  • Spartan customization will be Reach inspired. They said they know a lot of people liked that level of customization and will pleased with what Infinite has.
  • Infinite will have 4 player splitscreen
  • The Slipspace engine was developed with PC in mind when it comes to different hardware combinations.
  • Black undersuits for spartans are confirmed (all parts that aren't metal). The art department is aware the demand for it.
  • Halo 5 players who reach Spartan Rank 152(max rank) will receive an award in Halo Infinite.
  • 4 Player Split screen confirmed. No details if it's limited to SP or MP only.
  • An other reason for a new engine was that they hit a content limit with Halo 5.
  • 343i will have an internal tournament on an Infinite build at the start of the year.
  • They are in the process of rebuilding their Pro Team and Competetive Halo will play a role in the future.

I mean think about it they are on the verge of announcing new consoles, I'm sure they want a strong first-party title to show off the power of the new systems; what better way to do that then to have your biggest IP shown off in a brand new engine on MS newest hardware. I'm almost certain this is the route they are going
True, but also it’ll play as a safety blanket of sorts with multiplayer.

But it makes me wonder and worry a bit...will there be two separate versions, more than likely it’ll confuse some consumers when and after purchase.

Or will there be only one but there'll be some day one patch that’s required to experience it to its fullest (ie assets) on next gen. I’m ok with it being on disc, more than likely it’ll be on two (like RDR2). But if it’s only downloadable through Live than that’s highly, to quote Lemongrab, unnnnnaaaAAAAACCCCEEEEEEPPPPPTTTTTTAAAAABBBBLLLLLEEEEEEEE!

I have three kids, so four player split screen could be awesome. They're 2/4/6 years old, so by the time this game comes out they should be ready.

I'm not sure what we're getting in terms of freshness, but a new engine is a start.

You know that smell when you first pull your laundry from the dryer and you actually remembered to use Fabric softener sheets? Like, that kind of freshness..

I haven't been stoked for Halo is a long time. 343 ruined the franchise IMO with the terrible Halo 4 MP and then the terrible Halo 5 SP campaign.

I think I was in the 120-130 range when I stopped. Maybe I will give it a go if I am in the mood.

Not having a BR mode is a missed opportunity. The gameplay, weapons, and vehicles would make a great BR experience.

If there were to be a BR mode the it’d have to be on disc/day-one. If it were to be released later like Battlefield’s or Forge mode than there will be, well, a lot of moaning people, not in a good way.

BR is a fad. We don’t need it in Halo.

There isn't a person on the Halo dev team who isn't playing a BR right now.
To this, Easterling replied: "I'll tell you right now, the only BR we're really interested in is Battle Rifle." For those that don't know: Battle Rifle is one of the more iconic weapons in the series.

Nah. He wasn't responding to whether or not the team was playing Fortnite/PUBG. They are, trust me.

I’m ok if they put a BR mode in, doubt that’d it be splitscreen if it in, but if it is they’d better allow it to be in/part of Forge.

It looks like Halo Infinite will be more RPG-like, or at least include more RPG elements, than previous entries in the series. At least this is what appears to be the case, judging off a new job listing for the Xbox One and PC game.
