Closing out Xbox’s 2019 E3 Press Conference was the title that started it all and was a must have for the original Xbox console – Halo.
Master Chief is back and looking like a lime-green tank once again thanks to the new Slipspace engine and 343’s new art direction – combing the old and the new. Halo is back. This entry continues the Chief’s story from Halo 5: Guardians – it’s not a reboot but a “spiritual reboot” to the series in terms of looks, nods to the past, and musical direction (You may have noticed some familiar music in both of Infinite’s E3 trailers bow).
Unfortunately fans will have to wait even longer… every previous entry in the FPS titles for Halo has a 3 year gap between entries. Halo 5: Guardians, the previous entry, released in October 2015. Halo Infinite will be launching Holiday 2020.
The Master Chief returns in Halo Infinite – the next chapter of the legendary franchise launching holiday 2020 with Project Scarlett.
Developed by 343 Industries for Xbox One, Windows 10, and Project Scarlett, Halo Infinite continues the Halo 5: Guardians storyline and takes the franchise in ambitious, unexpected directions.
Powered by the all-new Slipspace Engine.
However, this means that for the first time since Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo Infinite will be a console launch title as Xbox is set to release their next entry in the “Xbox One” ecosystem – Project Scarlett.
Halo Infinite has already been announced to run on Xbox One and Windows 10, but Project Scarlett will be the console platform where this title will shine!
The next Halo FPS title has been revealed, Halo Infinite. Halo Infinite is the next entry in the Reclaimer Saga and follows the Master Chief after the events of Halo 5. Coming to Windows 10 and Xbox One.
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.
Xbox One and Windows 10 Exclusive.
Here’s breakdown of the Halo Infinite Trailer from E3 2018. Halo 6 has been revealed and it’s called Halo Infinite. The game features a new engine called the Slipspace Engine, a new classic inspired art style, and is set after the events of Halo 5 on what appears to be Installation 07.
Halo Infinite has already confirmed to have split screen support, multiple betas through a flighting program, black undersuits, a more Master Chief focused story campaign, and will release exclusively on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.
Here’s how you can record 4K 60fps gameplay on Xbox One X using the built-n Game DVR. All you need is an Xbox One X, a 4K Display, and an USB 3.0 storage device. No capture card is required, but a capture card will always be better.
For those wondering, the following Halo 5: Guardians gameplay was captured on Xbox One X using the built-in Game DVR. The recordings were not altered in post.
For those interested. The built-in Game DVR on Xbox One X records 4K 60fps footage around 25Mbps. For reference, Elgato’s HD60 Pro internal capture card can record up to 1080p 60fps footage at 60Mbps. Elgato’s 4K60fps internal capture card is not available until Nov 21st so I don’t know it’s bitrate.
Also keep in mind YouTube has a not-so-good compression setting. However despite the lower bitrate recording and YouTube’s compression, the footage still looks really good but the games look even better when you’re playing them on a 4K display.
Know Your Enemy: The Story and Characters of Halo Wars 2.

New April (formerly March) REQ Teaser for Halo 5: Guardians briefly showing off a new Suppressor, armor sets, new Warzone map, Teeth Assault Rifle skin, and a Gauss Mantis?! Update titled Ghosts of Meridian.
Shortly after the announcement of Halo 5: Guardians, a rumoured Halo: The Master Chief Collection surfaced and spread like wildfire. Just want to say, nothing has been confirmed. This was being reported my engadget, then IGN, Polygon, and more started picking up this story. But this isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumors of bringing Halo games to the Xbox One.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is apparently coming this year for Xbox One and it will have Halo 1, 2, 3 and 4. This collection will not include ODST, Reach, or Halo Wars as Master Chief wasn’t the main protagonist in those games.
This could also be what Bonnie Ross meant when she announced Halo 5: Guardians. She stated that it’s “…a “journey,” rather than a destination – and that journey definitely begins in 2014 with a giant leap, rather than one small step.”
Now if you remember back to the NeoGaf leaks from back in January, nut-kernel stated that there would be 2 editions for Halo 2 Anniversary.
A Collector’s Edition – access to Halo 5 beta, and
A War Collection – which would have access to the Halo 5 beta and on top of that ports of Halo 3 and Halo 4 for Xbox One.
This leaker has been pretty spot on so far. Perhaps this War Collection is actually the now rumoured Halo: The Master Chief Collection. What do you guys think? Perhaps there could be a stand-alone Halo 2 Anniversary and also a Halo: The Master Chief Collection which would contain Halo CE to Halo 4 with a remastered Halo 2 Anniversary.
Frank O’Connor and Rob Semsey have both shot down two of the more popular theories/speculations in relation to the unknown Spartan-like figure in the Halo 5: Guardians teaser image.
It’s not female and is not Cortana in any shape or form. So that leaves the question what is it? Could it be a playable character just like the introduction of the Arbiter in Halo 2. Or could it be an enemy? Leave your thoughts!
Update: Josh Holmes makes it even more apparent this is a new character and a male!
For everyone speculating about the mysterious Spartan in Halo 5: Guardians, he’s not Palmer (or Cortana!). He’s a NEW character. 🙂 #Halo
