Halo Infinite developer 343 promises to be “much more communicative” in future

Though will be careful to make sure news is "ready".

343 Industries will be “much more communicative in the coming months” when it comes to Halo Infinite, the developer has recently pledged.

“We know you’re all very eager to know what’s going on with Infinite and due a myriad of circumstances in the wake of our date change, we’ve been quiet longer than we like,” 343’s John Junyszek wrote in a recent update. “We’re working with the team to provide an end of year update and establish plans to be much more communicative in the coming months.”

At the same time, the update asserted that, “we want nothing more than to answer your questions. We can’t wait to go into deep detail about the rich story and characters in the Halo Infinite campaign, to dive into exactly how customization and progression works and shows up visually in the multiplayer experience, and provide a detailed look at the incredible depth of content across the entire game. But to do it right and do the game – and the talented team crafting it – justice, we need to show rather than tell.

“Of course, this begs the question, ‘When are you going to show all that?’ The best we can say right now is ‘when it’s ready.’ That’s not the same as ‘when it’s done,’ but it’s still ‘not yet.’ When we get close, we’ll be sure to let you know ahead of time. Your questions will, eventually, be answered.”

Halo Infinite was planned as a launch release for the Xbox Series S & X on 10 November 2020 before news of its delay was confirmed in August of this year. Citing COVID difficulties and addressing concerns from a preview of the game in JulyHalo Infinite moved into a 2021 launch window.

Speaking to the delay, Xbox head Phil Spencer said it was “disappointing to people… [and] disappointing to us,” but ultimately was “the right decision”.

Halo Infinite is expected on Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X in 2021, part of the Xbox Game Pass subscription program.
