It could still be Halo, assuming MS had a change of heart about releasing the game without campaign coop and or forge. Though that too seems really doubtful. We're getting the next multiplayer technical preview in roughly a week and the campaign has been announced for December 8th. With the way Grubb says welcome to delay season I would make an educated guess it's not Halo, as Halo has been delayed plenty already. Everyone associates Infinite with delays, so why would Grubb say welcome to delay season for Infinite? I dunno, just seems unlikely. I would go with Elden Ring like you said or something else.seems elden ring the obvious choice. no way Halo can be delayed again. Avowed/Hellblade would be weird.
Only reason I don't think it's Kena is because they've been regularly counting down/announcing more stuff like subtitles an such all week lol, and so has the Epic Games Store:100% Halo. The rumors are mostly true. Game is still a mess.
That game needs more time in the oven. But can team Xbox afford it?
Also think Kena is not ready. I mean its there first game and a very ambitious one at that.
Why not? They still have Forza Horizon 5 for this year and Halo would be another big game for 2022 to compete with Aloy/GT/GOW and they would have the chance to release the game with all of it's features. With Game Pass and free multiplayer they are not that dependent on the christmas sales.That game needs more time in the oven. But can team Xbox afford it?
I doubt Activision would ever even THINK about pushing a COD Back lol, but for what its worth the COD Vanguard beta got ripped by quite a few publications.Which companies care enough a finished game to warrant delaying it?
Activision and EA certainly don't, so I doubt BF2042 or COD get delayed.
Halo makes sense, but they took the PR hit by dropping co-op and Forge for launch. If the release itself was shaky, seems unlikely they'd have done that. However, they were prepared to pull the trigger on last year's mess, so who knows there?
Elden Ring also makes sense. Game feels like its being hidden at this point, there might be a reason for that.
If it's some obscure game no one gives a shit about - like Goodbye Volcano High - then Grubb needs to fuck off.
A racing game is very niche. Having that as the only must-buy exclusive since release of the series X in November last year would be a joke.Why not?

Well, to be fair, Halo Infinite was the laughing stock of the entire industry last year due to a very public delay. So, this wouldn't be the first time it's 343i's punchline.
