Halo Infinite is looking much clearer after another reveal at E3 2019. As part of the Xbox press conference, Halo Infinite was shown off with a brand new cinematic trailer. What's more, a release window of winter 2020 was confirmed - as well as its position as a launch title for Project Scarlett.
First announced as part of E3 2018, Halo Infinite was initially teased through a cryptic reveal trailer. Since then, more details about the project have become apparent, such as Halo Infinite's 4-player splitscreen, comprehensive PC support, and large customization options. Fans of the series still wanted to see more, though, and as such it was treated as good news that Halo Infinite would be at E3 2019.
Anticipation was high for E3 2019, with Xbox gamers hoping that Halo Infinite would be one of the major games shared by Xbox as part of its press conference. Thankfully, this proved to be the case, with Halo Infinite getting new trailer as part of the expo, alongside a holiday 2020 launch slate. Halo Infinite can be seen in more detail in the video below.
The trailer itself is in the void of space, where Master Chief is brought in from the cold thanks to a bit of serendipity. What our hero finds when he's woken up, however, is not much cause for celebration with human forces seemingly having been defeated. Never one to take a loss lightly, however, Master Chief heads out into the void to try and turn things around with some good, old-fashioned fighting.
What the trailer missed, though, was some gameplay footage. After an initial teaser at E3 2018, after an extra year in the oven Halo fans may have been hoping to see at least a snippet of the game in action. Instead, this more in-depth cinematic may have given a little more context, but it still leaves out a lot of what players have been waiting on.
At the very least Halo Infinite does now has a release window. The new Halo game will launch in the holiday season of 2020 as a launch title for the Xbox Scarlett, the next generation of Xbox. This means that Xbox will be desperate for Halo Infinite to truly be groundbreaking - after all, it won't just have to be a new entry in their most well-known franchise, but also a system seller.
