For fans that are well-acquainted with the current state of Halo Infinite, the game is still well into development following the decision made last August to push its release into 2021. More specifically, the game is slated to arrive sometime in fall later this year – fans are hungry to nibble as much information from the bones of this game leading to this autumn.
In the first installment of ‘Inside Infinite’ that 343 Industries conducts each month to spare new information on the coming entry, Halo Infinite is on a brighter path than last year with periodic testing being made on the game in preparation for launch. However, what has gone off the record until discovered much more recently is the involvement of Xbox Game Studios.
In that, one of the internal teams assisted with the game’s development according to LinkedIn. As per a tweet made by @bogorad222 on Twitter, it is revealed that The Coalition Level Artist Adam Bodden – when operating under the developer – assisted in development for Halo Infinite.
Alongside presumed development for Gears 5 since being contracted for The Coalition in 2018, Bodden was involved in development for Gears 5: Hivebusters alongside 343 Industries Halo Infinite. Additionally, Game Informer reports that Hugo Gutierrez Mares, a VFX artist at The Coalition, also listed efforts in Halo Infinite on his respected LinkedIn as well.
While many view the instance to be a sign of struggle for 343 Industries in terms of the state for Halo Infinite, additional help from supporting studios are fairly common – even under the same label. Back in 2018, Bethesda’s MachineGames disclosed to be welcoming aide from Arkane Studios on then-approaching Wolfenstein: Youngblood ahead of the game’s release. There is some irony now that both are a subsidiary of the Xbox company.
In other relevancy to the Halo franchise, Deadline reports that the coming Halo television series is now airing exclusively to Paramount+ instead of the initially planned Showtime. The production is told to be release sometime in Q1 2022. You can read the full report by heading here.
