Halo Infinite on the cusp of being delayed for another year. After the somewhat disastrous showcase during Xbox Games Showcase, it now looks like that 343 Industries might not be able to deliver Halo Infinite by the time Xbox Series X launches.
An anonymous person posted on 4chan stating that a huge fight broke out in 2019 which led to a lot of lead people leaving the 343 Studios and Microsoft had to bring in people from Bungie who were the creators of the Halo franchise.
This led to numerous conflicts of interest which led to increasing conflicts between Bungie and 343 Industries and Bungie left midway through the development of Halo Infinite.
Issues were reminiscent of that of BioWare’s Anthem and just like that a lot of confusion at the top rendered the development of the game in a lot of issues, from no core idea stemming out of it.
There is a possibility of 343 being taken off from the development of Halo Infinite and the entire project being offered to Bungie once again. Microsoft is desperate in not wanting to make the same mistakes and deliver another disappointment like Halo: Guardians.
While this seems plausible, there is a huge chance that this might not come true but as we have seen in recent times that work crunch issues and a lack of vision have derailed the production of major AAA titles costing millions of dollars and a lot of people losing their jobs.
We couldn’t confirm nor deny the authenticity of this news but, after the Xbox Games Showcase gameplay demo, it seems like there have been some issues affecting the development of Halo Infinite.
Halo Infinite has been in development from 2015 right after Halo Reach was released and with a lackluster performance, it is possible that Microsoft wouldn’t want to rush the game to deliver a half baked product which does not live up to the Halo brand.
Halo is one of the biggest videogame franchises in the world with Microsoft making it their biggest brand to push the next-gen consoles.
