Since the release of Halo Infinite was pushed back to 2021, several executives have left the development team. However, according to Xbox CEO Phil Spencer, the game is fine and fans shouldn’t worry.
Speaking to GameSpot, Phil Spencer said that he was not worried about staff leaving 343 Industries, and that the postponement of the project’s release date after a failed July demo gave the public a different picture of what was really going on.
“I’m not worried about 343 [Industries]– said the executive director of the gaming division of Microsoft. – I really think that in the long run, staff turnover is great because we need people who are truly motivated by what they are working on. “…
He added that Microsoft took the feedback it received following the July demo of the game seriously, both in terms of release date and expectations. “On our part – on my part – it was an omission to open our July presentation with Halo Infinite and reschedule the date in a couple of weeks– commented Spencer. – I pay attention to the feelings and emotions of our fans and clients. We set an expectation that you would receive the game at launch, and then had to change that expectation shortly after the launch – that was a mistake. “…
Microsoft recently recruited Bungie veteran Joseph Staten to lead the Halo Infinite campaign. He, along with Bonnie Ross and Pierre Hintze, are currently directing the creation of the sci-fi shooter. And Spencer believes in them.
Halo Infinite will be released on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
