Halo Infinite is a huge undertaking as the next chapter in the Halo franchise, with 343 Industries already being assisted by Sperasoft and Skybox Labs. Today, Certain Affinity revealed an ongoing partnership with 343 Industries and confirmed the studio has been working on the game since December 2019.

"Halo Infinite has huge long-term ambitions, while also giving a respectful nod to the franchise's past. This is an exciting combination. Given our own deep roots and long-time connections to the series, we couldn't be more excited to help 343 realize this vision," said Max Hoberman, Certain Affinity's Founder and President.

Certain Affinity has a long history of assisting with the development of Halo games, being founded by a former Bungie employee and aiding the development of Halo 2, Halo: Reach, Halo 4 and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, among many other titles.

Halo Infinite is delayed to some point in 2021, a decision that was made instead of releasing the game in parts. When it does eventually arrive, the multiplayer will be completely free-to-play and supports 120 FPS on Xbox Series X.

  • At this point, they may as well give Bungie a call for assistance 😁
  • Newegg shows $44.99, is there a code or coupon?
  • Why don't they try and do more of this in house? Not a fan of outsourcing as I know being a dev in my company it leads to fence throwing and lack of ownership which comes back to bite you in the long term as well as killing morale. 343 should hire more FTE's, Last of Us 2 had over 1100 people working on it though admittedly they weren't all working for Naughty Dog.
