It has been claimed that 343 Industries is actively working on the next Halo campaign and that a pivot away from Halo Infinite is taking place as we speak. For months, those still clinging tightly to 2021’s Halo Infinite have been holding out hope that some kind of expansion will be offered up for the game’s campaign, but as time goes on, that’s seeming less and less likely.
The Next Generation
These reports come from the SG Bitcast, a gaming podcast hosted by ‘Seasoned Gaming’, and this specific tidbit of information was handed down by the site’s editor-in-chief, Ains. When asked about the series, Ains stated that there’s a team actively working on ‘the restructure that is building the next generation of Halo on Unreal.’
At the start of 2023, there were concerns regarding the future of Halo, especially amidst layoffs at Microsoft that impacted 343 Industries. Fans were reassured that Halo isn’t going anywhere, but at present, nobody knows what’s next for the series. Over time, the player count ebbs and flows, Halo Infinite keeps getting updated, and even the esports side of the series is plugging away in the background.
If there is a new Halo game in development, what would you like to see from it? It could be years before it hits the market – you’ve got plenty of time to mull that one over.
