Fortunately, there's a couple of things you can do to help ensure you remain unspoiled for when the game launches. You can mute various words or phrases on Twitter, as well as use the advanced muting options. For a more complete firewall against spoilers, you can download Spoiler Protection 2.0. It's a Chrome extension (that also works on Microsoft Edge from the same link) that filters out results on the internet based on key phrases you decide. Do be aware that taking these steps will make it a bit tougher to follow official information on the game.
The current Halo Infinite beta dates and times originally ran for four days from July 29 through August 1. This was then extended through August 2. Halo Infinite is currently slated to launch in holiday 2021 and will be available on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, Xbox Cloud Gaming, and PC.
