Halo Infinite, even before it releases in December, has already proven itself to be a bit of a nonstandard production. The fact that the single player campaign and online multiplayer are being segregated into two separate installs, plus the multiplayer being free-to-play and both being available through Xbox Game Pass tells you Microsoft has some kind of special confidence in this game. Apparently, they’re so confident, they’re going to release an early build of the game to tinker with, at least according to rumors. Here’s what we know about the Halo Infinite early access bundle.

Halo Infinite Early Access Bundle

According to a Twitter user by the name of Aggiornamenti Lumia, Microsoft will be releasing some manner of special bundle version of Halo Infinite, as evidenced by a placeholder Microsoft Store page aptly titled “Early Access Digital Bundle.” The page can’t be found if you search the Microsoft Store yourself, so either this Twitter user managed to peek behind the curtains and Microsoft ran damage control, or they’re just talking nonsense. 

Let’s assume, for the sake of intrigue, that the Twitter user is telling the truth about this leak. What exactly would this bundle entail? Obviously, we don’t know for sure, but we have a framework to consult. Previous games, such as Battlefield 2042 and Forza Horizon 5, have had their own early access bundles, which included both the game and a pass to play the game a few days before its actual release in exchange for a slightly inflated price tag.

Some of these bundles also include bonus content, usually stuff like limited-edition cosmetics or in-game consumables, though that’s a case-by-case thing. Since Halo Infinite is releasing on December 8th, we’ll likely know very soon whether or not this leak is the real McCoy.

Halo Infinite releases on December 8 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
