Microsoft has revealed the next chapter of the legendary Halo game franchise and it appears that the franchise is not dead yet. The new title is called Halo Infinite and they’ve released the first trailer during the Xbox E3 2018 press conference. It offers an impressive first look at what we can expect from the game and Master Chief will return! The game will continue his mission after the happenings of Halo 5.
When talking about the game and the team’s vision for it, 343 Industries Studio Head Chris Lee said:
“When we started this project, the team’s vision for the game was ambitious. So much so that we knew we had to build new tech to fully realize our goals for Halo Infinite. The E3 demo showcases some of the exciting potential of this technology – everything you see is running in-engine. We still have a long way to go until we ship the game, so things will certainly evolve between now and the release of Halo Infinite, though the engine demo is a clear indication of the direction we are heading with our next game and a great snapshot of where our tech is right now.
“I know waiting can be hard for folks who are excited for more info about the game. We are taking the time we need to make the right game and are making changes to how we approach things this time around. The goal of the entire 343 Industries team is to make a great Halo game for our fans that also invites new players into our franchise. We will have some new and unexpected directions to take folks in and I believe the way we achieve that is to build alongside our community, iterating and improving as we go.”
The game was produced with 343 Industries’ new Slipspace Engine, and it provides “a glimpse into the future of the Halo franchise, leading it into new and unexpected directions.” Watch the trailer and tell me are you still excited for the Halo franchise?
