Halo 6 wasn’t named during Microsoft’s E3 2018 keynote a few months ago, but you’ve already seen it under a different title.
343 Industries, which develops games for the Xbox-only franchise, confirmed that its latest installment will serve as a direct sequel. It turns out that Halo: Infinite is indeed Halo 6 despite all the confusion following the announcement. When Microsoft unveiled Halo: Infinite, it sounded more like a prequel than a sequel.
The game will explore Master Chief’s personal story; however, 343’s Jeff Easterling says it should be considered Halo 6 no matter what.
Here’s what Easterling said during a Mixer broadcast:
“It is Halo 6. You should just consider it Halo 6. Don’t think of it as a weird prequel kind of thing. It’s the next story. It’s the next chapter in what is going on.”
Microsoft and 343 might’ve confused Halo fans for a bit, but at least now we have clarification on what Halo: Infinite is. It won’t be a prequel like Bungie’s Halo: Reach. Rather, the game will just follow Halo 5: Guardians and drop the number from its name.
In the past, the studio-publisher duo told everyone that it would no longer use numbers for Halo games. Both sides think it’ll allow the franchise to go in “new and unexpected directions” that aren’t necessarily linear.
The release date for Halo: Infinite doesn’t have any details. Yet it’ll probably arrive in late 2019 after a lengthy stay in development.
