INFINITE With Surprise Trailer at E3 — Microsoft Reveals HALO

The lack of a number in the title and the name-drop of a new engine - dubbed "Slipspace" - also suggest this is no ordinary follow-up.

Other titles unveiled include Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, a new franchise from Activision set in feudal Japan; Kingdom Hearts III, marking the series' first appearance on an Xbox console; Devil May Cry 5; and Cyberpunk 2077, a new franchise from the creator of The Witcher games. Microsoft promises that they'll be improving the FastStart algorithm over time.

Microsoft is to double the size of its first-party development ecosystem, by acquiring four studios and creating an entirely new studio.

This included a brand-new studio, The Initiative, and the acquisition of some truly fantastic studios already doing great work.

There are a few more details on the blog of developer 343 Studios that give you some very brief ideas of what exactly Halo Infinite is. Whether this is the sixth main series Halo game or an offshoot is yet to be known. It has acquired U.K. -based Playground Games and has letters of intent to buy Ninja Theory of Cambridge, U.K.; Undead Labs of Seattle; and Compulsion Games of Montreal. Both feature unpredictable, player-driven gameplay that results in hilarious videos more often than most games. It's a pretty strong argument if you own an Xbox One.

"When we started this project, the team's vision for the game was ambitious", Studio Head Chris Lee said.

"Our growth strategy is to continue to expand the worlds that players love, while developing all-new exclusive games that deepen their engagement with our platform".

However, as we just reported upon Hitman 2 and Just Cause 4 recently - and we didn't have a lot of info about Just Cause 4 - I've embedded that Avalanche Studios and Square Enix trailer immediately above.

"The world of gaming is on an historic growth path", Spencer said at the late Sunday Xbox media event.

There's been no fighting game specific cues as of yet and it's wholly possible that we won't see any directly FGC-related content in today's conference, but the well is deep and the possibilities are endless. "This thrilling engine demo provides a glimpse into the future of the Halo franchise, leading it into new and unexpected directions". There really haven't been any substantive leaks regarding a new game in the ultimate Xbox franchise, but a Halo 6 announcement would be an easy way to get Xbox One owners excited about the future of the console.

If these documents are accurate - and assuming Microsoft doesn't change its plans - the publisher plans to aggressively launch multiple hardware items over the next two years, culminating in a next-gen games console.

Phil Spencer said that the company's cloud engineers are working to bring console-quality games streaming to any device.
