With the end of March 343 industries did what it always does today towards the end of each month and released a new update Halo Infinite. While this latest update doesn’t include any essential details about the project (such as a release date, a gameplay trailer, or other vital information that some fans are sure to crave), it has given us more insight into a very specific area of development of the game.
In the latest edition of In Infinite343 Industries decided to improve the audio work they work for Halo Infinite. Similar to previous sections of this ongoing series, the blog post has a number of responses from those that are being worked on Halo Infinite They talk about their own area of expertise and what they want to do for the project. This time the 343 audio team had time to shine.
The blog, which is pretty extensive on its own, has a number of high-level and very specific plans in which 343 must implement audio Halo Infinite. Overall, the team has been collecting feedback from the community environment Halo 5 since the game launched which means there are a lot of ideas out there about what fans want to see Infinite.
Since audio is addressed in this blog, this of course also means that music is being talked about. Music is arguably the most recognizable aspect of the Halo series and has been vital to the franchise since its inception. And although the composers working on the series have changed over time, 343’s audio director Sotaro Tojima says he’s trying to convey a sense of “hope” with the score Halo Infinite. “The original games had dark elements in their stories too, but the music was mostly focused on the lighter side, which worked very well,” said Tojima of the studio’s goal of using some of the old Halo games. However, whether or not the soundtrack will be popular in the eyes (and technically in the ears) of fans remains to be seen.
Halo Infinite The release is slated for late fall, though a recent report indicated that the game will be out in November specifically. This has yet to be justified, but the title itself will be published Xbox One, Xbox Series X./ S and Pc when it hits the shelves.
