Halo Infinite may be next-gen, and may be single-player only

Halo Infinite release date rumour

Halo Infinite is coming to PC but the details regarding that have only got hazier since that announcement. The impressive on-stage reveal we got at Microsoft’s E3 conference this weekend was in fact an engine demo, and further rumours suggest the next Halo will launch without multiplayer.

The ambition of Halo Infinite necessitated new technology, developer 343 Industries wrote in a blog post yesterday. The result is the Slipspace engine, and the E3 trailer demonstrated its “exciting potential.” 

Here is everything we know about the Halo Infinite release date.

“We still have a long way to go until we ship the game, so things will certainly evolve between now and the release of Halo Infinite,” studio head Chris Lee says. “Though the engine demo is a clear indication of the direction we are heading with our next game and a great snapshot of where our tech is right now.”

To see what all the fuss is about, make sure you watch Halo Infinite’s E3 trailer, and catch up on everything that happened at the Xbox conference.

Beyond that, there’s a rumour doing the rounds about the eventual shape the game might take. Brad Sams, the editor of Thurrott known for reliable Microsoft leaks, suggests that the single-player portion of Infinite could arrive by the end of 2019 at the earliest – with multiplayer expected later in 2020.

We’ve contacted Microsoft for comment. Whether or not there’s any substance to that rumour, Halo Infinite is clearly some time off and its form is still in flux.
