Now Playing: Yes, Halo Infinite Is Coming To Xbox One And PC - GS News Update

Halo Infinite, the long-awaited follow-up to 2015's Halo 5: Guardians, will be at E3 2019. 343 Industries boss Bonnie Ross told IGN that the game director Chris Lee will discuss more details on the game at the big-time June show that is now just 100 days away. Little is known about what Lee will speak about, but Ross did confirm to IGN that one of the things he'll talk about is what the franchise's new SlipSpace engine is capable of from a technical standpoint.

Halo Infinite was announced at E3 2018 by way of a trailer not for the game, but for the new engine (watch it again in the video embed above). The trailer was grand, showcasing massive landscapes and gorgeous vistas. It was only a technical demonstration of what the game could be, and not necessarily what it will be.

It's no surprise that the game will be at E3, and we're excited to finally learn more about what kind of game Halo Infinite actually is. Given the game has "Infinite" in the title, Microsoft seems to be going big. Ross also recently discussed how Halo 4's multiplayer struggled and Halo 5's story didn't resonate with everyone, so she's hoping that Halo Infinite can be the best of both worlds. Time will tell.

In February, noted Microsoft insider Brad Sams reported that Microsoft will announce two new Xbox consoles at E3 2019. The report also claims that Halo Infinite will be a launch title for the next wave of Xbox hardware; this is notable because it would be the first time since 2001's Halo: Combat Evolved that a Halo game would be a launch title for new Xbox hardware.

The report also claims Halo Infinite will have RPG mechanics of some kind. For its part, Microsoft is referring to Halo Infinite as a "spiritual reboot" of the series. There is also a report that claims Microsoft will release Halo Infinite's multiplayer and single-player separately.

Halo Infinite is in development for Xbox One and PC, and that's notable because fans have been calling for more Halo on PC for a very long time now.

E3 2019 takes place June 11-13, and as mentioned, it's now only 100 days away. What are you hoping to see from Halo Infinite at E3 this year? Let us know in the comments below!

They need to kill off spartan Luke Cage...I mean Locke and his fire-team Osiris. While their at it they need to do the same to Blue team. The chief at his best and at his roots when he is working alone. The games are best when it's just him against all odds. None of this team based trash, it simply isn't what made Halo great. If you want a co-op campaign that is realistic (nobody used to care about 2 Chiefs running around...) make a separate campaign for it. The Master Chief in the single player campaign (that everyone wants) and the ungodly Team Assirus in the other (that absolutely nobody wants).

@fud_sang: Canon Co-Op/Co-Op with different characters can work. Just look at Halo 3 as a prime example of this. While I don’t mind playing as clones of the main character, it can be but if an annoyance of who’s who unless you look directly at them. Hopefully the SP will be lengthy and fun.

I’m hoping they debunk all rumors saying that it is a live service based Destiny clone and that it will focus primarily on the single player in an attempt to bring the series back to it’s roots.

I’m really expecting this to be similar to destiny.

Admittedly I'm not the biggest Halo fan, but i cant wait to see this, especially on their shiny new Engine.

I love E3, always have and cant wait to see whats cooking, just hope they give us a glimpse of what the other teams are working on, specifically 'Playground Games' as i believe they are working on an open world RPG type thingie.

Cant Wait! : )

We all know we getting microtransaction but the real question if the game is being made from the start as a "game as a service" model that EA and Ubisoft are pivoting to.

Nice. I’m really looking forward to seeing it. I can’t believe that E3 is getting to be that close again.

An actual in-game trailer or 30 seconds of gameplay. That's all I ask for.

Halo Infinite will be a battle royale MOBA with DLC, microtransactions, loot boxes, and esports potential.

@attirex: Why even bother commenting that? It's just a waste of your time.
