In response to a Reddit thread called “The lack of info is worrying me” 343 Industries announced that the next update on the development of Halo Infinite will take place this week.
Community Director, Brian ‘Ske7ch’ Jarrard, reminded the impatient fan that the development team shared a lot of information in December. It’s important to mention that the Reddit thread is based on the incorrect information of the writer. 343 Industries releases a new episode of the Inside Infinite blog post every month.
Considering we went through 12-month stretches of total darkness and our last update was on December 8, I don’t think there’s any cause to worry. Keep in mind that many of us around the studio were out of the office for 2 or more weeks to end the year and then it takes time to get back into the swing of things, etc. We also confirmed our Fall release window in that update, so now it’s clear we have some runway ahead of us and some time to go.
That said, we’re committed to at least monthly high-level updates and the next “Inside Infinite” is coming out this week! This month we’re talking with members of the sandbox team to share some insights into their vision for Halo Infinite and the work they’re doing. To manage expectations, this won’t have world premier big screenshots or huge things like a date announce, but our goal is to offer our community more context and insights into our team and the game we’re making while we’re all awaiting the larger beats and full marketing machine later this year.
Halo Infinite was meant to showcase the Xbox Series X|S potential on the launch day of the console, however, COVID-19 caused major setbacks for the studio and the quality was not there, as it was revealed in an embarrassing gameplay trailer.
343 Industries announced that the game was inevitably delayed citing that “it is not sustainable” to release the game in 2020. The studio head, Bonnie Ross has promised fans that Halo Infinite is “the Halo game you deserve”. Inside Infinite is meant to reveal the vision of the development team and reassure fans that the project is going in the right direction.
Earlier this week it was reported that Xbox is “actively drafting plans” for multiple beta tests later this year.
Halo Infinite is coming to Xbox Series X|S, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Game Pass for no extra charge.
