Developed by 343 Industries and published by Xbox Game Studios on the 15th of November 2021, it is the sixth main installment to the Halo series. Microsoft surprised their fans by dropping the multiplayer beta eight days before the scheduled launch that is on the 8th of December, 2021, for the single-player campaign mode.
The single-player campaign story continues right after the events of Halo 5: Guardians that unfold after Master Chief is reunited with the Fireteam Osiris but also with the Arbiter and Catherine Halsey, the scientist that created the Cortana and the Spartan program that made him.
