This comes from Halo Infinite community manager John Junyszek, who took to Twitter for a decisive rebuttal of the reports on the timing of release of Halo Infinite and platform support. Apparently, everything is still on schedule for a Halo Infinite 2021 release on Xbox Series X and Xbox One.
Original story follows ...
Halo Infinite could be a single Xbox Series X title, as the developers plan to ditch the Xbox One version due to performance issues.
The rumor comes from VGC through user Resetera (and a previously accurate leaker) Sponge . According to Sponger, Halo Infinite of 343 Industries "struggle to achieve performance around 900p on the older Xbox One S console ". Therefore, 343 plans to ditch the Xbox One and Next Generation version only on the Xbox Series X .

"The idea is to change at the engine level how the assets charge, set RT by default (improve / " unlockillez "some assets), improve geometry, post-processing, and add more CPU-related interactivity. " Sponger also writes that Microsoft could push Halo Infinite beyond 2021 if it believes the game would give it more production time. "It's pretty complicated over there with the decisions, but they are convinced they have to create the best Halo game ever, " they assert.
If so, Halo Infinite would break Microsoft's promise that all Xbox Part 1 titles for the next few years would be released on current and next-gen consoles, even if that promise was technically already broken during the Xbox Games Showcase , when Several recently revealed title trailers have confirmed that they will only be released on Xbox Series X.
The Halo Infinite Delay was announced earlier this month, confirming that the The old Xbox Series X launch title would be pushed back to 2021 "to give the team enough time to deliver a Halo gaming experience that is our vision. "Stay tuned to see if this delay will also cause 343 Industries to remove an Xbox One version of Halo Infinite.
