As you might have heard, there are some rather big Halo Infinite rumours doing the rounds on the internet at the moment about the anticipated title's potential launch date, the possible inclusion of a battle royale mode and the suggestion the game will be broken up into chapters.
Halo's community director at 343 Industries, Brian Jarrard, has taken notice - calling these "fresh" rumours "unfounded". He's aware this could all be solved with some "real" news and says the team is currently in the process of a year-end update to keep fans informed.
Following this, Jarrard shared a series of tweets, thanking the community and at the same time asking for some "patience and understanding" as the team goes about making "the best Halo game" it possibly can.
As an avid fan of many properties (games, movies, TV, music) I 100% understand and appreciate the passion the Halo community has. I also understand the frustration when things don’t go the way you want or it feels like you’re somehow being wronged or not heard.
I want to first just acknowledge how fortunate we are to have such a legacy and such a long-standing community that cares so much. It’s not easy but I’d rather have people care - and even be mad - than not give a damn. Thank you.
The Infinite road hasn’t been easy. This year in particular has been incredibly challenging. We have hundreds of developers who truly only want to make the best Halo game they possibly can. It pains all of us when the community is hurting.
No update is going to satisfy everyone. We want to turn the corner as 2020 comes to an end and leave the challenges of this year behind us and look ahead to 2021. We are committed to bringing you along on this journey, we just ask for bit of patience and understanding.
