Halo Infinite now scheduled for release in ‘Fall 2021’


Halo Infinite now scheduled for release in ‘Fall 2021’ – TechCrunch

We already knew that Halo Infinite was delayed until next year. Initially intended to launch alongside the new Xboxes, Microsoft announced back in August that it would instead ship in 2021.

Exactly when in 2021, though, was still anyone’s guess. A new blog post from 343 Industries narrows it down a bit: it’ll be released in Fall.

Assuming they mean Fall in the Northern Hemisphere (which, well, they probably do,) this narrows the launch window to sometime between the end of September and the end of December. So it’ll be a while… but a late game is better than a bad game, right?

343 has a blog post and interview outlining the team’s thinking on the timing (and a bit about what they’re still working on) but it really all boils down to one point: they “needed more time to do things right.”

backstory and future with ‘Kings of Crypto’ author Jeff John Roberts”,”content”:{“rendered”:”

No industry better epitomizes elite tech opinion as blockchain. Ignored for years in its infancy, the industry received intense interest from investors, engineers and the public five years ago, generating some of the most deeply devout evangelists that have emanated from startups since the advent of the World Wide Web and the dot-com boom. Then, it all burned down, but a few companies made it through the flames, among them Coinbase.n

Coinbase today is still valued at a 2018 price of $8 billion, and is expected to go public in the coming months. Despite major controversies around its mission-focused policy and diversity, the company continues to lead the pack of consumer-oriented blockchain and crypto companies.n

That makes its origin story and rise all the more enticing. Jeff John Roberts, a staff writer at Fortune, has put together precisely that narrative in his new book “Kings of Crypto”, published by Harvard Business School Press. Itu2019s the story of Coinbase, Brian Armstrong and the dream of a crypto economy. Given all the recent discussions and controversies swirling the company and Bitcoinu2019s recent record-beating price increase, provides a deeper, more analytical perspective on a complicated subject.n

I sat down with Roberts last month to talk more about the company, the crypto industry at large and whatu2019s next as we head into 2021.n

This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.n

ntttI think the most interesting story right now is that there is this tension because Wall Street and Silicon Valley donu2019t like each other.tttttntntn

TechCrunch: How did you get into this project and decide to write the book?n

Jeff John Roberts: Thereu2019s a lot of crypto books out there, some of them not very good, but I think thereu2019s kind of a first-generation series of books on the subject. Nate Popperu2019s “Digital Gold” is very good, and then the Wall Street Journal guys with “Age of Cryptocurrency“ is a really good explainer, so I was looking for a new way to tell the story. Focusing on a company is just sort of a narrative mechanism, since companies can be a good way to tell the story of a broader industry.n

I used Coinbase as a vehicle because a lot of the early stuff in crypto is hard to understand. I think itu2019s still true, but crypto canu2019t decide if it wants to be a subculture or sort of a mainstream technology and a lot of the early writings on it celebrated the quirky angles. So I tried to tell it as more of a general interest, “Hatching Twitter”-style business story and fortunately thereu2019s a lot of gossip and things in there to recount.n

How did you get interested in crypto originally?n

My own interest came about when I was at GigaOm. Back in 2013, there was a meeting in New York City in Union Square, an event called Satoshi Square every Monday at the little corner of the park. I went down to check it out, and what it emerged to be was a bunch of crypto anarchists selling bitcoin. Some of the other people there though were Wall Street traders in $5,000 suits, which left an indelible image for me. It was really funny watching that collision of cultures, with the mix of greed and counterculture.n

So it was during Bitcoinu2019s first splash into something close to the mainstream that I covered, and then that kind of dried up and went away, as it does, and then it came roaring back in 2015, 2016 and I covered the bubble. And now thereu2019s again been an uptick in interest. So my timing for the book wasnu2019t good in the sense of the pandemic (I got cheated out of my canapu00e9 launch parties) but my timing was good in that a lot of the prices are soaring today.n

Youu2019ve seen a lot in the crypto industry over the years, whatu2019s the most interesting storyline today?n

I think the most interesting story right now is that there is this tension because Wall Street and Silicon Valley donu2019t like each other, but for crypto, they need each other, and itu2019s been interesting watching them kind of dance and find a way to kind of bridge the two worlds.n

Bitcoin is forever promising itu2019s going to change our financial world, but realistically it hasnu2019t, but I think in the coming decade, blockchain really is going to start doing some needed stuff and so that kind of convergence of Wall Street and the Valley [is inevitable].n

Then there are also the big corporates coming in. Obviously Facebook with Libra, but Square and PayPal and Iu2019m sure that Appleu2019s going to get in this game soon because theyu2019re good at privacy, theyu2019ve got all the wallets and they presumably pay a shit ton in transaction fees, so I think thatu2019s the coming story and whatu2019s interesting to me. And then Coinbase sort of sits right kind of at the center of all that, so theyu2019re a good vehicle to tell that story.n

You chose Coinbase as one of the focus companies for the book. Why them?n

I mean, thereu2019s a lot of recent cultural stuff we can talk about, but it was interesting to me because going back to what we talked about earlier: Do you want to be a rebel in a subculture or do you want to actually make a difference?n

I think Coinbase was the first and the best at the latter, and Brian Armstrong, who even among many Valley CEOs is a weird dude, he saw early the need to make this mainstream. That tension goes on to this day in the crypto world u2014 and also within Coinbase u2014 between the purest sort of libertarian vision of holding your own wallet versus the practicality. I think Coinbase is very astute in seeing thatu2019s where things are going and building it out that way, building sort of the crypto version of online banking.n

So I think that theyu2019re always telling you, u201cWeu2019re the white knight of cryptou201d and so on, and then of course Andreessen Horowitz and Fred Wilson had a big role in shepherding it that way, but it was the right call and theyu2019ve largely executed, which I think is really interesting.n

What was it like building Coinbase early on? Were there some fun stories from that time?n
