However, the fans have to wait a little longer for better or worse, because the responsible development studio 343 Industries recently decided to postpone the release to next year. Like studio boss Chris Lee in an official statement explains, there are various reasons for this – including the effects of the corona pandemic. Among other things it says:

"We made the difficult decision to postpone our release to 2021 to ensure the team had enough time to deliver a Halo gaming experience that fits our vision. The decision to postpone is the result of several factors that drive Development challenges have provided – including the COVID-related effects that have affected us all this year (…) It is not sustainable for the well-being of the team or the overall success of the game if we do it this Christmas season would publish.
