Halo


 

Halo 6 is here, and it’s called Halo Infinite.

We’ve known that Halo Infinite was in development since it debuted at this year’s E3. We got a pretty neat cinematic and a tiny bit of information out of the conference there, including the fact that the game stars Master Chief. Now, however, 343 Industries has revealed a little more, including that Infinite is officially the same game as what would be Halo 6.

“It is Halo 6,” Jeff Easterling said during a recent Mixer stream (via GameSpot). “You should just consider it Halo 6. Don’t think of it as a weird prequel kind of thing. It’s the next story, the next chapter in what is going on.”

Apparently, moving away from straightforward, numbered games is something that 343 Industries has wanted to do for a while. Way back in 2014, founder and studio head Bonnie Ross revealed to GamerHeadlines that she wouldn’t have called Halo 4 “Halo 4” if she’d had her way, and was waiting for a chance to “drop the number.” After Halo 5: Guardians sported both a number and a title, it seems that Halo Infinite has finally gone all the way and dropped the number system entirely.

Halo Infinite is currently in development for Xbox One and PC.
