Halo is back Baby! Microsoft just announced at its E3 press conference a new installment of the franchise that will be titled Halo Infinite.
I'm not a huge Halo fan, but that was a great trailer to open with and the game looks pretty sweet.
How can you tell from that trailer?!
Halo hasn’t mattered since halo 2.
The new engine looks insane! Visuals are on another level!
Not sure what this is, Halo 6? Possibly just changing the expected title to indicate they’ll be wrapping up the Master Chief storyline or something. Graphics are what I’ve been hoping for, a new standard, couldn’t be happier though I wish we knew more.
Septic Am i missing something? How on earth do the visuals look insane? They didn't really show gameplay, it was essentially a cinematic teaser. The w
I'm a little stumped. I felt for sure it would be launching this year. If not this year I expected to see a beta before Christmas with an announcement of Early or Mid or just plain 2019 on screen. Maybe later in the conference they'll return to the game and we'll see a date.
I would agree but Crackdown 3 is coming to Gamepass on launch day so it means Beta with Gamepass. That should just be a separate promotion - buy Gamepass get into the HALO Infinite beta.
I thought Gears 5 would be shown but I didn't know about Gears Pop. The strategy game seems quite cool though I am afraid that adapting it for console will kill the PC version. As for Gears 5, don't really want the emo version. Why couldn't they have just started with young Marcus and gone through Emergence Day. The characters shown seem to influenced by Final Fantasy. Also the fact that Crackdown only got a trailer and is day one on Gamepass should tell you what happened to the destruction tech...
They said its a long way off..
"They said its a long way off.." I have the feeling now that it will be a next gen game.
Lol. Game looks sweet. How do you know?
it's the chip at the end... cortana will return to make this game great! (lol) They do make nice trailers though
They return to the old artstyle plus cortana gg ez
Awesome!! Finally a new engine and classic halo look!! What a way to open up
Super excited to have Chief front and center again. I cant wait to see more.
Yeah, I’m excited. New engine looks phenomenal 👌🏼
I hope it's not open world.
Halos are rings... so it would be "open-ring" not open world. So you basically don't need to worry at all. (;
I was hoping to see some gameplay, hopefully they show some later in the conference.
This Halo is a looooooong way out, per a blog post on Waypoint. I would expect gameplay till *maybe* next E3
Looks pretty. I’m picking up some open world vibes.
Wtf is it???
Where do you go after Infinity naming scheme wise? Will the Halo after this be called Infinity +1?
Infinity and beyond
You've always had a thing for naming conventions. Well, they are obviously dropping the numbers. it will be subtitles only from here on out.
might have something to do with Halo 5 being criticised quite heavily... easier to forget about it ditching the numbers
@getback They announced with 5’s announcement that they would be moving away from numbers, which is why it was 5: Guardians. But the art style is definitely moving away from 5 on purpose, and for the better
Remember when Activision wanted COD to be never ending, so they came up with COD Infinite warfare? Well....$10 says that this game is like that, with a long term plan to make it into a GaaS type game. They said you can play along with Master chief, not that you'd be playing as Master Chief. I expect this to be MP only, maybe with some basic SP campaign thing ala BFV.
Well for starters it's not called infinity soooo.....ya
It's "Infinite", not Infinity.
So this is an announcement for a game engine and halo infinite will be the next Halo. If that the case from what I can see it's made to be an open world game. That is not really what I expected but to be completely honest I'm very impressed. The halo engine to this day is still from the same one bungie made when halo began and to change that is a huge step for the series direction. I can see what they are trying to achieve with the next Halo game. I may feature a vast open world gameplay where you can fly around. Or maybe this is for battle royale mutiplayer. For whichever it is I'm pumped to see what they have to show us.
So no date then? Jesus Christ... what other exclusives does Microsoft have for the rest of 2018? Is Forza Horizon 4 literally all they have?
"Jesus Christ" Relax, it's not that serious. Besides, why the concern? You're on PlayStation right? I'm not even a racer fan but that Horizon 4 looks like its in a league of its own. they have that genre on lock.
Literally nobody expected halo to release 2018, why is this an issue all of a sudden?
Because the lists dude
Because fake concern thats why
It's pretty bad that Xbox doesn't have much else other than Forza lined up for the year when they were supposed to have much more, and I'm pretty sure I'm free to express how bad that is. Horizon 4 does look good, and it's clearly one of Xbox's best games and series. My comment was not even made under any expectation of the new Halo releasing in 2018 - but it didn't even get a 2019 release date, and that's bad when it's Microsoft's top franchise and there hasn't been a new one since 2015. I find it funny how the ones going after my comment and others like it call it "fake concern", when there's no concern in my tone - it's more of a statement of sheer disbelief that Xbox can be this bad after 15 years in the industry, and 5 years into this generation.
Halo 4 and 5 was dog shit if they can make it as great as halo 2 was back in the day then I’m all in
I was surprised it was Halo. Though I'm not surprised it's not called Halo 6.
It's not a Halo 5 sequel
Game engine demonstration means what actually? Just wondering if trailer is more like a concept for the game or tech trailer. Just the term threw me back.
That was a pretty unspectacular reveal. I was fully expecting more from the trailer/update for the next Halo. 2020 earliest if that is all we got.
I see snow and become intrigued. Snow automatically gets me interested in games as it's my favourite weather type for games. I hate Halo, but I'll atleast see how this game ends up before hating on it like I have every halo after 2
This trailer (engine showcase) was junk... I'm afraid this game is a good 3 years away. Not sure why some are saying it looks amazing... I thought the animation from the animals looked off, the warthog looked like it wasn't even touching the ground... I thought in general they had a great showing, but they basically had a 3rd party conference sprinkled with little 1st party. I'm sure it fooled the enthusiast, but when the dust settles in a few weeks, people are going to come away scratching their heads "that was basically smoke & mirrors... You played me again Microsoft"
Guess they wont have that Problem next time with 5 new studios and more to come
No love from this particular trailer, but note at the conference, as the trailer was ending they flashed the Windows 10 name alongside the game. Finally getting one for pc again.
It seemed like a scripted promise. I wont fall for it until i see gameplay. Could end up for the next box for all anyone knows. I hope its a great game but i dont trust them
Is this a Battle Royale game? Or a direct sequel to Halo 5 either way looks like it’ll drop the team based thing and focus on a solo Master Chief game (a big plus for me).
Just Engine Demonstration...
Halo going open world?!?! Omg this is so huge i can’t wait to see more
So this isn’t halo 6 correct?
The textures in Halo 6 has greatly improved. Hopefully, the final product looks that way.
The most intriguing part of this trailer is the speed of the Warthog and how it absorbs the terrain, it reminds me of the first trailer back when Halo was announced for Mac
