The Halo Infinite Tech Preview is finally here, and you’ll need to know when it starts and ends to get started!
Halo Infinite is one of the most anticipated releases of 2021, and it’s easy to see why. After Microsoft made the call to delay Halo’s release date from 2020 to 2021, it’s clear that 343 Industries has used that time well.
Just looking at the Halo Infinite 2020 vs 2021 graphical comparison, it’s like night and day. But after another year of waiting, we’re finally going hands-on with Halo Infinite later today.
The full Halo Infinite Tech Preview will be live throughout the weekend, but 343 Industries has scheduled some specific play times for fans too. In fact, gamers will have to tune in at very specific times in order to catch the action.
And if you didn’t sign up this time around, here’s how to register for the next Halo Infinite Tech Preview!

Halo Infinite Tech Preview End Date & Time
Finally, after a weekend of bot-slaying action, all good things must come to an end. The first Halo Infinite Tech Preview will end on Monday, August 2, at 10 AM PT.
By Sunday evening, PVP matches may even be available in Halo Infinite, the developers are teasing. And the bot difficulty levels may increase throughout the trial period too.
Meanwhile, players will be able to unlock every item in the Halo Infinite Season 0 Battle Pass in this time. Check out everything we learned in yesterday’s Halo Infinite Tech Preview live stream, including multiplayer details and more!
We’ve also got more details about Halo Infinite’s Battle Pass, Seasons, Live Service content and more! And Xbox head Phil Spencer reveals why Halo Infinite doesn’t have a release date yet.
But one major content creator is already calling Halo Infinite’s lack of a Battle Royale a huge missed opportunity. Although a few fans certainly feel similarly, we’re definitely enjoying the return to a classic Multiplayer experience.
