Instead of a lengthy blog post, the confirmation that it is not canceled comes from a cheeky Twitter reply when one fan asked 343 Industries Community Manager John Junyszek if there was any truth to the cancelation rumors. His reply? “Nope, please let me enjoy the holidays” accompanied by silly emoji:
Nope. Please let me enjoy the holidays 🤪

His response was met with mixed reception with some gamers being glad to hear that the flagship franchise will be more available to those that couldn’t (or had no interest in) scoring an Xbox Series X or S, while others were pleading with the team to scrap last-gen versions to purely focus on the future of the franchise.
I was one of the few that seemed to be genuinely impressed with the gameplay shown earlier this year
Regardless of where you stand on the previously revealed gameplay for the upcoming Halo, it looks like we can all rest easy that the team is giving itself more than enough time to make sure its perfect with its late 2021 launch. Do you agree with those saying to scrap it and focus on the new generation of systems, or are you happy to see it be available for all? Sound off with your thoughts in the comment section below!
