After a large amount of criticism aimed at what doesn’t look like next-gen graphics, Halo Infinite’s narrative director Dan Chosich took to Twitter to explain that this will not be ignored by the team.
As expected with the usual comment section, the outrage has ranged between angry, to hate-filled anger, to sarcastic.
One of the fans had a pretty brutal response, claiming 343 Industries are dragging Halo and all of Bungie’s earlier work through the mud, which prompted Chosich to respond.
“I’ve been in your shoes. I know what it’s like to have expectations built + feel let down. I want you to know your voice matters + is heard. You’re not falling on deaf ears. I always want to live up to the legacy that Bungie pioneered. I personally care a lot about honoring that“, he replied.
@tefferlee @PlutonForEver @DanChosich @Halo you have taken the initial reaction to halo infinite and all this excitement and you made a mockery out of the game with shitty textures and worse lighting effects that's your new engine?? 5 years for this?

Halo Infinite is set for launch in the fourth quarter of 2020, so there’s a lot of time to change the graphics, which seems to be a large talking point. Not all fans are sold on the grappling hook idea either, but compared to the graphics – this sounds like a really minor talking point.
