Some fans thought Halo 5 had too many medals, and now a developer working on Halo Infinite has responded.

Given that Microsoft has said almost nothing about what to expect from Halo Infinite, which is releasing later this year, fans are understandable hungry for any morsel of news about the game. Halo community manager John Junyszek has now shared a tease for Halo Infinite as it relates to its use of Medals.

Replying to a fan who remarked that Medals feel meaningless in Halo 5 because they are doled out so generously, Junyszek said, "We're definitely aware of this feedback," adding the smiley face and punch emojis to his message, whatever that means.

Reading between the lines here, it seems developer 343 Industries is planning some kind of change for how Medals work in Halo Infinite. Some people criticized Halo 5 for simply having too many medals. Other people, meanwhile, enjoyed the frequent feedback of in-game performance. It'll be interesting to see how Halo Infinite addresses the feedback.

Halo Infinite is primed for its proper unveiling at the Xbox 20/20 event in July. It is the third brand-new Halo game developed by Microsoft's 343 Industries after taking over control of the franchise from series creator Bungie. Halo 5 was criticized by some for its lackluster campaign, so fans may be happy to know that Halo Infinite puts a renewed focus on Master Chief and the art style is meant to hearken back to Halo's earlier days.

Halo Infinite is a launch title for the Xbox Series X; it's also coming to Xbox One and PC. Xbox Game Pass subscribers--on Xbox and PC--can get the new Halo game for no extra cost.

While you wait for Halo Infinite, you can check out Halo 2: Anniversary on PC starting May 12 and take part in an all-new MCC Pro Series tournament. Microsoft is also bringing Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST to the PC through The Master Chief Collection, and the first beta tests are due to begin soon.
