Community manager John Junyszek explained that there are “two key areas that are discussed around the community – the overall style of art and visual fidelity.”
“Based on our knowledge of Halo 4, Halo 5 and Halo Wars 2 ̵1; along with strong community feedback – we decided to return to the hereditary aesthetics that defined the original trilogy. With Halo Infinite, we return to a more “classic” art style, which was a key message that goes back to the first revelation that it gathered enthusiastic and positive responses. This means a livelier palette, “cleaner” models and objects with less “noise”, although it does not mean less detail. While we appreciate that this may not be everyone’s personal preference, we stand for this decision and are happy to see it resonate with so many fans around the world. “
“The second topic under discussion includes visual fidelity. Negative feedback in this area includes comments about characters and objects looking flat, simple and plastic, lighting a dull and flat feeling and object popping up. We read your comments, we saw the homework examples of retouched content and yes, we heard the ratings of Digital Foundry.In many ways we agree here – we have work to do to address some of these areas and increase the level of fidelity and overall presentation for the final game. used to launch the demonstration of the campaign was underway a few weeks ago, with various graphics and game systems still being completed and polished.Already in progress, other aspects of the feedback revealed new opportunities and considerations that the team takes very seriously. We don’t have any solid answers or results to share yet, but the team is working as quickly as possible on plans to address some of the lives around the details, clarity and overall fidelity. The team is committed and focused on ensuring that we have a beautiful world for players to explore when we start. “
As for multiplayer beta / flying, Junishek reiterated what 343 CEO Chris Lee said last week, saying their multiplayer beta plans were affected “largely because of the challenges of working from home during COVID -19 “.
343 is not sure that Beta will happen, but hopes “to have the opportunity for wider hands before launch”.

The microtransactions at Halo Infinite were confirmed back in 2018, but Junyszek reassured fans that Halo Infinite “will not include real money boxes”.
This should come as a relief, especially given the level of player customization that will be part of Halo Infinite. As Unishek said, “If you liked the level of armor customization options in Halo: Reach, you’ll be happy.”
