Halo Infinite director reportedly leaves the project

Halo Infinite director and longtime 343 executive Chris Lee has left the project.

In July, 343 Industries released a video of "Halo Infinite" that looked underwhelming and below the fans' expectations.

He is the third senior development executive to leave the project in two years.

I have stepped back from Infinite and I am looking at future opportunities. The upcoming title in the franchise, Halo: Infinite, headlined the Xbox Games Showcase and had raised a substantial amount of hype around it since the announcement.

Halo Infinite is a game of great importance for Microsoft. The delay is hurting the company's console launch but it's better to release a game late than to release a title that fails to meet expectations.

Developers have been provided with the updated price tier charts to show the increase in pricing for their particular apps. Apple has formally introduced that App Store costs will likely be elevated in six nations within the subsequent few days .

Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier wrote that Lee confirmed the news on Wednesday. "I think in the group and am confident they'll deliver a wonderful game and today is a fantastic time for me to step away", he explained. "Chris is still a Microsoft employee, and even though he has dropped his role at Halo Infinite, we appreciate all that he has done on this project to date".

Just to recap the arduous journey Halo: Infinite has been on so far, development began back in 2015 and nothing was heard until 2018 when it was properly announced.

Lee oversaw production on Halo Infinite during its development cycle at 343 Industries.

Lee is now the former executive programmer from the 343 Industries to depart the job since August 2019, once the game's programmer team dropped its creative manager Tim Longo and executive producer Mary Olson. For now, all we know is that the game will be arriving sometime in 2021, hopefully sooner rather than later.
