Halo Infinite has had a rough year on the content and development front. With the fanbase on split after the announcement of couch co-op and couch multiplayer by the team, many are upset.
Not to mention, many have pointed out that the multiplayer seasons by 353 Industries aren’t adequate. While the gates of one feature close, another gate with opportunity opens up, as players can expect new Halo Infinite content soon.

Speaking with VentureBeat, the well-known Texas-based support studio Certain Affinity talks about their work on an unannounced Halo Infinite project.
CEO Max Hoberman, in the interview, says that for more than two years, the team has been working on Halo Infinite, “doing something that–[353 Industries] very prescriptive about what we can say.” He said:
“we’re doing something unannounced, and we’re doing lead development on that unannounced thing, from conception and design. It’s something big and new for the franchise. But I can’t say any more about it.”
Hoberman also says that nearly a hundred developers are working on the unannounced project. This unannounced project could be the rumoured Halo battle-royal, which Windows Central reported back in January.
Certain Affinity has had past working relations with 353 Industries, helping them to create content for Halo: Combat Evolved 30th Anniversary on Xbox 360. They also worked closely on Halo 2 in The Master Chief Collection. They also helped in creating Halo Forge.
Given the relationship between both companies, it only makes sense for the studio to come forward and work on Halo Infinite content. Maybe we’ll see something new and refreshing in the title after a long while.
