Microsoft’s Halo Infinite isn’t coming out until 2021, but one retailer recently updated its website with details on new special edition of the game.
In the US, Best Buy will sell a $105 USD bundle that comes with the standard edition of the game, as well as a SteelBook case and a Master Chief PVC statue. It also includes a $10 reward when you pre-order, though the store is not yet accepting orders. The page is very sparse at the moment, so we don’t know further specifics like the exact dimensions/details of the statue.
This appears to be the first Halo Infinite special edition bundle, and it’s expected that more will be announced in the lead-up to the game’s release in 2021. And if Microsoft is cooking up a special-edition Xbox Series X/S console, a safe bet is that it might be for Halo Infinite, but this is just conjecture at this stage.
In other news, Microsoft recently downplayed the impact that Halo Infinite’s delay to 2021 might have on launch sales of the Xbox Series X/S consoles. “We are not reliant on massive exclusive titles to drive console adoption,” a spokesperson said.
The Xbox Series X/S is scheduled to launch on November 10, and pre-orders will begin from September 22. The S model costs $300 USD and the X edition is going for $500 USD, and those prices are intentionally low. Xbox CFO Tim Stuart recently explained that Microsoft went with relatively low prices to help create a large install base more quickly.
