343 Industries’ Halo Infinite has been abuzz with details regarding its development team and various departures. However, we’ve set to see any real gameplay of the upcoming first person shooter. A recruitment video recently made the rounds that seemed to contain off-screen footage for the game.

While it didn’t seem all that significant, it apparently matched a supposed leaked screenshot from one month prior. A certain icon seemed to indicate that Master Chief would have a grappling hook this time around. Unfortunately, it seems that fans might have been off base.

Franchise development director Frank O’Connor responded to a tweet matching the recent video to a leak from December and said, “You know we scrub these for accidental leaks right? (Thanks for nothing 4k!) gray box/forge thing you’re looking at doesn’t show anything meaningful and isn’t even necessarily content from Infinite. Sometimes they’re just test environments or cut outs of H5 prototyping work…and sometimes just stuff from dev that we decided doesn’t constitute anything meaningful or meaningful intended to ship.”

Long story short, don’t believe everything you see and don’t expect Master Chief to have a grappling hook in the sequel. We do know that Halo Infinite will offer player customization akin to Halo: Reach but we’re still holding out for gameplay. Stay tuned for more details, most likely at E3 2020.

Halo Infinite releases this holiday season for Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC.
