Default Halo: Infinite


"HALO INFINITE" (PROJECT SCARLETT, XBOX ONE AND WINDOWS 10 PC). The Master Chief returns in 2020 when "Halo Infinite" releases globally with Project Scarlett. This next chapter in 343 Industries' legendary Halo franchise invites players to join the venerable Master Chief on an all-new adventure as he uncovers the mysteries surrounding the appearance of "The Pilot" and the desolate remains of a Halo ring. "Halo Infinite" is powered by the studio's next-generation Slipspace Engine.

No date, nothing revealed at all... at earliest, fall 2019. Maybe early 2020. On one hand I'm disappointed, on the other 343 really needs to up their game, and I hope the time they have to work on Infinite does the trick.

If this is going to be open world Halo as it was originally planned to be then it would be huge. The original Halo was supposed to more like Destiny an open world exploration game, but was too ambitious at the time, now would be perfect.

Here’s some more updates. The art style looked more like Bungie and less like 343 to me.

https://www.polygon.com/e3/2018/6/10...er-xbox-one-pc

Quote:
Update: YouTube Live’s interview with with Aaron Greenberg, games marketing GM for Xbox, added a bit more context to what Halo Infinite will actually be — or rather, what it won’t be:

This is an entirely new chapter in the Halo saga. What we did was an in-engine demonstration. The Slipspace engine is new. 343 has built this purposefully to take Halo in a whole new direction. It’s a story that centers on Master Chief. I think you saw visually some of the capabilities of the engine. We’re excited to share more, but for now: There’s a new Halo coming, it’s Halo Infinite and it features really a focus on Master Chief, which I think will be really received well by the fans.
When Geoff Keighley pushed Greenberg further with a question about the inevitability of Halo 6, Greenberg responded with this: “This is the next Halo game. Think of this as moving from the numbering to let’s do something completely different.”

It sounds like it could be a while before we see the resolution of Halo 5: Guardians’ story from 2015.

Update 2: In a article posted on Halo Waypoint, 343 Industries studio head Chris Lee confirmed that players will be spending much more time with their favorite green Spartan time time around.

“The team also heard feedback loud and clear on the amount of time spent playing as the Master Chief in Halo 5,” he said. “In Halo Infinite, the game will focus on the Master Chief and continue his saga after the events of Halo 5.”

Players can expect to spend more time in Master Chief’s big, metal boots. This is good news for players who miss the original Halo trilogy, but less good news for those that enjoyed the adventures of Locke and company from Halo 5.
Also remember this was more a trailer for what the new engine is capable of and less what the new game will be.

So this is definitely Halo 6, just dropping the number and adding a subtitle. Can't wait for this whenever it is it comes out.

Also with the throwback in the art department I’m hoping they get Marty to do the music.

They need to do something. But, that trailer was pretty generic.

Keep in mind that was simply a new game engine trailer used to do nothing more than confirm they are working on the next Halo game and that it will be a more open environment type game. I highly suspect absolutely nothing from that trailer will be in the game and the engine is probably still in it's alpha or pre-alpha stages.

The new engine has definitely changed the look of Halo to a more clean, stylized aesthetic. Not saying it's good or bad. But it does appear be a bit less "gritty" in this new engine.

Definitely a new look for sure. One thing I've always knocked Bungie and 343 for over the years when compared to other top tier FPS games is how relatively cartoonish looking some of the graphics could be by times, not that they were bad but when thinking in terms of realism or, pixel detail etc. Halo always fell short vs say COD, Doom, etc.. Granted that was done on purpose but it would be great to get a Halo game that pushed the same graphical boundaries that games like Doom, COD, Battlefield, etc. have done over the years.

No Battle Royale mode for the next Halo game.

Quote:
It seems the Halo series will not be following the trend, though. In a Halo 5-focused "social stream" hosted on Microsoft's Mixer platform last night, 343 Industries writer Jeff Easterling said the studio is not working on a battle royale mode for the upcoming Halo Infinite .

A viewer plainly asked, "Will there be battle royale in Halo Infinite?" Easterling responded definitively, "Ill tell you right now, the only BR were interested in is Battle Rifle, the original BR. So calm yourself."
Good.

Good. Battle royale was cool for a little while, but now it's way oversaturated. Just another fad. It doesn't belong in Halo.

They make too many Halo games. The original Halo is one of the best video games. But it's been downhill since. No Halo game has captured the greatness and awe of the original.

Lol, no. They're not making enough Halo games.

Halo 2, 3 and Reach all captured the greatness and awe of the original too.

Yeah 5 mainline games and 2 spinoffs in 17 years isn't "too many" in my eyes.
