- In an interview, 343 Industries Studio Head Chris Lee revealed that the developers want Halo Infinite to act as a "platform for the future."
- Essentially, this means that new Halo content will come out as additions to Halo Infinite rather than as new games.
- This information was preceded by the first official reveal of Halo Infinite's gameplay.
Following the official gameplay reveal for Halo Infinite, new information about the game's structure came to light through an interview by IGN with 343 Industries' Studio Head Chris Lee. Specifically, Lee revealed that 343 is planning on treating Halo Infinite as a foundation for further Halo content to be added onto later.
"Halo Infinite is the start of our platform for the future," Lee said. "We want Infinite to grow over time, versus going to those numbered titles and having all that segmentation that we had before. It's really about creating Halo Infinite as the start of the next ten years for Halo and then building that as we go with our fans and community."
Ultimately, it sounds like Halo Infinite will be acting as a platform for things like campaign expansions and other types of DLC. Hopefully we'll know more about 343's plans to build the future of Halo off of Halo Infinite soon. Are you excited by this direction? Let us know in the comments.
Halo Infinite is expected to launch during Holiday 2020 on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Windows 10 PCs.
