The next installment in the Halo franchise, Halo Infinite was revealed at Xbox’s E3 2018 Media Briefing today. It’s being developed by 343 industries and is running in a new engine called the “Slipspace engine”–according to the Halo Twitter account.
Xbox’s E3 2018 briefing gave viewers at home and in the audience the first glimpse of what Master Chief’s new journey will entail in a new cinematic trailer for Halo Infinite. You can watch the trailer by clicking here.
The trailer features many environments from forests, deserts, hilltops–you name it. It even features a few soldiers marching along the grassy terrain and engaging in battle. The biggest moment of the trailer where many Halo fans screamed in excitement was when the camera panned over to the main mascot of the series, Master Chief. He was shown carrying his helmet.
No information was given about the title and its story-line, but the Halo YouTube channel decided to leave a tiny bit of information in the trailer’s YouTube description box. Here’s what the trailer’s description box says,
“The Master Chief returns in Halo Infinite – the next chapter of the legendary franchise. Developed by 343 Industries and created with our new Slipspace Engine, Halo Infinite was revealed at the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing with a thrilling engine demo that provides a glimpse into the future of the Halo franchise, leading it into new and unexpected directions.”
Gamespot writer, Steve Watts, believes “what we saw was not the actual game” since the footage was described as “a thrilling engine demo that provides a glimpse into the future of the Halo franchise, leading it into new and unexpected directions.”
With that in mind, we now know what to expect from the next Halo game in the franchise and I can’t wait to sink my hands on those aliens when this game releases. The Halo YouTube channel confirms that this game is exclusive to Xbox One and Windows. We’ll keep you posted when new information on this title is shared with the world.
