343 Industries has confirmed that Halo Infinite has been delayed until 2021, removing one of the Xbox Series X's critical launch titles away from the new console's launch day. 

In a public statement, 343 Industries Studio Head, Chris Lee, stated that the studio was facing "development challenges", which have been attributed to CIVID-19 and ofter factors. "It is not sustainable for the well-being of our team or the overall success of the game to ship it this holiday," Lee said. 

This delay will be a huge blow to Microsoft's Xbox Series X console, but this delay should ultimately result in the launch of a better, more polished Halo title and healthier working conditions for the teams behind it. 

Microsoft's Xbox Series X now has a confirmed November 2020 launch date, though the lack of Halo Infinite will leave the system without major launch title. That said, Xbox Series X will launch with over 40 existing games which will be "optimised for Xbox Series X" and more than 50 new games which will be releasing this year for the platform. At this time the system's pricing and exact release date remain unknown.

Great! They could have avoided almost all those problems by just having raytracing day 1 and sharper textures but...

Now, since they're delaying, they really need to bring all characters up to the same level as the pilot! It was really weird seeing the pilot with nice realistic hair and beard but the brutes had 2D images as facial hair damn... Crisp textures and raytracing qill bring up all the good things about what they've already shown us.Quote

They can delay another year if they like. The haven't made a good game yet so they need all the time in the world as far as I am concerned.Quote

I've only played Halo 4+5 for maybe an hour each when I owned the VHS XB1 and then I turned them off, I couldn't agree more, 343 are not good.Quote
