E3 2018: Watch the Halo Infinite reveal from Microsoft's event

Xbox One X ‘Halo Infinite’ Revealed In Trailer at E3 With Master Chief

Without disclosing timing or details, Microsoft officials said they are "deep into" building more Xbox consoles (plural), and that they'll include AI technologies to help make gaming more immersive.

The game is being developed by 343 Industries in the new Slipstream Engine, which we don't know much about yet but it will undoubtedly be an improvement on past Halo engines. Whether or not there's any substance to that rumour, Halo Infinite is clearly some time off and its form is still in flux.

Microsoft is adding five new game studios, one it is creating in Southern California and another four it is buying, Xbox team chief Phil Spencer said.

As Polygon reports, away from games Microsoft made two significant announcements.

Unlike in previous years, when Microsoft took over the Galen Center for its E3 press event, this year's briefing will be held in the Microsoft Theater at LA Live right outside of the Los Angeles Convention Center. He boasted that the company's E3 lineup is its "most diverse gaming portfolio in every measure". The earliest projection for the game's release is late 2019, considering that the game will be running on a brand new engine dubbed SlipSpace. But it wasn't just about new games, but also how to play them. If true, it would probably be an always online experience with a strong live services component rather than a traditional singe-player game.

Meanwhile, Microsoft gave a first look at several games coming soon to multiple platforms, including Cyberpunk 2077 (from Witcher III developer CD Projekt Red), Tom Clancy's The Division 2, Devil May Cry 5 and Dying Light 2.

Although we can't be entirely sure of what the distant future holds for gaming but it seems that for Microsoft consoles will be a part of it for a while yet. And that engine will power the game for both Xbox One and Windows 10, a major step for the typically Xbox-focused franchise.
