Halo: Infinite is an upcoming first-person shooter from 343 Industries. In its teaser trailer, the developer promised open environments and a renewed focus on the Master Chief. However, as the months go by, new details emerge. Lately, the studio has been discussing the world you'll get to explore in the game. During a recent live stream, the team stated it wanted to revive that sense of wonder that became a defining factor of Halo: Combat Evolved. The hosts went on to state that exploration played an important part in the game.
Frank O'Connor, Halo's franchise director, has offered further teasers on Twitter in exchange for virtual corn dogs it seems. When asked to provide some information about the upcoming title, he further expanded its promise for exploration, stating "natural landscapes will feature prominently." However, given the whimsical nature of the comments, we should probably focus on the information presented during the livestream.
The snow in our Xmas card of the e3 scene is temporary. The water will be varied. Natural landscapes will feature prominently. We know which Ring it is. Exploration will be rewarded. Corndogs plz. Mustard.— Frank O'Connor (@franklez) December 17, 2018
Current teasers suggest Halo Infinite will explore the Zeta Halo ring, from its mountainous regions to the ocean depths. It'll be interesting to see how this fits into the narrative, following the events of 2015's Halo 5: Guardians.
Now that the technology exists — especially with the Xbox One X — 343 Industries can make it happen. However, only time will tell if these ambitions are realized. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more about the game. Maybe E3 2019 will bring us a release date. Many expect this game to be a launch title for the next-generation Xbox console.
