Microsoft’s E3 2018 presentation was far from lacklustre. If you didn’t watch it, then I’d highly recommend watching the stream again as there were rather some huge announcements. In this post, I’m going to discuss the biggest one, which is the announcement of Halo Infinite. Halo Infinite is the next installment in the Halo saga. The game is titled, “Halo Infinite”. The game is built on the Slipstream engine.
Phil Spencer claimed that it would be Master Chief’s “greatest adventure.” If you haven’t watched the trailer, I’m going to drop a link below so that you can watch it — https://youtu.be/Fmdb-KmlzD8
In the trailer, we saw a lot of different environments. Towards the end of the trailer, we can see soldiers throwing a flare, and we also see Master Chief’s helmet in the corner of the screen, which confirms his return. Unlike the previous Halo games, this game doesn’t have any number in the title.
It should be noted that it may be possible that Halo Infinite might not be the finished product. In fact, in a press release after the E3, Microsoft described the trailer as an “engine demo”. The trailer is a presentation of what the game would look like. It was described as a “thrilling engine demo that provides a glimpse into the future of Halo, leading the franchise into new and unexpected directions.”
It has been three years since Halo 5: Guardians was released. There was no significant news from the franchise. If it is really a demo, then the release of Halo Infinite is still far away. Halo Infinite was much required for Xbox One. Sony has toppled Xbox’s competition with exclusives such as Yakuza 0, God of War, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Bloodborne, Until Dawn and Uncharted 4. The Xbox One has struggled a lot to keep up. The only consistent seller for Xbox One has been Forza.
