According to an insider, Bonnie Ross would not have left the leadership of 343 Industries for family reasons but would have been fired.
Bonnie Ross left the helm of 343 Industries and therefore the development of Halo Infinite a few days ago, saying she had to leave for family reasons. Well, according to insider Brad Sams, she was actually fired by Microsoft .
As we have reported, the Redmond house has decided to restructure the entire team and it is clear and evident that this is an operation due to the disappointing post-launch support of Halo Infinite , especially considering the importance of the franchise for the Xbox platform.
Sams said that, according to multiple sources, the departure of Bonnie Ross took place as part of the announced restructuring of 343 Industries, and that the recent “revisited” Halo Infinite roadmap was the proverbial straw that broke the jar.
In fact, between the local cooperative canceled and Season 3 postponed , things for Halo Infinite have not improved over time and the difficulties of the studio led so far by Ross are clear.
