The original Halo was the key title for the original Xbox launch, so it’s fitting that the latest iteration of the franchise, Halo Infinite, will be launching Xbox’s latest console, currently codenamed Project Scarlett.

The Xbox E3 briefing gave us a good, long look at the latest entry in the series, running on the new Slipspace game engine on the prototype machine. It’s fair to say that it looks pretty wild, too.

While it’s mostly story stuff currently with scarce little in the way of gameplay, we were very pleased to learn that we’ll see the return of split-screen play. Welcome back, Master Chief!

Halo Infinite will be a launch title for Project Scarlett – read more about it here – towards the end of 2020, and is also slated for Xbox One release.
