To kick off their E3 2018 press conference, Microsoft teased the gaming community with a glimpse of the next game in the Halo franchise, Halo Infinite.
Developed by 343 Industries, this new title appears to be a follow-up to Halo 5: Guardians. During the two-minute announce trailer we’re taken through an ecosystem of animals and fauna on an unnamed planet, eventually getting a glimpse of a helmet bearing Master Chief.
You can check out the trailer after the break.
In response to the trailer, studio head Chris Lee posted this on the Halo Waypoint website:
“The Slipspace Engine demo shown at the E3 2018 briefing is the culmination of years of work and is infused with the passion of hundreds of people here at 343 Industries. When we started this project, the teamâ€™s vision for the game was ambitious â€“ so much so that we knew we had to build new tech to fully realize our goals for Halo Infinite. The E3 demo showcases some of the exciting potential of this technology â€“ everything you see is running in-engine. We still have a long way to go until we ship the game, so things will certainly evolve between now and the release of Halo Infinite, though the engine demo is a clear indication of the direction we are heading with our next game and a great snapshot of where our tech is right now.”
With no release date provided at the moment, we’ll just have to wait and see what’s next in store for Master Chief.
