While we don’t yet have an official release date for Halo Infinite, it may have been leaked by Xbox Mexico itself. In a tweet posted by the Xbox Mexico account, an interesting message was written that fans couldn’t help but read as an early announcement, although it could well be a simple mix-up. It’s a tweet that contains a teaser for a partnership between Xbox and Krispy Kreme.
The tweet writes: “Why to wait until November when we can start the festivities now?”. The tweet also contains an image of Halo Infinite. This message may simply refer to the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the franchise and the brand. But it was inevitable for fans to see here a veiled announcement of Halo Infinite’s release date.
Among the missing announcements from Xbox E3 was, without a doubt, the release date for Halo Infinite. Fans were eagerly awaiting confirmation of this. Instead, Xbox decided to keep the “holiday” tag for this. Phil Spencer subsequently clarified that the game would not be delayed beyond 2021 and that the exact release date would be revealed once it was clear that there was no risk of a date change.
It’s still too early to tell whether Xbox Mexico’s tweet actually revealed Halo Infinite’s release date or not. It’s likely just a misreading of the tweet, though, as Forza Horizon 5 will be released in November.
