That cancelled Halo Starfighter game

For those who don’t know, during the development of Halo Infinite, a small group within 343 pitched the idea of a Halo Starfighter game wherein we would be able to play as a pilot and control various aircraft of the Halo franchise. Think of an extended version of the piloting controls we had in Halo Reach’s ‘Long Night of Solace’ mission.

They supposedly had an early build and plenty of concept materials. But unfortunately the executives binned the idea and had the pocket team re-focus their efforts on the development of Infinite.

I wonder if it would’ve been a good idea to have this small starfighter game be a fully released spin-off instead of another cancelled title?
