However, the first look of the game ended up disappointing fans quite a lot because of its visuals. But 343 Industries considered the complaints from the fans and postponed the release of the game to work on it further.

After months of radio silence on the matter, we finally have some more inside news about the upcoming title. On this month’s “Inside Infinite”, a recurring series that provides insights into the production of the game, the team working on Infinite answered some FAQs.

The panelists for this month are part of the game’s Sandbox Team. In order to explain what they do, they shared their vision, which is:

“WE CREATE WEAPONS, VEHICLES, PLAYER MECHANICS, AND SYSTEMS THAT ARE INTUITIVE AND REWARD PLAYER MASTERY. 

WE RESPECT HALO’S LEGACY BY PARTNERING WITH OUR PLAYERS WITH THE SAME HONESTY AND INTEGRITY WE USE TO CRAFT OUR GAMEPLAY.”

…We are working on a new vehicle that is looking pretty hot. This new vehicle will sit nicely between the Warthog and the Scorpion in terms of power level, so it should ignite some new discussions on what vehicle to take to a mission. We just got our initial concept, which really lit a fire under the team to get it into flighting, so stay tuned!

Quinn DelHoyo of 343 industries, added, “One of my favourite sandbox items is a vehicle that we haven’t shown yet, but I’m sure I won’t be alone with my favouritism once we do reveal it to the community. This vehicle isn’t totally brand new, but it has received a fresh coat of paint while awaiting its triumphant return to Halo”.

All this news sure pumps up the hype surrounding the game. We already were excited about the upcoming Halo title, but all this new information just upped the ante.
