343 Industries acknowledges that conditioning the playable part seen in the first Halo Infinite demo was “a Herculean effort.” This was stated by the company during an interview with Ani Shastry, Development Manager of the graphic team; there is a lot of work behind the footage of about nine minutes.
While this is only one section of the final game, it took a Herculean effort to make sure this little corner of the Ring was polished and pretty enough to debut.
