Halo 6 release date, trailer and news


Halo has long been Microsoft’s killer IP, and one of those franchises that acts as an incentive for people to upgrade their existing Xbox console. The series has had its ups and downs over the years, especially with Halo 5 proving to be a major disappointment for anyone who has a stake in the single-player campaign. Halo 6, now officially known as ‘Halo Infinite,’ will hopefully be a return to form, and remind people why Halo has been so highly regarded in the past.

[Update: Microsoft has just low-key revealed Halo Infinite, stay tuned to this page for by-the-minute updates.]

The third installment of the ‘Reclaimer Saga’, Halo Infinite will pick up after the conclusion of Halo 5: Guardians – which saw Cortana and the other ‘Created’ AI seize control of the galaxy. The plot will likely feature Master Chief and his allies resisting the new regime, and restore freedom and liberty to humans and aliens alike.

It’s being developed by 343 Industries, the same people who developed Halo 4 and 5 after taking over the franchise from Bungie. It’s also being developed using a new engine known as the ‘Slipspace Engine,’ and appears to be based on one of the many Halo ring worlds.
