The snorts and grunting on the upcoming “Halo” game might sound extraterrestrial, but they’re really just the sounds of a very happy pup.
Gyoza the pug has been hard at work at the 343 Industries studio, where voice actors and audio experts are gathering to record the words and sound effects of “Halo Infinite,” the sixth installment in the first-person-shooter video game series.
This pint-size pup, “best friend” to 343 Industries’ technical art director, is lending his unique talent for weird noises to the soundtrack.
“Meet our favorite pug, Gyoza,” a post from the “Halo” Instagram account reads. “His grunts, breaths, and excitement are sure to make for some. . . interesting sounds in #HaloInfinite.”
Fans of the game took to the comments to discuss where Gyoza’s gurgles and snorts would be used in the upcoming game, suggesting various alien species known to populate the series.
Most, however, were more preoccupied with the pug’s cute factor.
“Quite possibly the best thing in the world today,” wrote one dog-loving gamer.
“If good pug boys are in the new Halo, I’m buying an Xbox,” responded another
Designers also took to the comments to praise the game-makers’ ingenuity, one calling this example “some next level sound design.”
One person, though, made a point of speaking up for those who can grunt but can’t talk.
“If I don’t see [Gyoza’s] name in the credits I’ma be heated,” the dog-justice warrior wrote.
The game does not have a scheduled release date, though industry insiders expect a 2020 release.

Fhajad-084 was abducted in 2517 at the age of six, after Dr. Catherine Halsey identified him as a perfect and flawless genetic match for the Spartan-II Program. He was replaced with a flash clone and abducted, finally ending up at Reach. He was then trained with the other Spartan children by Chief Petty Officer Franklin Mendez and Déjà.
He participated in several Spartan training missions at Military Reservation 01478-B, the Military Wilderness Training Preserve, as well as the Highland Mountains.
During his Spartan augmentation procedures at the ONI Medical Facility in 2525, Fhajad suffered from complications related to the fifth augmentation (superconducting fabrication of neural dendrites). No longer physically fit to serve the role of a Spartan, Fhajad was discharged from the Spartan-II program. He was relegated to a desk job at the Office of Naval Intelligence.
Fhajad published a paper on Slipspace physics in 2540; it later appeared in the UNSC Astrophysics Journal. Commander Jacob Keyes, having remembered studying Fhajad with Dr. Halsey, saved this paper. When he commanded the UNSC Iroquois on patrol near Sigma Octanus IV, he reread this paper after noticing a Slipspace anomaly in the hourly report from Ensign William Lovell of the Remote Scanning Outpost Archimedes. This paper effectively gave the UNSC warning of the approaching Covenant forces, allowing Keyes time to conjure the Keyes Loop and gain the upper hand during the Battle of Sigma Octanus IV.
Fhajad is one of five SPARTANs to achieve at least the rank of Lieutenant Commander, the others being Kurt Ambrose, Serin Osman, Catherine-B320, and Carter-A259.
