Halo Infinite is releasing December 8th. This was announced during the Gamescom Opening Night Live stream. During this stream 343i also revealed a cinematic reveal for the first season.
”Commander Agryna knows firsthand the difference a Spartan can make—a difference never more important than now. Humanity’s forces are scattered. Desperate resistance efforts have continued to fall short on multiple fronts, from Cortana’s relentless martial law to the expanding power and ambition of Atriox and the Banished. But there is hope: a new generation of Spartans, training in secret to become unstoppable. In this cinematic introduction to Season 1 of Halo Infinite Multiplayer, get a glimpse into the Academy Commander’s own heroic journey and what it truly means to be a Spartan.”
