If you’re a fan of the Halo franchise, we have some good news for you. At E3 2019, the next installment in the Halo franchise will be on hand. Halo Infinite is basically the successor to Halo 5: Guardians that was originally launched back in 2015.
This was revealed by the head of 343 Industries Bonnie Ross speaking on an episode of IGN’s Unfiltered. Ross explained why the next installment of Halo took longer than before. The reason is that the developer chose to skip its more traditional three-year development cycle so it could develope a brand new engine, Slipspace, for the game.
Ross says, “The Halo engine is a very technical, engineering-focused engine. It’s super hard for creatives to work in. It’s super hard for a lot of creatives to work in, at one time. We did a ton of work, on Halo 4, on the engine, to get it to look… I think it looked amazing for being on the last generation on the last year of the platform.”
Ross also described Halo Infinite as being a “spiritual reboot”, but aside from that, we have no idea what we can expect. The game now confirmed to make an appearance at E3 2019, so we will learn more soon.
