Microsoft and 343 Industries have released a new in-engine teaser clip for Halo: Infinite. This clip shows the number ‘117’, and Microsoft’s tweet reads “Your legend makes it more than just a number.”

For those wondering, this is Master Chief’s Spartan number. This could also be a hint at something else. For what it’s worth, this number does not translate to a possible release date. November 7th is Saturday, so yeah, that’s not when the game will come out.
Back in June 2020, Microsoft also released another teaser trailer for Halo: Infinite. That teaser trailer hinted at the Banished returning in this new Halo game.
Halo: Infinite 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. It’s also worth noting that the first in-engine trailer for Halo: Infinite, that came out in 2019, was running on the PC.
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 next week. This will happen during Microsoft’s Xbox Series X first-party games event.
Stay tuned for more!
