Today Xbox is hosting its E3 2018 press briefing from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and we finally saw the reveal of the new chapter of the Halo franchise.
The game is titled Halo Infinite and the announcement trailer was brief but sweet, showing that the game is being developed by 343 Industries with the “Slipspace Engine.”
“The Master Chief returns in Halo Infinite – the next chapter of the legendary franchise. Developed by 343 Industries and created with our new Slipspace Engine, Halo Infinite was revealed at the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing with a thrilling engine demo that provides a glimpse into the future of the Halo franchise, leading it into new and unexpected directions.”
Of course, the game is likely to be coming for Xbox One and Windows 10, even if the announcement trailer did not explicitly mention that.
One thing is for sure, this was a hell of a way to kick off the press conference, which appears to be very much about Microsoft’s first-party effort.
You can check out the trailer below, and see if it entices you. Personally, I’m pretty stoked, even if I want to see more before passing judgement.
This is just one of the many reveals from today’s Xbox press briefing. You can check out everything else in the livestream directly from Microsoft.
