I’m absolutely fine with this delay and the update from 343. Unlike some, I’ve loved every Halo title from 343, and have always appreciated the fact that they interweave so much of the expanded universe and push their tech to the limits. Halo Infinite may have appeared bad to some but I always knew it was several builds old and a hell of a lot more real than most e3 presentation demos we see from other sources (Sony is infamous for their bullshots, and this year was no different). That said, 343 has a lot of pressure being the heralds of one of the biggest franchises with a fan base that’s as vitriolic as they are loyal, so it’s better to do things as right on the front end as possible. Besides, I have more than 700 games waiting to be played and waiting an extra year for a game that will most likely eat much of that time is fine with me.
I’m satisfied and very happy. Including multi-platform games, 2 PS5 exclusives, a bunch of Xbox Series X timed console exclusives, I have a shit ton of games to play before Halo Infinite including the entire main line Halo series so im very hyped right now. Two weeks from tomorrow, I should finally have the Xbox Series X!!! HYPED!!!
