Halo Infinite is shaking up the franchise with the introduction of wild animals and underwater exploration, but there are other changes taking place at the studio too. Today, Multiplayer Design Lead Lawrence Metten announced that he was leaving 343 Industries on Twitter. Metten has been with the team for five years, and his tenure at Microsoft is roughly ten years.
Metten issued the following statement on social media.
It's unclear what he plans to do next, but we wish him the best of luck in the future. Halo 5: Guardians is regarded as one of the best multiplayer experiences in the series, and Metten played a major role in it. 343 Industries has many developers working on Halo Infinite's multiplayer, so progress on the sequel won't be affected. We'll keep you posted as soon as Metten's replacement is announced by the studio.

Faaaaaar from one of the best multiplayer experiences in the series... It had the highest player drop rate than any halo so it's literally one of the worst. It had a faster player drop rate than halo 4 sooo... Glad he's gone to ruin other games
Halo 5 is easily regarded as one of the worst multiplayers in Halo. With this guy gone maybe Halo Infinite has a chance at being a good game
