Would they really do this when FH5 just released and is doing so well?.
I mean i suppose they could think its different audiences but this will def eat into Horizons momentum.
I dunno. I feel like Gamepass is changing peoples gaming habits. I am usually switching between 4-5 games at a time just like I do with Netflix tv shows/movie.

Yeah, this rumour has a lot of corroboration outlined quite well in this reddit post:

My Halo Elite Series 2 controller arrives on the 15th, to boot. Damn it, I'm letting myself get excited...

Too much fun
I'm already struggling trying to get through these newly dropped games before Halo comes out, and now I don't get the 3 weeks to do it anymore?

I give up.

It's F2p and I'm sure it's already done. I'm more interested in seeing what the community will look like in 6 months after launch.

Can I just say that I flagged on GAF months ago that the multiplayer icon/install for Halo Infinite is marked as ‘Game Pass’ in the Store and Game Pass app, despite it being free to play.

This was the plan all along IMO, give Game Pass subscribers early access from Nov 15th to Dec 8th.

I see so many people across the internet saying

“Why would it be Monday, why would they do that to battlefield”

“Why would they release it now….Warzone will pull everyone away”

As a COD and Battlefield person I say release it Monday. Halo is such a different game and has such a different audience that hates all the modern improvements COD and Battlefield brought to FPS market.

I loved the flight for halo but end of the day my brain is too trained to aim down sights and with descoping that will send people back to COD and Battlefield regardless.

each series has enough of their own fans to sustain their communities. They really don’t have fans across all 3 and if they do it’s a small minority

You can preload the multiplayer on PC now via the MS/Xbox app. It's happening.

Hopefully Steam opens up soon.

Early access for gamepass ultimate subs. That how you get the maximum amount of money
Nov 15 is so early when the official release is Dec 8.....

They would also have to make this early access available for those that pre-ordered the full game because that would not be fair to make it available early for only gamepass ultimate subs.

I think this is a smart move because the last thing they want is a bad launch like what happened with the master chief collection

Would be smart, especially with battlefield and CoD having issues. Love this idea! Can focus on campaign in December

Not gonna play before the release of the single player campaign, anyway.. 🤷‍♂️
Who would seriously want to spoil the game for themselves?

Like 95 percent of the gaming community.

Why would you spoil the game playing the multi player version? Heck I even played cods for years before eveb trying the single player. I played MW2019 over 300 hours and never touched single player.

How does MP spoil the SP? They are completely seperate entities.

My only concern is that the MP will be full of shitty MTX and regressive systems like Halo 5 was with its Warzone (SP?) mode. Fucking hated that shit. If they can get back to Halo 1-3 or hell, even Reach, style MP. I will be happy.

Fable? Holy fuck. Xbox is 20 and they are paying homage in the greatest possible way.

Eh, depends on how good the new Fable game is. If the rumors are true, its going to be some shitty GAAS/MMO style game.

I really hope it isn‘t and it is more like a polished/improved version of Fable 1/2.

Playground games is not going to cock this up.

That is my hope. But I am still going to be very cautious going into it. I have been burned far too many times on „classic returns“ that only ended being shitty MP, low budget, or GAAS titles. This isn‘t an MS issue, but an issue with major gaming publishers across the board.

Seems that this is widespread enough that they'd deny it by now. No one the team has said anything?

Microsoft is not fucking over EA and BF2042
Yeah... I don't think MS will take the risk of pissing off EA and Activision by suddenly eating into their sales.

But if I'm wrong and they do it anyways, I welcome it. Halo MP is the only shooter that interest me this season.
