Halo Infinite was announced at E3 2018, but ever since, 343 Industries has kept everyone in the dark regarding the game. After a long time, we have finally got some news regarding the game and it seems that the design of Master Chief that we got to see in the teaser is not the final version.
Dan Chosich, Halo Infinite’s narrative experience director, opened up about the game and he talked about the new Master Chief design. The following is what he had to say:
“It is by far the coolest Master Chief we have ever done, or that anybody’s ever really done.”
While the design is inspired by the previous games it will be different and unlike anything that we have seen so far. The final model has yet to be revealed so we will have to wait and see what 343 Industries has in store for us. The developers talked about what the game is going to be like and also showed some concepts that might or might not make it to the final version of the game.
With Master Chief, the developers wanted the fan to know that he is there but wanted the fans to fill in the blanks on their own. The developers talked about how revealing Master Chief in any Halo trailer is difficult because everyone is going to have a different opinion regarding how it was done and how it could have been made better. So this is the angle 343 Industries went with for the teaser for Halo Infinite.
The developer also showed an early concept for the teaser trailer that we saw at E3 2018 and we can see that while some things did change, the overall idea was the same.
It will be interesting to see what Halo Infinite will have to offer and what fans will think about it when we have another trailer as we get closer to release.
