Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox team delayed “Halo Infinite,” the biggest video game planned for the November launch of its new console, partly due to the challenges of working from home during the Covid-19 outbreak.

The change was made “to ensure the team has adequate time to deliver a Halo game experience that meets our vision,” according to a statement posted on the Halo Twitter account.
