The day has finally arrived. A year delay, a three week early release of multiplayer, and now everyone will finally be able to get their hands on the Halo Infinite campaign, and make up their minds about 343’s latest installment, and the guideposts for the next generation of Halo content from Microsoft.
You are probably waking up to check if you can play this very moment, but Halo Infinite is doing a global launch where the game releases simultaneously in all regions. So, what times does Halo Infinite launch?
- 10 AM PT
- 12 PM CT + CST
- 1 PM ET
- 3 PM BRT
- 6 PM GMT
- 7 PM CET
- 9 PM AST + MSK
- 2 AM HKT
- 3 AM JST
- 5 AM AEDT
- 7 AM NZDT
So, essentially usual daily challenge reset time for most regions. While Halo Infinite is single player and has no co-op, online or otherwise, I would expect there possibly to be some login issues as everyone floods to it, although 343 did do a good job preventing that from happening too much during the multiplayer launch, so maybe not.
It is pretty bizarre to think that multiplayer was also supposed to be launching today. It really reinforces just how separately packaged these two halves of Halo Infinite are. Besides the different release dates, Infinite is free-to-play and the campaign is either $60 by itself, or requires a Game Pass subscription, no doubt how the majority of players will play.
It’s going to be really hard to measure the success of Halo Infinite in a traditional way, as sales will mean relatively little with its Game Pass inclusion, so expect to see some metric like “hours played” that will not mean all that much. The campaign also has zero monetization, as that’s all jammed into multiplayer instead.
Halo Infinite campaign reviews arrived a few days ago, and it’s scoring pretty high with an 86 on Metacritic. I was definitely on the lower end of reviews with a 7.5, but again, that’s just the campaign, and I’d score multiplayer significantly higher. My main issue was that the last third of the game felt too unfinished and stopped too short, but we’ll see if anyone agrees with me or not.
All my progress has been wiped from my review build, so I am diving in to replay the entire campaign again later today just like everyone else. I will work on an “early advice” tips article that will go live later today.
It’s going to be a big day for Halo fans, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what everyone makes of Infinite. See you out there.

Apple requires employees to have proof of a COVID booster as Omicron spreads, according to reports – Euronews
Apple will require retail and corporate employees to provide proof of a COVID-19 booster shot, The Verge reported on Saturday citing an internal email.
Starting January 24, unvaccinated employees or those who haven’t submitted proof of vaccination will need negative COVID-19 tests to enter Apple workplaces, the report said.
The Verge said it was not immediately clear if the testing requirement applies to both corporate and retail employees.
“Due to waning efficacy of the primary series of COVID-19 vaccines and the emergence of highly transmissible variants such as Omicron, a booster shot is now part of staying up to date with your COVID-19 vaccination to protect against severe disease,” the memo read, according to The Verge.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request from Reuters for comment.
Many companies in the US have been strengthening their COVID-19 rules, mandating vaccination and delaying back-to-office plans as the Omicron variant increases infections across the country.
This week, Facebook parent Meta Platforms mandated COVID-19 booster shots for all workers returning to offices. It also delayed U.S. office reopenings to March 28, from an earlier plan of January 31.
Alphabet Inc’s Google on Friday said it was temporarily mandating weekly COVID-19 tests for people entering its US offices.
A report by The Information said Amazon.com Inc has offered its US warehouse workers $40 (€35) to get a booster shot.
The mid-2012 MacBook Pro 13-inch will soon become obsolete – Vaughan Today
Apple will declare the mid-2012 13.3-inch MacBook Pro a “legacy” on January 31, according to an internal memo intercepted by Apple. Mac rumors. This is the last step before it becomes permanently outdated: it means that Apple will stop providing compatible parts to Apple Stores and Authorized Service Centers. It will always be possible to get a repair in the event of a breakdown, but within the limits of the available parts: this will therefore be increasingly difficult, up to the complete obsolescence that must be declared in a couple of years. You can refer to the list of old and outdated products on this page.
The mid 2012 13.3-inch MacBook Pro is the last model to feature an integrated CD/DVD drive. It was on sale until October 2016 to provide a more affordable alternative to models with Retina displays, which explains this late obsolescence. It is particularly reliable and offers interesting upgrade possibilities for people who want to replace the optical drive with a second volume. It is a standout model. Its time and about to give it up.
