Halo Infinite Announced At Xbox's E3 Briefing

Once the acquisitions are complete, Microsoft will have 11 game development studios.

The new game will focus strongly on Master Chief and the Halo universe itself, with its main focus being on 'making the world a little bit more realistic and compelling'.

Sony's PlayStation 4 has overshadowed the Xbox for the majority of this console generation, but at E3, Microsoft has come out swinging.

Playground Games is best known for its work on the Forza franchise. And even the faster, more expensive Xbox One X at $500 ($450 for a limited time) doesn't make the system feel as snappy as you would expect.

Phil Spencer, Executive President of Gaming at Microsoft addresses the audience at the Xbox 2018 E3 briefing in Los Angeles, California on June 10, 2018 ahead of the 24th Electronic Entertainment Expo which opens on June 12.

Experts say the Trudeau spat and the likelihood of tariffs from the European Union and Canada will result in a trade war. Trump has already kick-started an investigation into auto imports , which could result in tariffs on foreign vehicles.

Some members will be able to get an early look at the game through testing, though.

While the total amount of new games announced by Xbox was itself impressive though, you could argue that anyone can have a good year.

However, Microsoft has had a relationship with Ninja Theory more or less since the studio's inception: Microsoft published the debut game from Ninja Theory's first incarnation, Just Add Monsters, entitled Kung Fu Chaos. The real "wow" factor, and proof that Microsoft is serious about tackling its software drought, was the announcement of five new developers becoming first party studios, developing exclusively for Microsoft from here on out. Beyond that, the company launched a new studio headed by Darrell Gallagher, who formerly headed the studio behind the relaunch of Tomb Raider. So for Halo Infinite, developer 343 Industries is refocusing on the saga's main, green-armored protagonist.

Spencer kept mention of these new consoles very brief. "Our answer? We commit and harness the full breadth of our resources at Microsoft to deliver on the future of play".
