Halo: The Master Chief Collection continues to receive content, even with the next major entry in the series launching later this year, and the Season 8 release date is currently on everyone's mind.
Dubbed Mythic, Halo: The Master Chief Collection's Season 8 introduces new and rather different armor sets that Halo 3 players can wear when its release date comes around. A blend of historical inspiration and a series trademark style, they're accompanied by new nameplates, Firefight updates, and more.
Publisher Xbox Game Studios and developer 343 Industries have yet to give Halo: The Master Chief Collection's Season 8 an official release date, but have announced that its first test flight will begin at some point during the week of September 6.
Recent Halo MCC seasons have lasted between 10 and 11 weeks. By this logic, and considering that Season 7 kicked off on June 27, Season 8 should have gone live on September 8. Given the above information, that's unlikely to happen.
Provided its test flight starts on time and goes well, we expect Halo: The Master Chief Collection's Season 8 release date to occur at some point in late September.
Expected Release Date
- GameWatcher Estimation: September 29
Of course, unexpected issues may push the upcoming season's release date even further and we won't know when it will kick off until the developer announces the date.
We'll keep an eye open and update this article as soon as we learn more. In other news, Halo Infinite will not reward XP upon completing matches at launch.
