In a recent blog post, the developers at 343 talked about their partnership with AMD and how this will benefit Halo Infinite players and even revealed some plans. As per the developers, “ray tracing is one of our top development priorities post-launch and look forward to sharing more soon.” This means that Halo Infinite won’t get ray-traced reflections and ambiance from day one, which will surely disappoint players.

On the flip side, however, it is great to hear that 343 is working towards the future of the game. Forza Horizon 5 will be shipping with ray-traced graphics and players will get to enjoy the game in full fidelity. To make the launch and the hype around it even bigger, Microsoft and 343 have partnered with several other companies to bring Infinite exclusive items.
