It’s been an eventful month for Halo Infinite and developers 343 Industries. It started with a gameplay reveal that definitely didn’t go as well as it should have, and since then, it’s been a barrage of major announcements, a delay in 2021, speculation, leaks, and controversy.

Most recently, insider info alleged that Microsoft and 343 Industries were planning on dropping the Xbox One version of Halo Infinite and make it exclusive to the Xbox Series X, owing to poor performance on the base Xbox One hardware. The same report also claimed that Microsoft were even considering delaying the game once more, this time into early 2022.

Now, however, John Junyszek, who is the Halo community manager at 343 Industries, has come forward to deny those reports. Taking recently to Twitter, Junyszek called out “fake leaks”, saying that there are “no plans” to change the game’s currently planned 2021 releases, or the platforms that it is scheduled to launch for.

A lot could change between now and whenever in 2021 Halo Infinite is supposed to come out, but there you have out- the official public-facing stance of 343 Industries for now is that no further delays are planned, and the game is still coming to Xbox One. Whether things change down the line remains to be seen.

Recently, reports also talked about development troubles at 343 Industries that had led to a rough couple of years for Halo Infinite, but 343 Industries have responded to and refuted several of those claims. Read more on that through here.
