Microsoft Announces Halo Infinite With Tiny Teaser

Microsoft kicked off its E3 conference today with a brand new Halo game announcement, and just as all Xbox exclusives nowadays, the game is also coming to Windows 10.

Outside of the renewed focus on Master Chief, relatively little is known about the game's storyline and details, with the reveal trailer of the game being more focused on the landscape than characters or plot.

It's also about time that 343 Industries unveiled the next Halo game. Are you hoping to see Halo 5: Guardians on PC?

Although none of the Japanese developed games appear to be Xbox exclusive - the developers, it seems, not yet quite that confident - it's a hugely promising sign that Microsoft has been able to win them back.

Lee said the team at 343 is well aware of the feedback that Halo 5 strayed too far from Master Chief.

Microsoft and Electronic Arts revealed they are working on their own game streaming services.

Even more gaming news!

The result is the Slipspace engine, and the E3 trailer demonstrated its "exciting potential".

It brings Undead Labs, Playground Games, Ninja Theory, and Compulsion Games into Microsoft Studios.

At its E3 event, Microsoft shined a spotlight on upcoming Xbox One games from third-party publishers.

Compulsion Games. As "We Happy Few" nears its full, multiplatform release on August 10, Microsoft has entered into a letter of intent to acquire Montreal-based Compulsion Games. We are thrilled to welcome five new studios into the Microsoft family.

"We commit the full breadth of resources at Microsoft to deliver on the future of play". While this could be stretching to describe Halo's traditional, signature open-sandbox gameplay, this language does appear to sound much grander than what longtime fans have experienced and come to expect from a Halo game.

While the total amount of new games announced by Xbox was itself impressive though, you could argue that anyone can have a good year.
