At E3 2018, Microsoft stunned gamers by announcing Halo Infinite, the next major game in the legendary Halo franchise. The trailer teased an open-world environment filled with exotic wildlife and breathtaking alien structures. The project seems quite large in terms of scope, and it looks like 343 Industries is enlisting some help. According to a report by WCCFtech, the studio has teamed up with developer SkyBox Labs. Skybox has previously contributed to titles like Age of Empires II HD, Halo 5, and UFC.
The report states that SkyBox will be contributing to Halo Infinite's gameplay, visuals, networking, and much more. When asked about the collaboration with the developer, Halo head Chris Lee said, "343 Industries is excited to continue our partnership with SkyBox Labs on Halo Infinite, with their team doing great work across many areas of our project."
SkyBox founder Shyang Kong also expressed excitement over the team-up by stating, "We have been working closely with 343 Industries on Halo projects for a number of years, and we're thrilled to be part of this exciting time in Halo's history."
Halo Infinite will be centered around the Master Chief and continues the current storyline. Cortana is still the villain and Master Chief has to save humanity from her convoluted schemes. This time around 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. 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.
