- Halo developer 343 Industries has confirmed that the Halo Infinite gameplay demo was an older build.
- Specifically, the build was from "several weeks ago."
- 343 Industries also stated that multiple graphics elements were still being worked on, and that feedback has given them new considerations.
Halo developer 343 Industries has published a blog post that, among other things, confirms that the Halo Infinite gameplay demo shown off during the Xbox Series X July event was using an older build. Specifically, 343 Industries stated that it was from a "work-in-progress several weeks old." 343 went on to say that a variety of graphical systems are still being worked on prior to the game's full release.
This news was in direct response to the concerns over Halo Infinite's visuals, which many thought looked flat and lacking in detail. 343 also noted that this feedback "brought new opportunities and considerations to light that the team is taking very seriously and working to assess." Hopefully by the time Halo Infinite comes out, things will look more visually impressive than they did during the Xbox Series X show.
Halo Infinite is expected to launch on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Windows 10 PCs for $60 in the Holiday 2020 season.
