I am a day late. But I want to continue my updates to my predictions to Halo: Infinite’s release date.
Please read this whole post before responding. I will not respond to those that clearly did not read the whole thing.
NO LEAKS NOR FACTS WILL BE PRESENTED HERE. THESE ARE MY PREDICTIONS.
Original Thread (This thread will be referenced a few times. Please go here to see further detail.)
To start with, here are my predictions:
All Tuesdays and Thursdays in October AFTER (and including) October 14th. I say the 14th over the 12th due to Monday the 11th being Columbus Day and shipping companies in the US may be closed that day. So, the physical editions may not arrive before hand. Anything before that wouldn’t truly feel like Fall 2021 and more of a random date.
I no longer believe November 11th to be the release date. It is Veterans Day and, unless I am mistaken, no Halo has launched on a Holiday before. None in the US at least. Therefore, I believe November 9th or 16th to be likely. With the 16th being the most likely.
I will continue to stand by my belief Halo: Infinite will NOT launch on November 15th, 2021. My Original Thread goes into full detail as to why this won’t happen. But I will sum it up here.
No Halo game (side games included) have ever launched on ANY weekday or weekend other than a Tuesday or a Thursday. There is no reason for Halo to deviate from this. Bonnie Ross’s Tweet is so vague, people are itching to link it to Infinite when I think it is merely acknowledging Halo: Combat Evolved’s 20th Anniversary. I am more willing to believe Halo: Infinite will launch on the 9th and have an in-game event than on the 15th. 343 will want people playing MCC and Combat Evolved on November 15th. Which is why I believe November 16th is most likely for a November release. The release says “Fall 2021,” not “Holiday 2021.” October is more likely than November. For further detail, please read the Original Post. (Do not comment on that thread. It is older and I am pretty sure it would be violating rules for reviving old posts.)
Any objections? Any ideas? Anyone think they can add to this? If you think another date is possible, what do you think, and why?
(FYI: Simply saying I am wrong and Halo will launch on the 15th is unnecessary. Please give reasons why it will other than Bonnie Ross teased it or Halo: Infinite is the “Spiritual Successor” to Halo: Combat Evolved. I have heard these reasons too many times.)
