Halo fans have continued to show their devotion to the series through more than playing Halo Infinite; they’re creating fan-made content and products. While some have been in the works for a while, the hype around the game seems to be getting more attention, and traction, due to the upcoming release of the Halo television series on March 24.
The most recent fan-made product is a pair of custom training shoes with a Halo and Master Chief theme. The green and tan running shoes were posted to the Halo Infinite reddit page. The creator also posted where they made the design on the Nike website.
Another fan-made Halo product, Branching Sickness, also showed up on the Halo Infinite forums. The Halo fan game, announced in 2021 and to be released sometime in 2022, is a horror title about the Flood. The story follows one trapped Marine as he tries to survive while an onslaught of Flood attacks him.
The Halo spinoff was recently showcased on the Infinite forums and garnered much attention. The team working on the title has had a working trailer since July of 2021. The game, itself, looks decently polished for a fan-made game and the lead modeler released in-game screenshots, one of which is provided below, for the community to see.
