News of Halo Infinite's delay back in August was disappointing for fans of the franchise.
The title was set to be released alongside the Xbox Series X/S as a console selling title.
However, due to development challenges as a result of COVID-19, the game was delayed until 2021.
There were rumours after this announcement that the game may be released as late as 2022.
343 Industries have claimed these rumours are false.
Now, a high profile member of the Halo Infinite team has decided to step away from the project.
Halo Infinite's Director Has Stepped Away From The Project
Chris Lee, Director at 343 Industries, has reportedly resigned and decided to step away from Halo Infinite.
In an interview with Bloomberg, Lee stated he has placed the responsibility of Halo Infinite on the current team.
"I have stepped back from Infinite and I am looking at future opportunities...I believe in the team and am confident they will deliver a great game and now is a good time for me to step away."
It's hard to tell if Lee's resignation is to be of any concern regarding Halo Infinite.
The game's official gameplay reveal back in July was met with mixed reception from fans.
However, a delay is always better than a game being released before it is finished.
Let's hope 343 can deliver a quality Halo title that utilises the hardware of Microsoft's next-gen console.
In the meantime, the next-gen graphical upgrade for Halo's Master Chief Collection should keep fans of the franchise busy.
