While Halo Infinite has been delayed to 2021, the game’s various marketing promotions are rolling out this year. The latest of these comes from the candy bar Butterfinger.
Now through February, people in the US who purchase two Butterfingers can get player emblems for Halo Infinite when it releases in 2021. You’re not limited to Butterfingers, as the promo also applies to Baby Ruth, Crunch, and 100 Grand bars, all of which are made by the same company.
Butterfinger has also partnered with Microsoft to give away Xbox Series X consoles through a special campaign–you can get all the details on both promotions here on the Butterfinger website.
This new promotion is part of the wider campaign from Microsoft where it’s partnering with various candy companies to give people special DLC for Halo Infinite. You can also eat Oreos to earn special Halo Infinite multiplayer skins, while GameStop shoppers also get freebies.
Halo developer 343 Industries has admitted that it’s not very good to learn about Halo Infinite’s multiplayer elements by way of promotions with sugary snack companies, but it is what it is.
“Learning about some big new customization changes coming to Halo Infinite by seeing some marketing materials and reading a few paragraphs isn’t ideal, but with programs already in motion and our date shifting, here we are,” 343 said.
In other news, another lead on Halo Infinite has left the project. When the game is finally released in 2021, the multiplayer element will be free, and that could be a big deal. The entire game, too, will be available at no extra cost for Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
