In a recent report from Bloomberg, 343’s head of FPS development has decided to part ways with Halo infinite and 343 Industries.
Lee tried to get ahead of a storm of rumors saying “I believe in the team and am confident they will deliver a great game and now is a good time for me to step away.”.
343 Behind the scenes
It’s worth mentioning that Chris Lee is not the first major 343 figure that leaves Halo Infinite ahead of its release.
Tim Longo, the creative director, has left the project in 2019. Mary Olsen, a lead producer, left shortly after. These resignations sparked initial concerns regarding Halo’s future.
Halo Infinite is still indefinitely delayed.
After its rocky gameplay reveal last July, it didn’t earn the fans’ trust, with several apparent graphical issues.
Halo Infinite was meant to be a launch title for the Xbox Series X & S, Both of which are releasing on time.
Meanwhile Halo Infinite is yet to have any launch window, and the fans are yet to see any gameplay since the unfavorable July reveal.
The game is still expected to be released in 2021. Hopefully the constant stream of departures and delays result in a great launch for the game.
