Halo Infinite Director Says He is “Extremely Happy” with the Game’s Multiplayer
One of 343's most well-known devs recently commented on the status of Halo Infinite's multiplayer mode.
There’s still next to nothing that we know about Halo Infinite in terms of specific details. Outside of the game’s reveal trailer from last year at E3 2018, we haven’t seen or heard anything concrete about the project to build anticipation even more.
That said, some developers at 343 Industries continue to talk candidly about the project and every time that they do, they seem quite optimistic about what they’re creating. The most recent example of this happened over this past weekend when 343’s Frank O’Connor chimed in on Twitter to an ongoing discussion amongst Halo fans about the future of Infinite’s multiplayer.
While he didn’t give away any specifics of multiplayer, O’Connor said that he is “confident and enthusiastic” with how the team is approaching multiplayer in Infinite as both an evolution while also still falling in line with the franchise’s legacy.
O’Connor went on even further to say that he is “extremely happy about how Infinite MP plays right now” but acknowledged in the end that maybe his opinion wouldn’t matter to some fans considering he has loved every version of Halo multiplayer. He ended by saying that the best the team at 343 can continue to do is listen to the community moving forward to know what it is that they want in the game.
Even though there isn’t a whole lot to go off of here, I think the best part of what O’Connor said was that the team at 343 is looking at Infinite as both an homage to what fans have loved in the past while also looking forward to what the future of the series’ multiplayer should be. I’m not sure what that melting pot of new and old Halo looks like, but I’m excited to see more of it whenever that might be.
Halo Infinite is scheduled to arrive at some point down the road for both PC and Xbox One. Hopefully, more substantial information for the game starts to be divulged as we continue through 2019.
I’m extremely happy about how Infinite MP plays right now, but it will keep changing & things I like now will change and things I don’t get will improve – but I like every flavor of Halo so far, so in that regard I’m a filthy casual. What I can do tho is listen to this community.— Frank O’Connor (@franklez) January 5, 2019
