A senior developer on Halo Infinite has tried to assure fans that complaints about the game are ‘not falling on deaf ears’.
A lot of people were unimpressed by Halo Infinite when it was finally unveiled during the Xbox Games Showcase, and that’s meant that developer 343 Industries has had to deal with a lot of furious fans insisting that the game is the worst thing ever.
One particular screed by Twitter user Jassem complains about ‘empty promises’ and ‘lies on top of lies on top lies and more lies’, adding that 343 has ‘made a mockery out of the game with s***y textures and worse lighting effects that’s [sic] your new engine’.
For some reason he copied narrative experience director Dan Chosich in – even though his work had little impact on whether anyone liked the demo or not – and even more surprisingly Chosich responded on Twitter.
‘I’ve been in your shoes’, said Chosich. ‘I know what it’s like to have expectations built and feel let down. I want you to know your voice matters and 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 honouring that.’
The associate creative director of Halo Infinite also liked Jassem’s tweet, although they did not comment.
Although Jessem’s tweet was relatively reserved compared to many complaints there’s no obvious reason why 343 chose to reply to him over anyone else, other than that he’d copied in Dan Chosich.
It’s also open to interpretation as to whether Chosich accepts any of Jessem’s complaints or whether he agrees with them, since he would certainly have no input on things like the graphics engine.
At the very least though, it means that 343 are not trying to hide from the fan response, as some developers chose to when there are complaints, and seem intent on turning around current opinion on Halo Infinite.
