In a thread over on Reddit, 343 Community Director Brian Jarrard confirmed that the studio has no plans to show off Halo Infinite during The Game Awards. 

“Full disclosure we don’t have anything planned for the VGAs, but are hoping to offer at least a high level update within the next few weeks so we can kind of restart this journey together after the holidays,” Jarrard said in response to questions of Infinite appearing at the event. “Pulling together something like a demo or big beat for the VGAs is an enormous amount of work and would cause challenges with current milestones of the holidays. I know it’s hard to wait, but the team is going to make the most of this extra time and we want to make sure we can put our best foot forward and commit to greater transparency and dialog on the road ahead. We’ll get there and get the train going again.”

Halo Infinite has had a troublesome development history. The game was supposed to launch with the Xbox Series S/X but was delayed after the release of the gameplay debut trailer. Showing visuals that were not at par for a AAA release. In addition, the game has lost multiple directors and questionable marketing material released showing off expensive microtransactions. The games multiplayer has been confirmed to be free-to-play which raised a lot of alarms about the monetization system. Lastly, the game still has no official release date, just in 2021.

Perhaps Halo Infinite will launch to high acclaim but the development history showcases a terribly mismanaged project.
