In addition, Payne accompanied his farewell tweet with another with an image of the Master Chief in which he read “I’ll see you later this year, Boss”, referring to the launch of the game on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S this year. The post was later removed.
His departure is because his contract with 343 Industries was ending at the beginning of this year and has had to find work on other projects, as revealed by responding to Gamespot on Twitter.
Guys .. I was a contractor. My contract was ending so I found a new job. This isn’t news. Stop with your clickbait

Recall that Halo Infinite is scheduled to arrive in autumn 2021, after the initial plan to land along with the new Microsoft consoles. The truth is It is not the first time that the game suffers absences in its organization chart.
The director of the game resigned a few months ago, something that Phil Spencer decided not to give too much importance, assuring that “the rotation is something healthy”
