Halo Infinite has been a recent topic over the last few weeks. Recent layoffs at Microsoft have affected various members of 343 Industries, the Halo development studio. Since then, fans have been curious about the future of Halo and 343 Industries.
A few days later, 343 Industries confirmed that the studio would continue to work on Halo games for the foreseeable future. However, a new survey from Microsoft could prove to be worrying for the latest game in the series, Halo Infinite.
One of the questions in the survey asks players if they are done playing Halo Infinite.

Other questions in the survey are related to 343 Industries and the Halo community’s satisfaction with the development studio. These questions include the studio’s communication efforts and player trust based on delivering the roadmaps and release dates provided so far.
Microsoft is also seeking opinions on classic Halo game modes that fans would like to see in Halo Infinite. Survey respondents can pick from Infection, Griftball, Juggernaut, and more beloved classic game modes.
It is no secret that Halo Infinite has been disappointing regarding a consistent live-service model. At launch, the game was missing legacy features like a co-op campaign and a plethora of game modes.
However, fans were promised that Halo Infinite would be supported for several years to come. In addition to the slow pace of updates, 343 Industries has also backtracked on earlier promises like split-screen co-op, leading to many disappointed fans worldwide.
As such, the survey seems to be worrying about the future of Halo Infinite and 343 Industries. Microsoft might just be considering a fresh start with a new Halo game, but that remains to be seen.

For now, Halo Infinite will continue to see new content. The highly anticipated Forge mode is already available in Beta, with players having come up with some impressive custom creations. As such, Forge could end up being the saving grace of Halo Infinite, providing the big break that 343i and Microsoft have been looking for.
A Halo Infinite Battle Royale is also rumored to be in development, but no official announcements have been made so far.
