Halo Infinite is going to be a pretty big deal. Few video game franchises form as big a part of Xbox’s identity as Halo, and Microsoft knows it. When you think of Xbox, it’s very hard not to imagine the algae-green super soldier that is Master Chief and hours spent fending off the Flood. A Halo Infinite reveal is coming in July 2020, as part of Microsoft’s series of Inside, Xbox reveals for the Xbox Series X console.
HALO 6 INFINITE RELEASE DATE
We now know that Halo Infinite is coming at the end of 2020, to coincide with the launch of the Xbox Series X (though it will be a cross-generation title). Microsoft has given a release window of ”Holiday 2020”, so we’re expecting the game to release, alongside Series X, sometime between October and December 2020.
THERE WAS NO HALO INFINITE GAMEPLAY AT E3 2019 OR GAMESCOM 2019 OR X019
This is probably the only disappointment after the new trailer, platform confirmation, and release date: despite strong rumors, there would be Halo Infinite gameplay at E3 2019, there was not a thing. Just the trailer. There was no Halo Infinite news at this year’s Gamescom. And most surprisingly, at Microsoft’s big year-end celebration, X019, Halo Infinite news was nonexistent. They’re really keeping us in the dark about this.
Xbox Series X’s SSD will make a “huge difference” for devs, says Halo co-creator
Speaking to VGC, former Bungie art director, Marcus Lehto, explained that the Xbox Series X’s custom SSD will give developers much more freedom.
“It will make a huge difference,” Lehto told VGC. “It will open up the door for more expansive content that can stream a lot faster. Players won’t be waiting on load screens and we won’t have to hide loading behind cinematics and that kind of thing.
“It will just help make things a lot more seamless and fluid for the player when it comes to their experience on those consoles.
“I am really excited about that because that’s one of the things that’s really hard for us in particular right now: dealing with those old platforms.”
We can’t wait to see how Halo Infinite developer, 343 Industries, will harness the power of this SSD – even if its not packing as much power as the PS5’s super-fast SSD.
