343 hasn't confirmed for how long the next Halo Infinite multiplayer preview will run.

With only two weeks separating between now and the chance to see how much progress 343 has made on Halo Infinite, fans are undoubtedly excited. It's worth noting that this is the second preview 343 Industries has done for Halo Infinite. The first Halo Infinite technical preview ran from July 29 through August 1, with 343 promising to do at least one more following the rocky start to the first one.

The next Halo Infinite multiplayer preview might be the last before the game's launch in December.

After much speculation and rumors, earlier this year 343 finally announced that Halo Infinite will launch on December 8. The game will come a little over a year after Halo Infinite was promised as a launch title for the Xbox Series S/X. Despite the game's long delay, 343 confirmed that the latest Halo installment is not going to be complete from the get-go. The game won't have a campaign co-op or a Forge mode until later in 2022.

Speaking of launch, an earlier leak from a reputable data miner claims that Halo Infinite will have 23 maps available from the start. Dataminers have found other unannounced details about Halo Infinite as well. This includes everything from a photo mode to helmets.

There is also a rumor floating around that Halo Infinite and Destiny 2 will cross over at some point, although this one doesn't come with any solid proof.

With Halo Infinite not due to launch for a few months, we can expect the rumor mill to keep on churning out more Halo-related intel before we finally get the game in our hands.
