Release Date

As of right now, no official release date has been given.

However, we expect it to be around November 2021, one year after its original release date.

Game Pass

Like all first and second party Xbox games, Halo Infinite will be available on Xbox Game Pass on day one.

This means that players will be able to play the game as part of their monthly subscription, rather than having to pay $70 for a copy.
