In 3DJuegos we did not give any type of coverage to that information because it was very doubtful.
Without a doubt, one of the releases that fans of Xbox they look forward to is Halo Infinite. The game missed the launch of Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X as it was planned as an exit game, but its delay to improve it It was the right decision, as Phil Spencer pointed out. The responsible study, 343 Industries, has been in the spotlight in relation to what it is like to work there.
Eric Lin’s statements were taken out of context and are not trueAnd it is that, in recent months, they have emerged rumors on the Internet that talk about crunch, bad atmosphere or other bad practices in the studio. This gossip has not been confirmed, but a few days ago there was a new chapter in this story. According to some media (in 3DJuegos we did not echo because we saw dubious information), a former worker reportedly talked about the crunch on 343i.
Eric Lin, an artist who worked at 343 Industries, reportedly commented on some negative aspects of working in the studio in a statement in Chinese. For example, the excessive ambition of bosses, that employees suffered crunch, that Halo Infinite will have less content than planned and other comments that you can see in the following tweet from the famous journalist Jason Schreier. But all of this It is not true and it was taken out of context.
Well, Lin has come to the step of all this information to deny them. The creative has been really affected by the situation. Lin has commented that some media they should not extract isolated information of their statements without understanding the context and without asking him first on the question itself. Lin has said that he has contacted many media and youtubers who gave that information to rectify, but that has not received a response of any kind.
Lin believes that a study cannot be judged by one person’s experienceLin has uploaded a video to the Chinese social network Bilibili in which he indicated that you can’t judge an entire study by a person’s experience, both positive and negative. Lin has qualified the alleged crunch practices and explained that this it wasn’t really like that: they had hard days, but no crunch. He wanted to give a positive and first-person vision of what it was like to work in the industry, so that young people work in video games, but his entire explanation was decontextualized.
Lin has also explained in the video that he cannot be a news source by Halo Infinite. In addition, he has clarified that his knowledge about the video game is limited. The developer has once again opined that cree that Halo Infinite is a ambitious project, but he has insisted that it is only his view of the situation and it means nothing. Lin explained that we can all clearly see the great job 343 Industries is doing improving Halo Infinite.
Lin’s alleged statements were translated by the community from chinese and it seems that the misunderstanding began there. The analyst Daniel Ahmad | He has also expressed his opinion and commented that sometimes some media get information without contrasting or based on comments they find on the Internet that on many occasions they don’t mean anything, something that he suffers from time to time.
After these clarifications, Jason Schreier wanted clear out also to share the wrong messages. The journalist explained that he has heard similar accusations from other workers and so he thought it was something remarkable to mention. Still, Schreier recalled that he has not written any article about it and that he fully understands Lin’s complaints.
Schreier has indicated that despite the denial, he believes that many of these problems they are real in the industry and in the Triple A, not just in Halo Infinite. The journalist has also been very angry that, according to him, Xbox and Halo fans have been bothering and harassing you after sharing Lin’s out-of-context statements.
