Halo Infinite To Launch With Single-Player Mode Only

Microsoft's E3 game was strong this year, but it also highlighted a key point: the publisher is probably gearing up for the next generation of consoles.

Microsoft has offered a glimpse of the eagerly awaited new Xbox One Halo game, Halo Infinite, as well as showing off footage from other forthcoming releases.

This is what you need to know about Halo Infinite in 2018. While the name isn't as straightforward as many would expect, it's clearly the next installment of the Halo series. "This thrilling engine demo provides a glimpse into the future of the Halo franchise, leading it into new and unexpected directions". The new Master Chief helmet directly showcases our new art style. The report says that the game will be launched with the single-player mode only and that the multiplayer component will be added at a later date. That's especially true given the company's recent focus on the cloud and the abandonment of the phone hardware market.

What Systems is Halo Infinite Coming To?

Spencer said the company was increasing its investments in existing game franchises and looking to create new ones. As part of that presentation, the company has announced Forza Horizon 4 for Xbox One and PC as well as taken the opportunity to tease Halo Infinite for the same aforementioned platforms. It's not clear if it will be exclusive to the new system.

Of course, Microsoft had to announce a new Gears of War game. The Xbox Adaptive Controller (Xbox One, Windows 10) is designed for gamers with limited mobility. The "flighting program" will be similar to one used in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

With E3 2018 about to start in Los Angeles, major gaming publishers are holding pre-E3 press events before the video game trade show officially begins on Tuesday.
