Halo: Infinite Is Halo 6 According to Microsoft

At this year’s E3, one of Microsoft’s biggest guns on stage was the reveal of a new Halo title called “Halo: Infinite.” If you’re one of the many people wondering why Microsoft didn’t call it “Halo 6” or if it is Halo 6, then worry no more.

In a recent Mixer broadcast,(via GameSpot) 343 Industries’ Jeff Easterling has confirmed that Halo: Infinite is indeed Halo 6 — even if it’s not called directly by that title.

It is Halo 6. You should just consider it Halo 6. Don’t think of it as a weird prequel kind of thing. It’s the next story. It’s the next chapter in what is going on.

Aside from that tidbit, we also know that Master Chief will be the central protagonist in Halo: Infinite, which is a departure from Halo 5 where players divided time playing as the Chief and Agent Locke.

Halo: Infinite is Halo 6 and is a direct continuation. Got that? Well, that’s comforting, no? Let’s hope Microsoft releases gameplay soon.
