The Halo Infinite announcement came from Microsoft in E3 2019. It was the next installment in the popular Xbox and PC franchise. Today, during Microsoft’s E3 2019 presser, Microsoft and 343 Industries returned with the Xbox One, Project Scarlett and PC game. Also this time, there was a lot more to show and say about it as well.
More Information About Halo Infinite Revealed At E3
At E3, it was revealed that the Halo Infinite was releasing on fall 2020 and that it was releasing on Xbox One, PC and Project Scarlett (the next Xbox). It also gave players a really good look at the game by showing off a new trailer, which you can check out above.
What Is Halo Infinite About?
The third chapter in the Reclaimer Saga, Halo Infinite follows up the events of Halo 5: Guardians. That said, while it’s a follow-up to Halo 5, as you can see, it doesn’t have the number six anywhere in its title. This was because 343 Industries considers it a “spiritual reboot.”
Bonnie Ross, the boss of 343 Industries said that:
“We’re kind of calling it a ‘spiritual reboot,’. That’s kind of how we talk about it. There has been a lot of introspective time to really reflect on what [we have] done as 343. Where have we made mistakes? Where have we hit it right? What does Halo mean to all of us?”
Halo Infinite Is The Next Generation Of Halo
343 Industries has also talked about the game as the “next generation” of Halo, and a game that will be equally friendly to die-hard fans and newcomers. To achieve this, 343 Industries has created a brand-new engine, the Slipspace engine, which is also partially why the game is taking longer than normal. Also reportedly Microsoft is dumping a ton of resources into the game, with one report claiming it’s currently the most expensive gaming project. Meanwhile, on Xbox insider has said that “careers will be made or broken” on how well the game does. So, it looks like 343 Industries is going all out on this one, and today at E3, it showed that.
Halo Infinite will be available on Xbox One, Project Scarlett, and PC when it releases.
