Anyone part of the Halo Insider program was able to sign up for a multiplayer technical test of the upcoming Halo Infinite, and the second tech preview is rapidly approaching. Members have already received invitations through email, and an additional email plus a message through the Halo Waypoint website will give them access to the flight. The start date and exactly how these tech previews will work have been a bit confusing, but once the flight is live, the rest of the preview is scheduled out.

Halo Infinite tech preview flight start date and time

The second technical preview is estimated to begin Friday, September 24, sometime after 10 AM PT/1 PM ET. Like with the first tech preview, the Halo Waypoint website is under heavy load and many users are unable to retrieve their invite.

This tech preview will have limited times for matchmaking, unlike the previous one. The tech preview will be available to play on these dates:

  • Friday, September 24 to Monday, September 27
  • Thursday, September 30 to Monday, October 4

The following play times for matchmaking from the Halo Waypoint blog — off hours, players can access the menu, Training Mode, and Weapon Drills.

  • 10 AM to 2 PM PT / 1 PM to 5 PM ET
  • 5 PM to 9 PM PT / 8 PM to 12 PM ET

Halo Infinite tech preview flight end date and time
