Microsofts E3 is now over and we found out a bit more about Halo Infinite but maybe not as much as we expected. A report before the event by Thurrott confirmed the games presence and suggested we would see the game in action.

Unfortunately, there was no gameplay, so how Halo Infinite will differ from the rest of the series is still up in the air. What we did get was a new trailer running on Xbox 2 hardware

The new trailer revealed some details about how the next instalment of Halo will coincide with the newly revealed Project Scarlett consoleas well as some interesting tidbits about what platforms itll be available on.

What is Halo Infiniteis it actually Halo 6?

With Halo Infinite, 343 Industries has upended traditional naming conventions for the main series of Halopotentially marking a new beginning for the series. Halo Infinite will be the first main series Halo game without a number in the title since the first entryHalo: Combat Evolved and Reach, which was technically a prequel

343 Industries has put out some mixed signals about whether this means the game is just actually Halo 6 or if it is a bigger shift for the series. 343s Jeff Easterling previously confirmed to Gamespot, “you should just consider it Halo 6. Dont think of it as a weird prequel kind of thing. Its the next story. Its the next chapter in what is going on.”

However, a 343 Industries blog post released to coincide with E3 2019 would suggest Halo Infinite is a new start. Halo Infinite is referred to as aspiritual rebootanda perfect starting point for new players”. The studio does still insistthe universe will continue the continuity of Halo 5”.

Halo Infinite release datewhen is it coming out?

During the Microsoft E3 2019 press conference, we did get a more solid idea of when we will be able to play Halo Infinite. The game will release as a launch title for Project Scarlett duringHoliday 2020”.

Holiday 2020 is maybe not the definitive answer we would have likedfor Halo Infinite or Xboxs next-gen console. However, there was some speculation the game may sneak out this yearthat rumour has now been dispelled.

The Halo Infinite presentation also confirmed what we already knew. This will be the first instalment of Halo to launch on the PC alongside Microsofts console offeringitll be available on Project Scarlett and the Xbox One.

As well as being available to purchase via traditional methods, it is expected Halo Infinite will be a featured game on Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Play Anywhere. Microsoft also announced Xbox Game Pass for PC at the eventanother platform we can expect to see Halo Infinite on.

Halo Infinite gameplayhow does it play?

We thought we may have more answers to this following E3 2019 but Microsofts conference came and went without a hint of Halo Infinite gameplay. The previous trailer showed off sprawling landscapespotentially hinting towards a more open-world style of gameplay for Halo Infinite. We do know Halo Infinite will be running on 343 Industriesnew Slipstream engine and the stunning shots are likely there to show off the new engines next-gen chops.

The E3 statement from 343 Industries features a lot of mentions of story, however. Story and open-world gameplay arent mutually exclusiveof coursebut narrative-focused games are more traditionally known to be a tailored experience.
