343i reveals the reason they almost delayed the Halo Infinite Tech Test was due to accidental files being in the build again

During yesterday’s Halo Infinite tech test live stream 343i talked about how a late issue might delay the roll out of the flighting. Today they revealed just what that was. They accidentally left sixty-even concept art files in the game. Instead of delaying the flight and removing these they have chosen to simply release all the concept art directly instead! Enjoy the blog post and beautiful art which you can find here The Art of Halo Infinite | Halo Infinite | Halo – Official Site (halowaypoint.com) below, including a full download of all 67 images.


In yesterday’s live stream we mentioned that there was an issue that might delay our Multiplayer Tech Preview. Well, the issue was this: we unintentionally included a group of concept art files in the Tech Preview build.

To be clear: none of these images spoil the Halo Infinite Campaign that you’ll get to play on December 8th. Indeed, we’ve already shown some of these images in previous blog posts.

This art represents a wide range of ideas that we explored early in pre-production and that we planned to share at a later date, as part of Infinite’s pre-launch promotion and other initiatives such as the upcoming “The Art of Halo Infinite” from our partners at Dark Horse (check out some sample excerpts below). For a time, we used these images as loading screens for internal studio builds—and that’s how they accidentally ended up in the Tech Preview build.

Rather than delay the flight, we’ve decided to share all the files with you now. Call it an unplanned “Happy Tech Preview Day!” gift. So, please enjoy this collection of beautiful art from 343 Industries’ incredibly talented concept art team. Download the collection here: 4K Zip File | HD Zip File

These images have inspired us—filled our minds with wonder and possibilities—and we hope they do the same for you.
