Halo Infinite probably not coming to Xbox One generation consoles

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Halo Infinite probably not coming to Xbox One generation consoles

Makes no sense. So it’ll be in development for another 3+ years? No way.

Halo Infinite is Halo 6. 343i is dropping the numbered games.

So that's mean there will be no more Halo mainline on current gen consoles if Digital Foundry correct ? 

Yeah. That's another reason I expect it to come to XBO. Xbox usually gets 2 mainline Halo each gen.

Actually in marketing and sales point is not make any sense or traditional point (Xbox consoles usually have 2 Halo games each generation) But probably the situation are forcing  343i build better Halo games, it's possible that they are extending the time to make a better Halo games,  even if they have to sacrifice and abandoning current gen consoles.

I mean, dev cycles of AAA games have gotten longer so this isn't surprising.



No... it will be on OG X1. Maybe the X1X and PC will have visuals well beyond OG X1. But even if that's the case the OG hardware can have scaled back graphics and settings.

We have to naturally assume the engine is scalable for varying specs, like CryEngine or Frostbite Engine. Which allowed for next gen quality graphics while still viable on last gen specs.

Tech demos like this one run on powerful PCs that are beyond current consoles hardware capacity.

Scroll down just a bit. It's an Xbox One title.

Confirmed by 343i's own Frank O'Connor over on ResetEra.



Doesn't fall in line with their forward compatible future, so I'm pretty possible it'll be on all Xbox One consoles.

Depends, the Halo franchise has generally had pretty consistent releases without unusually long development periods. Given there was no release expectation given, I would assume 2020. Which is long for Halo, but it seems like this one is gonna be really ambitious.

Lets also consider Gears of War. When you think about it, its actually incredible how quickly MS purchased the Gears IP, put in the hands of a new studio, and had the Gears 4 on the market. A very polished product with a lot of content. They did that in under 3 years.
