  • Halo Infinite is currently being developed by 343 Industries, with support from Skybox Labs.
  • 343 Industries shared a post on Instagram, showing a pug named Gyoza who is being used to record sounds for the game.

Recording sounds for video games (or any work, really) is always an interesting process. When dealing with unknowable, alien worlds and strange creatures, Audio Designers have to get really creative in using what's available to create something strange and new.

As such, this post from 343 Industries on Instagram is a neat little insight into the process behind the scenes. A pug named Gyoza is evidently good friends with the studio's Technical Art Director, and is being used to record different sounds for Halo Infinite. Will these sounds go through post-processing to become the nightmarish cries of an alien beast? Or remain unaltered and used for some cute animal companion? We've no idea but take a look anyways.
