343 Industries’ upcoming Halo Infinite is one of the most highly-anticipated releases of the year, and fans will be glad to know that the game has recently been issued an M rating by Australian Classification Board yesterday. The story was originally reported by VGC, who also mentioned that Playground Games’ upcoming Forza Horizon 5 was also rated last week.
If Forza Horizon 5‘s rating and release date are anything to go by, this development gives some insights about the potential release date of Halo Infinite. Assuming a week’s difference between both these ratings, it’s quite possible that Halo Infinite might be targeting for a mid-November release date – which marks the 20th anniversary of the franchise.
Halo Infinite‘s recent flight test has had mostly positive reception by fans and critics alike. Microsoft has also recently confirmed a conference at this year’s Gamescom, and fan speculation on the matter suggests that Halo Infinite will be a part of the presentation and might receive a release date.
