Taken with a large helping of salt, rumors are beginning to surface late today that Halo Infinite’s multiplayer could be playable in just three days on November 15, 2021.

Despite a planned release on December 8, 2021, for the full Halo Infinite storyline experience, an antsy industry influencer is pointing towards an “early” release of the free-to-play multiplayer portion of the game.

While its only rumors, the idea that Halo Infinite multiplayer could launch as early as Monday does have some traction as it would highlight the 20th anniversary of the franchise.

We can’t speak to @NateTheHate2’s “independent” verification and launching the multiplayer portion of the Halo Infinite experience weeks before the actual game could theoretically hurt sales of the game; there are several real reasons the Xbox division might want to have that gameplay available on Monday.
