343 Industries “Committed to at Least Monthly High Level Updates” for Halo Infinite Starting Next Week

Halo Infinite

Halo Infinite community director Brian Jarrard has revealed that there will be monthly updates on the game, starting next week.

After one user on the Halo subreddit asked about the lack of information, Jarrard replied (his Reddit account being ske7ch343). While defending how much had been revealed so far (especially considering lockdown orders), Jarrard stated there would be “committed to at least monthly high level updates.” The first of these will be an “Inside Infinite” trailer next week.

“Has it though? Not saying it’s right or a good thing, but considering we went 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 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.”

343 Industries had previously sated they had “work to do” with the game’s graphics, after some disliked them during the game’s gameplay premiere. The news was sure to be damning for Microsoft, as the Xbox Series X lost one of its “killer apps” on for launch. The game was later delayed (and refined).

The game’s director Chris Lee then left the project in October 2020. He joins other high-profile departures with lead producer Mary Olson (October 2019), and creative director Tim Longo (August 2019).

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.
