Verlon Roberts, an actor who says he’s playing Spartan Griffin in Halo Infinite, has apparently leaked the launch date on the Fadam and Friends podcast, saying that “now it’s pushed ’till later November this year.” Apparently, he both did voice acting and motion capture work, so his role should be fairly notable in Halo Infinite. He describes being in a “big open warehouse” and “wearing spandex” and having to use his imagination in order to put himself in the world because there’s not much for him to physically work with. He says he’s sharing some scenes with Master Chief, so we’ll have that to look forward to as well.
Who is Spartan Griffin?
He first appeared in Halo: Shadows of Reach, a novel penned by Troy Denning that launched on October 20, 2020. On their not-so-detailed Halopedia page, Fireteam Taurus has members Spartan Vettel, Spartan Oshiro, Spartan Dimka, and Spartan Griffin. They are a Spartan fireteam under the United Nations of Space Command. Much like how Blue Team made a return for Halo: Guardians it seems like the series is going to further expand the cast of Mjolnir wearing Spartans present in the game. Whether Griffin is playable is up in the air.
The actual release window has been up in the air since Halo Infinite got delayed last year from its original launch with the Series X|S. We know it’s coming Fall 2021, so a November release date sounds fairly plausible, considering the game is content complete.
