The first indication that we could well be coming close to an in-depth reveal and locked in release date comes by way of the game’s classification down under.
The Australian Classification Board has submitted their finalised classification of Halo Infinite, which indicates a near-finalised version of the game has been submitted by Xbox Australia for assessment and classification by the board.
Halo Infinite‘s classification is M15+ for “violence, online interactivity and in-game purchases”. Not that it comes as much of a surprise, but we should definitely expect some microtransactions given the classification details.
The most interesting thing to consider about the timing of this classification is that we don’t actually have a firm release date for Halo Infinite yet. With Gamescom set to kick off on August 24 and a PvE multiplayer and technical test done and dusted, 343 Industries could well be ready to really lift the curtain on the game, and hopefully announce a release date.
The rating also details the languages available in the game: Arabic, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Swedish localisation.
How awesome would a late-September/early-October release be? Here’s hoping for some big news to come out of Gamescom!
