In a new community update straight from the horse’s mouth, 343i’s community manager John Junyszek had a few interesting tidbits to share about the future of the Halo series, little of it new – but its nice to know they’re thinking about the fans. There’s also two new pieces of concept art, which I’ll sprinkle throughout this blog.
The last time we really spoke about Halo Infinite was when we debuted the Discover Hope trailer at E3 earlier this year. We know that’s a long time to go without saying much about a Halo game, but please trust me when I say that the Halo hype train that kicked off two weeks ago with Halo: Reach will not be slowing down at all in 2020.– John Junyszek, 343i
Junyszek re-confirmed a few features and details about Halo Infinite’s 2020 release. Infinite will indeed be coming to the entire Xbox One family of devices, as well as Windows PCs and – of course – Xbox Series X (formerly known as Project Scarlett). The game follows Master Chief’s story “some time” after Halo 5: Guardians’ conclusion.
343 has also confirmed that they’re beginning Flighting Programs to start playtesting Infinite, and that they’ve assembled an internal “Pro Team”, which could mean that they’re monitoring the way they build out competitive multiplayer and esports aspects of Infinite very closely. This is good to hear. They close out by saying “If you liked the level of armor customization options in Halo: Reach, you will be pleased.” This does, indeed, please me.
All in all, there’s a lot to be excited about in 2020, Halo Infinite being a big reason. We’ll be sure to keep you posted as any new details emerge. Happy Holidays!
