Microsoft and 343 Industries have just released a teaser clip for the upcoming next-gen Halo game, Halo: Infinite. From the looks of it, this clip hints at the Banished returning.
In case you weren’t aware of, the Banished are a mercenary organization and splinter faction that rebelled against the Covenant This faction rose to power after the conclusion of the Human-Covenant War.
Halo Infinite continues the story of the Master Chief as the third chapter of the Reclaimer Saga. This is a direct sequel to Halo 5: Guardian, which unfortunately never came out on the PC. For what it’s worth, Microsoft still has no plans to bring the single-player campaign of Halo 5 on the PC. Thus, let’s hope that the game will have a recap intro or video.
Microsoft and 343 Industries will reveal the first gameplay trailer for Halo: Infinite in July. This will happen during Microsoft’s Xbox Series X first-party games event. While Halo: Infinite will be coming on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X, Microsoft will showcase the game’s next-gen version. Let’s just hope that Microsoft will not pull a FIFA 21 on us.

The game will be using a new engine, the Slipspace Engine. As 343 Industries noted, the engine is developed with PC in mind. Moreover, the team aims to treat PC gamers as first-class citizens.
Although Microsoft has not revealed any additional tech details, we can safely assume that the game will use DX12 and Ray Tracing. After all, this may be the first triple-A showcase game for the new Xbox console. Still, it’s unclear whether it will take full advantage of DirectX 12 Ultimate.
Halo: Infinite is coming to PC in Holiday 2020. Microsoft has not clarified whether the game will appear on Steam alongside its Windows 10 version.
Stay tuned for more!
