The Hotly Anticipated Halo Infinite Has Been Delayed

A lot of games have been getting delayed over the past few months: Cyberpunk 2077 got delayed more than twice, and lots of other titles suffered similar fates. However, no one expected one of the most hotly anticipated games of 2020 to get delayed, especially since it is the flagship title for the Xbox, and has been for twenty years. That’s right: Halo Infinite has been delayed until 2021. As for why, Developer 343 Industries stated that a major reason for the delay was the shift to work-from-home operations, and that it will give the team the time to "deliver a Halo game experience that meets our vision."

Best Games Being Released In July 2020 Across All Platforms

Historically speaking, July has often been a very slow month for video games, because it’s not near any major holiday that gives people a little extra cash or requires them to go out and buy gifts. But a slow month or not, there’s always a new game being released each month, and July this year actually has quite a few exciting titles to mention. These summer releases are definitely worth keeping an eye on as their debuts approach. That said, it’s worth noting that some of these games weren’t originally supposed to be July titles, but they were delayed and pushed back into it. Not that it makes a difference, ultimately.

The Last Of Us 2 Has Been Delayed Indefinitely Due To The Coronavirus

As one would probably expect by now, yet another video game title has been delayed due to the massive worldwide outbreak of the Coronavirus. This time, Sony has pushed back the release date of the highly anticipated The Last of Us 2.

Sony’s explanation for this delay is that the Coronavirus would prevent “the launch that the players deserve.”

The Coronavirus Has Cancelled Switch Shipments In Japan

Nintendo just recently halted all shipments of both the Switch and Switch Lite in Japan. According to a report from Nikkei, they just can’t keep up with the demand for the console, which is steadily growing due to the Coronavirus and the fact that everyone is staying home to play games.

A Saints Row 3 Remaster has been Announced

Technically the last decade is over, but it was a good ten years for game remakes, reboots and remasters. 2020 has been going pretty poorly thus far, but that doesn’t mean there’s no good news to be had. In fact, the much-beloved open-world crime and comedy adventure Saints Row 3 is getting a remaster for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.
