Glassdoor – 343 Industries Company Review
Our story centers itself on Glassdoor. Glassdoor website platform that is “built on the foundation of increasing workplace transparency, Glassdoor offers millions of the latest job listings, combined with a growing database of company reviews“. Somewhat similar to LinkedIn to give context.
There are several reviews of 343 Industries on Glassdoor which brings some legitimate cause for concern where it comes to development of Halo Infinite. Specifically where it comes to focus on the Slipspace engine itself, which has been billed as new, cutting-edge, and built to carry the franchise over the next decade. An additional concern is that the entire scope of Halo Infinite has been allegedly reduced, all of this necessitated to meet the hard deadline of the Holiday 2020 release.
The problems don’t seem to end there either with complaints around a high turn-over rate within the company. In fact, some allege that most of the team that put Halo 5 together are no longer with the company.
Some of these reviews go on to discuss the toxic work environment at 343i, with many simply working there long enough to get the “worked on Halo” check in the box for their resumes.
While it’s important to note that anyone can sign up for Glassdoor and post reviews. The level of technical detail included with seemingly insider information leads me to believe that the reviews in question are most likey those of legitimate current or former employees.
Halo Infinite Development Concerns?
Is there enough here to cause concern? I think there really is. While certain comments may pertain to other projects at 343i and not necessarily reflect on Halo Infinite itself. There are enough details where we can point to Halo Infinite in many instances.
Hopefully with the time remaining before release, 343i can silence the critics and deliver the game, we the fans, deserve and have been waiting for.
