to the OPs topic, Chris Lee wasn’t necessarily my favorite person ever and fans are trying to scape goat people but honestly the work for infinite is done. All the content is there. Lee was probably asked to resign and Joseph is just there to see infinite thru to launch and hopefully lead the next halo game.
(crazy to think this game should’ve launched in 10 days from now and the content is just now all there)
I full heartedly believe 343i is capable and they have major talent but lack clear direction and strong leadership. I hope the shakeup at 343i sends them in the right direction for the future of the franchise and they ditch the 10 year plan. I believe with a new vision from Staten 343i is going to be on the right track after this rough launch.
—— Also I don’t know why people are coming for Bonnie Ross. Her work for the halo franchise is admirable and with Staten they could really do something special for Halo
I'll admit, she seems like a nice person and cares about Halo, but let's face facts here, Halo under her hasn't been great.... Just talking the bigger games here, Halo 4 overall didn't do well, MCC was a complete disaster and Halo 5 was received so-so. Sale numbers for these games have been "ok" overall, but popularity and staying power overall has been atrocious. As much as I hate saying it, I kind of feel like it's time for new leadership with Halo. I seriously want a Halo game that plays more like the older style and see how it does. For the life of me, I don't understand why they wouldn't try as they have nothing to loose, but I doubt this will happen. Anyways... we don't know about Halo infinite yet either but so far early results, things are not looking the greatest unfortunately.
As far as Chris Lee leaving, he still works for Microsoft just not in 343I's division. He was "encouraged" to step down. I find it hard to believe that if Halo infinites demo was received incredibly well that he would of been "encouraged" to step down.
As far as staten being back, That's good but I don't think he can really have any kind of impact on this game. It would have been more meaningful if this happened maybe 3 years ago. Also, he had a big hand and crack down three and we know how that turned out 😔🙄 .... Now, I do think his bread and butter is Halo but still, I don't think we should see this as him coming in as the savior of the game or anything because I don't think it will be.
