As far as fans are aware, the Halo Infinite release date is still down for holiday 2021 – which Microsoft reconfirmed at E3 2021 in June – but otherwise, we still don’t have a firm date. This could have been due to a leak by Krispy Kreme and Xbox this week.
As of this writing, the first Halo Infinite beta was still running. There are all kinds of spoilers, as well as the possibility that multiple campaigns could be leaked due to the technical preview. However, this leak is via an unusual combination of Halo and Krispy Kreme and Xbox.
Krispy Kreme announced, in advance of the Halo Infinite release, that they will sell a Halo-themed doughnut starting July 30, which is essentially a regular chocolate-covered doughnut but with Master Chief’s image on it. However, the interesting thing is that Xbox Mexico sent out a tweet about the new doughnut, with the message “Why wait until November, if we can begin the festivities now?”
The tweet going on to note that the collaboration is also to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Halo series and Master Chief – as the original Halo: Combat Evolved launched November 15, 2001. The November note could therefore be entirely about the anniversary, so don’t take this as confirmation – but if Halo Infinite is still definitely launching Autumn or Holiday 2021 then November would make a lot of sense.
?Por que esperar a noviembre si podemos comenzar los festejos ya?

The Halo Infinite multiplayer game is, by all accounts, a lot fun. It will launch for free alongside the main campaign. There will also be a battle pass and a campaign pass that includes multiple story expansions. We’ll wait to see if all of this is available in November.
