The developer of Halo Infinite 343 Industries has confirmed that the Xbox Series X title will appear during the Xbox 20/20 broadcast in July.
In an article on Halo Waypoint's official blog, 343 Industries kept their confirmation short and sweet, writing: “You may have seen people talk about it slightly, but we are extremely happy to confirm that Halo Infinite will be the one of the many first – party titles included in the Xbox 20/20 event in July. Be ready.”
Following the cancellation of E3 2020, Microsoft was forced to change its approach before the launch of the Xbox Series X, promising monthly Inside Xbox feeds that will give fans an idea of what they can expect from the next generation.
What to expect
While the May feed was more focused on third-party titles, like Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which will hit Xbox Series X later this year, the July feed will be dedicated to giving us a deeper look at the proprietary titles developed by Xbox Game Studios with promises of “first looks at new gameplay, ideas from development teams being optimized for the Xbox Series X and brand new game announcements.”
In its confirmation, 343 Industries did not explicitly say what we will see from Halo Infinite during the event, so we cannot be absolutely certain that gameplay will be shown.
However, Halo Infinite should still be an exceptional launch title for the Xbox Series X later this year and given the disappointment due to the lack of gameplay in May Stream, a first glimpse of next-generation Halo gameplay could be the only thing to increase the levels of excitement.
The July feed hasn't been given an exact date yet and beyond Halo Infinite, it's not entirely clear what will be featured – Xbox has 15 game studios and “a number” of between them should share what they worked on during the event. Maybe we will see more of Hellblade 2, or maybe these rumors of Fable 4 will finally be clarified. Anyway, we now know that we don't have too much time to wait for a new look at Master Chief.
