Back in August, it was announced that the next Halo game would not be launching alongside next-gen consoles and was instead pushed back to a vague 2021 release date. Now more information has been revealed, and Halo Infinite’s launch is now targeting a Fall 2021 release period.
It’s almost inevitable at this point that every game announced to come out this year will be delayed by some amount. Halo Infinite is the next title to get delayed this year, based on multiple reasons including the continued COVID-19 pandemic. This comes after Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines 2 was also delayed until 2021 with Dirt 5 following shortly after with a week’s delay.
When gameplay for the upcoming Halo Infinite debuted at the Xbox Games Showcase last week, it was only for the campaign, and multiplayer was noticeably lacking. After the showcase, 343 clarified that there will indeed be another Xbox Games Showcase where they would show off the multiplayer. But a new rumor suggests that Halo Infinite’s multiplayer could go free to play, along with a typical Battle Pass system, and now 343 have officially confirmed it.
The most recent Xbox Games Showcase just keeps on giving at the moment, almost everyday we hear some news about something from that livestream. Now it once again surrounds the Halo Infinite campaign gameplay, and the criticism surrounding the game’s graphics.
The official gameplay reveal for Halo Infinite’s campaign was unveiled last week at the Xbox Games Showcase livestream, and with it we got a good look at the newest Halo title to come to PC and Xbox later this year. But Halo Infinite looks like it’s taking the series in a different direction now, not just in terms of the story, but the gameplay has been changed considerably.
If you watched the Xbox Games Showcase the other day and saw the Halo Infinite campaign gameplay demo and thought that the graphics didn’t exactly blow you away, well you’re not alone. Many viewers online have expressed their reaction to the graphics on show for a supposedly next-gen game, which weren’t exactly very astonishing.
343 Industries are working hard on the next big Halo game, and we got our first glimpse of some proper gameplay for Halo Infinite yesterday at the Xbox Games Showcase. But since the showcase was about “just games” and “no business”, not a whole lot of extra juicy details were revealed. Luckily, the developers have given us a lot of information outside the official gameplay showcase for Halo Infinite yesterday.
The Xbox Games Showcase just debuted today, and with it Microsoft brought us our first proper look at Halo Infinite with a new stunning CGI trailer and gameplay demo showcasing some of the action we'll be getting up to when Halo Infinite launches later this year on PC and the Xbox Series X.
Change is afoot at Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries, a mere year before Halo Infinite is due to arrive as Project Scarlett launch title. Not only did creative director Tim Longo leave 343 Industries a couple of months ago but now executive producer Mary Olson has also announced she’s left.
Microsoft's E3 2019 Xbox press conference is arguably the most hyped it's been this decade. A string of pro-consumer moves have led us to a point where we eager to see what Microsoft is cooking up next. Microsoft has been snapping up studios left, right, and centre, and now it could be time to see the fruits of Ninja Theory, Playground Games, and other's labour.
Halo and Battle Royale has always sounded like the bacon and eggs of the multiplayer world. By which I mean they need to be put between two slices of bread and gobbled up pronto. It’s a series that popularised multiplayer FPS on consoles, as well as large maps and vehicles, and it basically looks like the perfect fit for Battle Royale. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see a naked Master Chief dropping from a Pelican and scrabbling around for a frying pan and his beloved assault armour.
