Halo Infinite’s Development Is Going Smoothly, According to 343

There was a recent panic on the Halo subreddit about longtime 343 Industries producer Mary Olson leaving the studio while Halo Infinite is still in development. A Reddit post that received over 5,000 upvotes mistakenly said that Olson became the creative director of the game after the previous creative director, Tim Longo, left 343 in August.

Now, with her recently leaving 343 for indie studio Midwinter Entertainment, it seems like the latest Halo game is in trouble.

Naturally, this caused a panic on the subreddit until a 343 employee clarified what Olson and Longo’s roles were for the game and also assured Halo fans that Halo Infinite’s development was going well. The employee, Reddit user Unyshek, said that Olson was never a creative director for the game and explained the role that producers play at 343.

Additionally, the employee said at the end of their post that “there is no creative dilemma inside the studio, and there’s no writing on the walls.” The Reddit post also mentioned that Halo Infinite is still on track for its holiday 2020 launch window for PC, Xbox One, and Project Scarlett.
