Xbox Head Talks About Halo Infinite Player Disappointments It’s been a difficult year for Halo Infinite players. The game had a very promising start when it came out at the end of 2021, but fans have been getting more and more upset about the lack of content and updates that are worth their time. Even though 343 Studios is working hard on new content to keep players interested, Xbox knows that players aren’t happy. In a new interview with the Friends Per Second podcast, Xbox Game Studios chief Matt Booty addressed the game’s recent troubles and also explained how the business is striving to turn things around.

“As is clear these days with a game like Halo Infinite, shipping the game is just the beginning.” There’s got to be a plan for sustaining content and a plan for regular continued engagement, and we just fell short on the plan on those fronts. “So we’ve really retrenched, we’ve got some changes in how the team is built up, we’ve got some changes in leadership, and we’ve just got to really get refocused around that sustained content plan and making sure that we’re bringing a regular update of stuff for the players,” added Booty.
While the game is not in a situation that Xbox appears thrilled about, there are some huge adjustments coming in the near future. Halo Infinite’s winter update is planned to debut on November 8th, and it will include a considerable amount of new content, as well as various quality-of-life enhancements. Players can look forward to new maps, a beta for the long-awaited Forge mode, and improvements to Battle Pass progression. It’s still not clear if 343 Industries will be able to keep adding new content like this, but it seems like a good sign for the future!
