A week ago, Microsoft opened its E3 2018 briefing with a teaser for Halo Infinite which is powered by the new Slipspace Engine. According to Xbox's Phil Spencer, the game is Master Chief's greatest story yet. 343 Industries added that the engine allows opportunities for emergent experiences for gamers of today and tomorrow. The official website states that Halo Infinite is targeting Xbox One and PC, and should run at "4K Ultra HD" and "HDR" on Xbox One X.
There was a lot of speculation whether Halo Infinite would be a current-generation experience and that definitely seems to be the case. It's always good to address unfounded rumors head-on rather than allowing them to fester. The same goes for Cyberpunk 2077. Numerous outlets said that it would be a next-generation game but CD Projekt RED confirmed that it was targeting Xbox One.
For those unfamiliar with the reveal, Halo Infinite will be a new Halo game centered on the Master Chief that continues the current storyline. Cortana is still the villain and Master Chief has to save humanity from her convoluted schemes. It seems like this time they involve a Halo ring.
The project seems to be going in a radically new direction so it'll take time to craft this experience. Hopefully 343 Industries will take cues from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild when it comes to environmental interactivity because the setting seems to be the star of the show in the trailer. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. Until then, be sure to gawk at the gorgeous visuals and Master Chief's classic armor.
