Halo Infinite Represents “The Next 10 Years For Halo,” Says Dev
While there are still several months left until release, Halo fans are surely awaiting the long-brewing return of Master Chief in the upcoming Halo Infinite. From the reveal of the game’s stunning box art to the first gameplay shown at the Xbox Games Showcase, the past week has been a particularly eventful one for the upcoming entry. With everything that’s been shown so far, fans appear to have a pretty expansive journey ahead of them when launch rolls around, with a great deal more beyond planned by developer 343 Industries.
Recently speaking with IGN, Studio Head Chris Lee spoke about the 343’s plans with the ambitious new title, calling it representative of “the next ten years for Halo” and suggesting players won’t likely see a sequel title for a very long while. “Halo Infinite is the start of our platform for the future,” Lee said. “We want Infinite to grow over time, versus going to those numbered titles and having all that segmentation that we had before. It’s really about creating Halo Infinite as the start of the next ten years for Halo and then building that as we go with our fans and community.”
On the surface, Halo Infinite surely sounds like it might be a live-service title in the like of Destiny 2 or Warframe. However, the outlet indicated that 343 intends to tell this new Master Chief story in a different, but similar manner, instead injecting “new story experiences” and “evolved” technical updates periodically after release. One such update is confirmed to add ray tracing to the game, which will introduce various new visual upgrades “sometime after launch.” On the flip side, there’s currently nothing to be said about where these add-on adventures may take the Chief next, but that’s not likely to be unveiled until after the game actually hits shelves.
Halo Infinite releases for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X sometime this Holiday 2020.
