Halo Infinite Will Be Shown Off During July's Xbox Series X First Party Reveal Stream

We've been assuming that Halo Infinite would be part of Microsoft's first-party Xbox Series X showcase in July--but now we know it for sure.

50 Comments

Halo Infinite will be an Xbox Series X launch game, but we haven't seen any gameplay footage from it yet. When we learned that Xbox would showcase first-party titles for the system in an upcoming Xbox 20/20 presentation in July, we assumed that Halo Infinite would be one of them--and now we have official confirmation from 343 Industries itself.

In the latest post on Halo Waypoint, developer 343 Industries states that we'll see more of the game during the upcoming stream. "You may have seen people talking about this lightly before, but we're extremely excited to confirm that Halo Infinite will be one of many first-party titles included in the Xbox 20/20 event in July," the post reads.

There's no actual confirmation in thesse words that we'll definitely see gameplay footage here, of course, but it seems inevitable, even if the first Xbox 20/20 showcase did not deliver as promised on that front.

There's no specific date for this July presentation, but the first one took place on May 7, and included a mix of new game reveals and port announcements.

Halo Infinite will also come to Xbox One and PC before the end of 2020. Hopefully Aaron Greenberg's recent claim that 343 Industries is "cooking up some fire" proves accurate.

XBOX ONE has more of variety of video games than PlayStation 4 so I don’t know what people are complaining about.

Don’t buy an XBOX if you don’t like the games it has to offer and any features PlayStation is missing is Sony’s fault.

While ps 4 has ghost of tsushima and Godfall for Ps 5. I don't know why they keep on MS can't give us new and old games. It can't be always the same old games year after year straight. Right now i have 0 interest in buying the next gen from MS while having the worse name for a next gen console.

Hopefully MS learned from their last event and show some actual gameplay this time. Fingers crossed!

@wrestlingdude: It wouldn't be right unless they made the information harder to understand without getting their clicks first, to quote them:

"You may have seen people talking about this lightly before, but we're extremely excited to confirm that Halo Infinite will be one of many first-party titles included in the Xbox 20/20 event in July. Get ready."

I hope it goes better than their last one. I was really surprised how poorly it was received some places (namely Youtube). I thought it was fine, but not as cool as that Unreal Engine 5 demo we were shown a couple days ago. I really didn't expect it to have more dislikes than likes.

@rickjamesia: It wasn't supposed to be as cool as the Unreal Demo. It was mislabeled. It was exactly what I was expecting except for how puny that overhyped Assassin's creed trailer/teaser was. People just expected too much. It's may and their getting all ramped up when this type of stuff doesn't usually start playing out till june/july.

My assumption is that Microsoft will be trickling game info right up until the big reveals. As per the usual it will likely increase in quality and information as it goes along. Why anyone would expect more is beyond me.

The reveal on PS5 hardware was likely a publicity thing since Sony has been getting alot of negative press for their lack of info. Again, a common approach by Sony.

Halo Infinite needs to be sort of a reboot, while keeping Master Chief at the front and center of the game.

@johnny0779: Infinite takes place long enough after 5 that it is sort of a reboot that gets to ignore most of that game's story threads.

Which could be a good thing, though I find it a little disappointing that we won't get much of a payoff for 5's cliffhanger ending and where it seemed like that was going

@johnny0779: Halo's needed a reboot for a while. They need to open that game up and turn it into anything but the linear shooter it's always been.

@mogan: my biggest concern and fear is Halo being turned into an open world game.

Im totally fine with a reboot. I'm always in for changing things up little bit.

But the last thing I want right now is ANOTHER open world adventure with light rpg elements and typical open world design.

I began to adore and lust for linear games this generation like I never would have thought possible.

@aross2004: A loot shooter? Nah, I don't think Halo needs to try to compete with Destiny, or become some kind of shared world experience. I'm pretty sure there's room for more kinds of shooters than current Halo or Destiny.

@louixiii: I think he means in terms of gameplay. As in going back to the roots of Halo. Though I for one like the new gameplay style.

@Lord_Sesshy: The last Halo was great imo. If anything, I hope they expand on it and maybe open up the levels a bit. The first Halo had huge levels.

@louixiii: Same. A mixture of the old and new would be the best thing, which from what we have seen from the Slipspace trailer it does look to have huge environments. (Not to mention some secret footage that was shown at the Halo Outpost Discovery conventions)

@just1mohr: Halo: Infinite will look good on the new engine, not like the UE5 demo, though. That wasn't a real game, for one. Secondly, UE5 won't even be in preview for 9-12 months, and the first UE5 engine will be FortNite a year from now.

@just1mohr: well if you read the Epic article anywhere, you would know that the Unreal 5 engine won't be ready for consoles until mid 2021...

Hope that helps your knowledge.

@johnny0779: You mean ready for devs. It's already PS5 (and I'm sure Series X) ready...but Sweeney did say that the demo on display was only made possible due to the speed of the PS5's SSD.

Just saying...

@louixiii:

But now we know that not totally true because UE5 is meant to run on multi platform. And it should scale up with.more power on other systems.

I couldn't find the original article. I looked at the link and it is pretty confusing. Since I can't definitively prove my point, I will remove my previous post.

@6t4gp: Don't do all that man. Hell, it might be true but that did sound kinda out there but who knows. Either way UE5 is going to run and be optimized for both platforms and either way, it's going to make games look gorgeous

@louixiii: no he didn't. Only made possible on the PS5 because of its SSD. And he went on to say it's possible on all next gen consoles..
