Halo Infinite's Xbox One version has not been cancelled - 343 Confirms

Recent rumours have suggested that Microsoft and 343 Industries were willing to axe the last-generation versions of Halo Infinite, making the game exclusive to Xbox Series systems and PC gamers. These rumours originated after the release of Cyberpunk 2077, a game which currently has major performance issues on last-generation consoles, putting many gamers off the ideal of cross-generation games entirely. 

Halo Infinite was delayed until sometime in 2021 to give 343 Industries more time to polish the title. In response to rumours that the Xbox One versions of Halo Infinite were cancelled, 343's Community Manager, John Junyszek, confirmed on Twitter that this was not the case. In a now-deleted Tweet regarding Halo Infinite's rumoured Xbox One cancellation, Junyszek simply replied: "Nope. Please let me enjoy the holidays".  

Some Halo fans are pleading for the last-generation versions of Halo Infinite to be cancelled, a move which would allow 343 to take full advantage of Microsoft's Xbox Series X and S systems to make the game look as good as possible. These fans fear that the last-generation versions of Halo Infinite would hold back the game's next-generation versions, that said, the game has already been in development with both platforms in mind for several years, making it too late to cancel the Xbox One versions of Halo Infinite for this reason. 

Halo Infinite is now due to release sometime in 2021 for PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series systems. This means that Halo Infinite will support 5 platforms at launch; PC, Xbox One (+ Xbox One S), Xbox One X, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X.
