Halo Infinite 'Ready to Go' for Spring 2021, Says Master Chief MoCap Actor - News

Halo Infinite was originally going to be the big launch title for the Xbox Series X|S, as well as releasing on the Xbox One and PC, however, the game was delayed to 2021 with no firm release date or even release window. 

Actor Bruce Thomas, who has done the motion capture for Master Chief in Halo 4, Halo 5: Guardians, and now Halo Infinite, in a recent interview (and a snippet of it posted to Reddit) said "As far as I know, it’s in the can, ready to go for next Spring." 

A Spring 2021 release would be sometime from March 21 to June 21. It should be noted none of this has been confirmed by developer 343 Industries or publisher Microsoft.

Halo Infinite will launch in 2021 for the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.

I hope so, I was really looking forward to Infinite releasing this year. Spring 2021 wouldn't be too long of a wait (hopefully it's early spring, march/april).

Spring? Would be very surprised if the game looks any different than the last gameplay which didnt look nextgen at all.

Spring is what I was expecting really. Lines up with the statement from Phil saying that they were waiting on Xbox Series supply to catch up with demand before they release Halo, as well as the other Xbox exec saying they were expecting Xbox Series to sell out until March. If they finally meet initial demand by in March, it will take them about another month to manufacture several hundred thousand more Xbox Series units for Halo to move, so late April or May release I'm guessing.

We heard in early November that the game is essentially content complete. Barring a major redesign of multiple campaign elements, there's no reason to expect a super long delay.

Why would a mo-cap actor have any idea about the release date?

At least since it is someone that is talking directly and from his conversation with the team (although I don't think he have permission to talk) this could be accepted as current timeline for launch.
