343 Industries believes the video game could also attract viewers interested in the Halo series.
The adventures of Master Chief have transcended the boundaries of video games, with the premiere of the Halo TV series attracting a massive number of viewers. The small-screen adaptation of Halo has broken records on Paramount+, so it’s no surprise that a second season has already been greenlit.
Still, many Halo Infinite players miss the element of the game that promotes the new Master Chief series. That’s why The Washington Post spoke with Brian Jarrard, 343 Industries’ director of communications, to address the issue. And apparently, there are already plans to include elements of the series in the game.

“We will have some content that is inspired by the show that will be coming out in the game a little bit further down the road,” explained Jarrard. “The hope is that we see a lot more cross-pollination. ‘You like the show? Check out the game, by the way it’s free to play.'”
“We are looking at threads and nods we can bring into ‘Infinite’ because it is a service, and we’ll have the ability to shape and influence experiences and content over time, even though they are technically different universes and timelines,” continues the communications director. “I do think that you’ll see some eventual nods back and forth between the two … to look at ways to pull the show in fun ways.”
Although the series proved successful in the United States, some actors have been highly critical of the Paramount+ production. Master Chief actor Pablo Schreiber, who stars in the series, has vowed to work hard to dispel these complaints, although there are also concerns about 343 Industries’ development of Halo Infinite. After all, there is still much meaningful content missing for the community, but the studio has asked users to be a little more patient.
