Halo community manager John Junyszek took to Twitter to debate the latest rumor that Microsoft and 343 Industries have dropped the state-of-the-art version of Halo Infinite.
Earlier this week, some media reported a rumor suggesting that the future Halo Infinite will be exclusively for the latest Microsoft consoles, Xbox Series X | S and PC. The source of this rumor? A LinkedIn CV from a UI designer on the game that only mentioned the development on the latest generation consoles with the PC. It’s not the best source, but as expected, things started to run from there.
While some may have been pleased with this change of platform due to concerns about the latest generation version of Infinite retaining the next generation versions, the rumor has already been dismissed on social media.
“No”, the community manager 343 he simply replied when asked about this matter.
Not. Please let me enjoy the holidays 🤪
