“Let me start just by recognising the fans and the fact that is is a bummer,” he said. “It is disappointing to people, it’s disappointing to us. We were looking forward to the alignment of Halo Infinite and the Xbox Series X. In the end, I have to make the right decision. The strength of the Halo franchise — the health and ability of the team…are things tracking toward the quality of where you want the game?”
“It just didn’t feel, to all of us, like the Halo release that we would want,” Spencer said. “I’ll apologise to the fans, because I never like to set up expectations and then not hit them. But I also believe we’re making the right decision, in the long run, for both Xbox and Halo and our customers.”
Halo Infinite is expected to release in 2021 on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Windows 10 PCs.
