Microsoft have officially announced a change at the top of Halo Infinite leadership. Halo veteran Joseph Staten who was one of the leading forces in creating Halo has joined Halo Infinite team as a project lead for the Campaign.
Rumours about Halo Infinite development issues have appeared shortly after Microsoft announced that the game has been delayed to 2021. Some even claimed that the Xbox One version of the game could be dropped and that another delay is pushing the game to 2022.
Luckily Microsoft have denied these rumours and have reiterated that the game is coming in 2021 to both Xbox One and Xbox Series X. To help with the development of the game, Microsoft have made quite a move, which many Halo fans will certainly appreciate. Halo veteran Joseph Staten will be returning to Halo team as a project lead for the Campaign.
"As product lead on Halo Infinite, Joseph will be focused on supporting the campaign team's existing, talented, creative leaders and ensuring they have everything they need to create an awesome Halo game," Microsoft announced.
Staten was one of the leading forces in creating Halo while working at Bungie for all of their Halo games, and even Destiny before he joined the Xbox Games Studios in 2013. States is one of the key people in creating Halo's iconic storylines, characters and the overall universe so it's safe to say that these are exciting times for many fans who cannot wait to play Halo Infinite.
Staten tweeted that he is thrilled to join the team and help them ship Halo Infinite.
All in all, we hope this change in leadership will help 343 Industries deliver the best possible Halo game since many fans have been concerned with various rumours and reports about the development issues.
Halo Infinite is coming sometime in 2021 to PC, Xbox Series X and Xbox One.
