Craig the Brute is the “official Xbox mascot,” says Phil Spencer


If something in any respect about Halo Infinite, you’ll in all probability know that each Halo fan on the planet loves Craig the Brute.

What’s that? You don’t know Craig? That’s okay, I’ve posted a photograph of him beneath. He’s the brand new official Xbox mascot.

Shortly after the web grew to become infatuated with Craig the Brute, a fan tweeted at Phil Spencer to ask for his tackle the scenario. “What’s your tackle Craig?” he requested. The web waited with bated breath for 3 lengthy and arduous minutes to see whether or not or not Spencer would do the suitable factor.

As you possibly can inform from the tweet beneath, thankfully, he did.

“Our new official Xbox mascot,” wrote Spencer. “Love the neighborhood and their capability to simply take one thing enjoyable and run with it.”

Craig the Brute heroically saved Halo Infinite after the Xbox first-party video games reveal from final month. Whereas followers had been comparatively unenthused by the gameplay’s visible constancy, Craig’s splendidly rendered face reinvigorated their wishes for a brand new Halo recreation. It was not concerning the grappling hook, or the open world, or the long-awaited return of Grasp Chief.

As a substitute, it was about Craig, a lovable brute who has since been promoted to “official Xbox mascot.” I’d say John Halo is totally fuming, carving 117 into each Pelican in sight whereas Craig simply listens to lo-fi Banished beats. Craig the Brute understands that making an excessive amount of of an effort is counter-intuitive. We solely obtained one take a look at him earlier than he retreated from his newfound fame and glory, and but that one picture is completely etched into our brains. Possibly someday he’ll grace us along with his fantastic visage as soon as extra.

343 Industries just lately admitted that it had “work to do” on Halo Infinite’s graphics, however I don’t know. I feel the one work that wants doing is ensuring Craig the Brute is a) the brand new protagonist, and b) the star of 10 future Halo sequels.

In associated information, Halo Infinite multiplayer might be free to play. Apparently it would function a battle royale mode.
