    2022 has been a very busy year for the video game industry. We knew this would be the year when next-gen consoles would hit the market, not to mention the various video game titles that fans were waiting for. However, 2022 has been quite a difficult year to go through. None of us could have predicted what 2022 would bring, making this a pretty tough patch for all of us to get through.

    There are several reasons why 2022 has been a difficult year. However, the biggest one would be the coronavirus health pandemic outbreak that has hit the whole world. This caused several video game projects to be totally delayed out of 2022, which should make 2022 quite rich in video game releases. That said, Microsoft and Sony were able to deliver their next-generation video game console platforms to market.

    While it's hard to get these consoles from your favorite retailers, the rigs are available. With Sony, you have a few third-party exclusives and titles to enjoy while Microsoft was forced to launch its Xbox Series X console platform in the market without its hefty exclusive that was supposed to launch alongside the console. Halo Infinite is the next major Halo installment and it was supposed to launch alongside the Xbox Series X until the gameplay trailer was released.

    It took a few years before 343 Industries chose to bring the Halo Infinite gameplay footage to the general public. The result was lackluster as fans took to the internet and voiced their concerns as well as their frustrations over how Halo Infinite viewed the current stage of development. This prompted 343 Industries to pull the game from the 2022 launch in order to continue developing the title. It's since been confirmed that Halo Infinite won't be available until Fall 2022, and today we learn that 343 Industries head Bonnie Ross is confirming that launch window.

    “2022 will be a big year for the Halo franchise. As we recently announced, Halo Infinite will be released in the fall of 2022. I realize it's been a difficult wait, and I assure you the team wants the game in your hands as soon as possible, but they also want to offer something special... the Halo Game you deserve. Thank you for your patience, your understanding and above all your words of support for the team. I cannot express how grateful I am to the Halo community and the encouragement you have given us. It lifted us up and gave us the fuel to keep going. As you saw in the recent blog post, the team is making huge progress and are so excited to show you more.

    For now, we'll have to wait and see what the updated Halo Infinite gameplay footage looks like. Meanwhile, the studio hopefully has enough time to make the necessary Halo Infinite improvements. In other Halo related news, it has been stated that Halo Xbox 360 legacy titles will lose online support in December 2022.
