Microsoft announces Halo Infinite, heading to Xbox One and Windows 10

The Master Chief returns in Halo Infinite - the next chapter of the legendary franchise. Most notably, the "PC Gaming Show" and "Inside Xbox" showcases are set to take on June 11.

Halo 5 split players' time between Master Chief and Spartan Locke. Microsoft made the announcement during today during a press briefing ahead of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles today. This 3D action game blends the gameplay of Bloodborne with the themes of Kuon to create something new.

Their presser was chock-full of game announcements and trailers, including a new Forza Horizon, new Halo, new Gears, and updates on Crackdown and other titles.

Spencer is far from the only one talking about streaming: Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that streamed games will replace consoles some time after the next console generation, and EA has announced its own cloud streaming service. At E3 yesterday, it officially revealed the program. After all, the Xbox has the advantages of brand recognition, several big franchises, marketing muscle, and Microsoft money. Based on the trailer and other hints from 343 Industries, will Halo Infinite be the first truly open world game in the franchise? But it seems the gaming giants are getting ready for its arrival.

However, Microsoft has had a relationship with Ninja Theory more or less since the studio's inception: Microsoft published the debut game from Ninja Theory's first incarnation, Just Add Monsters, entitled Kung Fu Chaos.

The ambition of Halo Infinite necessitated new technology, developer 343 Industries wrote in a blog post yesterday.

The acquisitions and new studio will give Microsoft a deeper slate of games in years to come.

Obviously the major console makers, such as Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo, have to consider the future of gaming and how games are likely to be played.
