In game dev (and any big team endeavor) it's essential to define common ground before you move to areas that require more alignment and prioritization.No crafting in Halo Infinite was an example of common ground.I recommend watching the whole interview for context.

Users ran with an article snippet written by someone who wasn't even at the interview. Good luck trying to get people to watch a 90min game dev interview lol (it's pretty insightful though)
I remember in the original post so many people were like "Further proof 343 has no idea what they're doing" like yeah 343 is bungling pretty hard but I highly doubt crafting was ever seriously considered and that this interview wasn't fully honest, and well, here we are.
It probably could have been worded better, but glad to know that crafting was never on the table. Not like my opinion or thoughts changed that much before and after hearing about it.
It didn't need to be worded better, the headline that was posted yesterday was completely taken out of context and if anyone listened to the interview they would have known that.
I even said as much yesterday disputing the misleading headline.
Game Dev: "We decided as a team that we didn't want to create a crafting system for Halo Infinite."
Interviewer: "So what did you and your team do instead?"
Game Dev: "Uuuhhhhhh.........."
I appreciate that the studio didn’t actually try to push for a crafting system. The Forbes article definitely seemed like it was intended to be a catalyst for increasing the outrage surrounding Infinite (and 343 as a whole).
Joe is a class act for politely correcting the author trying to misconstrue what he said on the podcast without actually mentioning them. We really don’t deserve him.
It’s so annoying how little of an issue it is to be a misleading media.
Why do people get mad about such stupid shit. Literally this is a nothing story
Damn. I was rly hoping I could craft a new chief codpiece made out of a grunt face mask.
Give the people what they want.
proof that halo fans will get worked up over nothing
watch this sub completely ignore this and continue the circlejerk
Oh it will happen 100%
People be mad in here when the circlejerk is interrupted.
Number bad. Cosmetics molested my childhood
I still think 343 are out of touch with what Halo is and should be, which is why the crafting thing resonated so much. Glad it’s not that bad, but they have a long way to go.
But, 343 bad.
The Halo sub running on mis-information? Surely not!
So yesterday, the interview itself had about 1,000 views on Youtube while the false story had 6k upvotes.
In the comments, I even gave context from the interview and said that the crafting thing was completely taken out of context.
Funny enough, there's a point later in the interview where Joe talks about how and when they engage with the community because it's very important to pick and choose when to pull back the curtain.
These last 24 hours are the perfect example of why they have to do that, because this sub will eat up misinformation, not bother checking the source, and then get angry about something that was completely made up.
