Halo Infinite is not coming on 9 November, according to confirmation from Microsoft.
Yesterday, Xbox Brazil made a post on Twitter, which has since been deleted, stating that the upcoming title will head to PC and Xbox consoles from 9 November.
The tweet translates:O lendário combate multiplayer de Halo retorna reinventado e evoluindo ao longo do tempo com atualizações sazonais, novos modos e mapas e conteúdo focado na comunidade. Halo Infinite chega em 9 de novembro aos consoles #XboxSeriesS, #XbosSeriesX, Xbox One e PC.
Halo‘s legendary multiplayer combat returns reinvented and evolving over time with seasonal updates, new modes and maps, and community-focused content. Halo Infinite arrives on November 9 to consoles #XboxSeriesS, Xbox One and #XbosSeriesX PC.
It’s already been pointed out that the release date mentioned is the same as Forza Horizon 5, meaning it's likely a mix-up on Xbox Brazil’s part.
Microsoft later confirmed the tweet was a mistaken one.
A Microsoft representative said:
Today we confirmed a Holiday 2021 release. We will share our launch date later this year.
