A few days ago, Halo Infinite was rated by the Australian classification board, giving a bit more reason to think release is coming very soon. Microsoft is yet to confirm a release date but Halo Infinite was given an M rating for Violence, online interactivity, and in-game purchases. There is a moderate amount of violence in Halo and the detailed explanation behind this rating explains this, and also states that there is mild bad language, however no drug use, nudity, or sexual content.
This rating means the game is due to release at the same time as mega-titles from Battlefield and Call Of Duty, making 2021 one of the best years for FPS in quite some time. Of course, Halo would ideally like to avoid a clash of the titans but until we get some official release dates, who knows.
Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer has stated that they plan to release the game for the holiday period in the final quarter of 2021, which smells a lot like a November release, the same time of year the CoD franchise loves to release their yearly re-skinned titles.
Seeing as there is a chance for more playtesting in the near future, other countries may produce Halo Infinite ratings very soon!
What Does The ‘M’ Rating Mean?
“M rated games are not recommended for children under the age of 15”
