It seems like Microsoft may be priming up to reveal a new Halo game at E3 this year after all. No, not Halo 6– we already know that’s not supposed to be announced this year. But a new Halo game may be revealed nonetheless. According to Brad Sams, editor of Thurott.com (a site known for having leaked Microsoft news accurately in the past), Microsoft is preparing to reveal a Halo game called Halo Infinity at E3 this year.
Now, we don’t know what kind of game this title may be- is it a different genre altogether? After all, Halo Wars is an RTS franchise, so it wouldn’t be unprecedented. Maybe Halo Infinity is a battle royale game? Or maybe it’s a spin off in the vein of Halo 3: ODST or Halo Reach? Or, and this would be awesome, a new RPG in the Halo universe?
Of course, it might not be real or announced at all- the site has a good track record, but rumors are rumors unless officially confirmed, and Sams himself notes that plans may change going into Microsoft’s E3 show this Sunday. So, keep that in mind before you give yourself over to the hype entirely.
