The Halo Infinite gameplay video footage showed to be uninspired to a great deal of waiting fans. In reaction to the visual complants, 343 Industries got to work enhancing their video game for next-gen gamers by postponing the video game to Fall 2021. Neill Harrison, director of art management at 343, specified “Much of the feedback we spoke with the neighborhood lined up with our own views and work we were currently devoted to doing around things like indirect lighting, product reaction, foliage and tree making, clouds, level-of-detail shifts, and character fidelity.” He would go on to state that “the feedback was humbling, and it likewise pressed us to take a look at extra chances for enhancement.”

343 Industries studio head Bonnie Ross included that the hold-up is totally worth it in a vacation post published on the Halo Waypoint site, “I understand the wait has actually been challenging, and I ensure you that the group desires the video game in your hands as quickly as possible, however they likewise wish to provide something unique…the Halo video game you are worthy of…the group is making incredible development and is SO excited to reveal you more.” 

I personally can’t wait to dive back into Halo once again. Like Liana, I believed the gameplay trailer was amazing and the beautiful vistas of Infinite were especially attracting; I can’t wait to check out the video game world and uncover more Halo tradition! The year-long hold-up will ideally offer 343 sufficient time to tweak the visuals and have the video game all set for its Fall 2021 release.
