced for the July first-party stream. Fans can only hope that there will be a greater focus on gameplay, especially for such eagerly awaited titles as Halo Infinite.
As of their latest update, 343 Industries still plans to release Halo Infinite sometime in 2020. In addition to the Series X, the title will also come to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It is currently unknown what effect the global COVID-19 pandemic has had on the development and planned release of the game.
