Halo Infinite is basically Halo 6, confirms 343 Industries

Mike Harradence Updated on by

Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries has confirmed that Master Chief's upcoming Xbox One sequel is, essentially, Halo 6. 

While it was pretty obvious this was the case — we already knew that Infinite would continue the narrative that was established in Halo 5: Guardians, after all — it's still good to have confirmation either way. 

Speaking during a Mixer broadcast, 343 Industries' Jeff Easterling said, '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's going on.'

Halo Infinite is being co-developed by 343 Industries and SkyBox Labs, and is so ambitious that it requires a brand spanking new game engine to power it. 

Oh, and don't get your hopes up for a battle royale mode, as it's probably not going to happen (phew).

Halo Infinite has yet to attract a release date.
