Halo Infinite Has Gone Gold

After years of development and a lengthy delay, Halo Infinite is almost ready for launch.


Halo Infinite's campaign mode has officially gone "gold" ahead of its launch in December. During a livestream broadcast on Friday, community director Brian Jarrard confirmed this.

Gold means development on the game is officially finished. For Halo Infinite, this means physical releases are being prepared for launch and Microsoft is getting the game ready for a digital release.

"That basically means we're locked and loaded. The campaign is in the tubes and on its way to players around the world," Jarrard said. He also confirmed that Halo Infinite will see a global simultaneous launch worldwide, starting at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET on December 8, and shared an image during the showcase that confirms when the game launches where you live.
