Anyone part of the Halo Insider program was able to sign up for a multiplayer technical test of the upcoming Halo Infinite, and the tech preview itself 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 this tech preview 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
Per a forum post on Halo Waypoint, the technical preview was estimated to begin July 29, sometime after 12 PM PT/3 PM ET in the evening PT. This came to pass before 7 PM PT/10 PM ET, although the Halo Waypoint website is under heavy load and many users are unable to retrieve their invite.
