Halo Infinite director and longtime 343 executive Chris Lee has left the project. In the past two years, he is the second top director on the project to part away from Halo Infinite.
Speaking to Bloomberg, Lee said, “I have stepped back from Infinite and I am looking at future opportunities. I believe in the team and am confident they will deliver a great game and now is a good time for me to step away.”
Chris Lee was a part of 343 Industries since 2008 overseeing the Halo series. He has been a partner studio head since 2016. According to Microsoft, “Chris Lee remains a Microsoft employee and while he has stepped back from Halo: Infinite right now, we appreciate all he has done for the project to date.”
Halo Infinite’s development has been unstable for quite some time. Tim Longo, the creative director left 343 Industries in August 2019, along with Mary Olson, executive producer on the project.
Halo Infinite doesn’t have a fixed release date yet. According to 343, however, the game should be out by 2021.
