Halo Infinite revealed with stunning trailer at E3 2018

Halo Infinite revealed with stunning trailer at E3 2018

While Microsoft didn't have new consoles to announce outright, that didn't stop Xbox boss Phil Spencer from dropping a little tease about the future of the brand. That said, the engine demo stands as a "clear indication of the direction we are heading with our next game and a great snapshot of where our tech is right now".

But this wasn't Microsoft's only big news. It did not reveal financial terms of the studio acquisitions.

It's also about time that 343 Industries unveiled the next Halo game. Let's see if this new game can recapture that title's nostalgic magic.

Battletoads will make its return sometime in 2019 on the Xbox One family of consoles while a release for Windows 10 PCs was not explicitly announced.

"Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice" came out in August 2017 was developer Ninja Theory's attempt at an "indie AAA" game, meaning a project with a modest budget that didn't skimp on visuals or content. Even on the Switch are games like Mario Odyssey and Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. By entering into a letter of intent to acquire Undead Labs, Microsoft is signaling its commitment to growing the franchise and taking the zombie survival-fantasy genre to newheights.

343 added that waiting for a new Halo game can be difficult-indeed, it has been nearly three years since Halo 5 was released in 2015. We didn't see any logos in the trailer, so it could be any number of studios behind the game. "We believe these teams have the collective creative power and operational excellence to deliver the next industry game changers". Tell us in the comments section! There have been human moments in Gears (especially the tear-jerking Gears of War 3) and hopefully this newest entry will capture these characters. In fact, we can't actually verify that Rare is working on this game, but we'd be shocked if that wasn't the case.

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.

The Xbox One trails Sony's (SNE) PlayStation 4 in unit sales in the current generation of video game consoles, but Microsoft is undeterred.
