With the release of Halo Infinite only a few months away, many in the gaming community are looking forward to experiencing the game in its full state. Many players have already tried the Halo Infinite multiplayer beta and many like what they see. However, some users have raised concerns regarding the use of motion blur within Halo Infinite.
Motion blur has been a constant cosmetic feature present in various games. For some players, its presence is inconsequential, but for others, using motion blur can be very detrimental to the overall experience. To the point where in early 2021 Square Enix had to add a motion blur toggle to the Outriders demo due to demand. Now, a number of players are wary of including motion blur in Halo Infinite. A Reddit user named NesquikBF4 posted in response to another post by a 343 Industries employee saying that there were no current plans to remove motion blur from Halo 3 in the Master Chief Collection.
The user specifically stated that he had difficulty playing games with motion blur due to nausea. Many other users expressed concern that these types of changes will not apply to Halo Infinite. Especially in recent years, accessibility features have become a mainstay of video game development. Allowing gamers of all types to experience the game as effectively as everyone else is important, and thankfully much more attention has gone into ensuring that AAA games are accessible to everyone who wants to play them.
That said, game development is not an easy process. If the lack of a motion blur switch on the Master Chief Collection is any indicator, then a solution like that is likely to be very difficult to come up with. Although, many other games, such as Uncharted 4, added the ability to toggle motion blur after the initial release, so it's possible that a feature like that will be included later. Ultimately, Halo Infinite has yet to be officially released, and without having the finished product commercially available, there is no way to know for sure if a toggle ability for motion blur will be included in the final version of the game. However, it is worth mentioning that much like the response of 343 employees to the use of motion blur in the Master Chief Collection, if there is enough demand, a patch will likely be released later, in case it is a default option. . .
