Some key tidbits have been posted below.
“The team also heard feedback loud and clear on the amount of time spent playing as the Master Chief inÂ Halo 5.Â InÂ Halo Infinite, the game will focus on the Master Chief and continue his saga after the events ofÂ Halo 5.
I know waiting can be hard for folks who are excited for more info about the game. We are taking the time we need to make the right game and are making changes to how we approach things this time around. The goal of the entire 343 Industries team is to make a great Halo game for our fans that also invites new players into our franchise. We will have some new and unexpected directions to take folks in and I believe the way we achieve that is to build alongside our community, iterating and improving as we go.”
