Halo Infinite is the start of a platform for the future, 343 Industries' Chris Lee confirmed. Lee said that Infinite will grow over time versus going with numbered Halo titles.
Yesterday, 343 Industries and Xbox finally showed us some Halo Infinite gameplay. And while many Halo fans are excited to dive into the open world and take on the Banished, others have not been impressed with the visuals. However, we have no doubts that 343 Industries will deliver a fantastic Halo title later this year.
Judging by the comments from Halo Infinite studio head, Chris Lee, who revealed a couple of new details about the game shortly after the announcement, it looks like Halo Infinite is set to become Xbox's Destiny-like title.
Lee says that Halo Infinite is a start of a new platform for the next ten years. Instead of going with numbered titles, the studio have decided to grow Infinite over time with fresh content.
"Halo Infinite is the start of our platform for the future. We want Infinite to grow over time, versus going to those numbered titles and having all that segmentation that we had before," Lee said.
The developers' aim is to keep the open-world title attractive and engaging for players over the next decade, which reminds a lot of Destiny 2 model. "It's really about creating Halo Infinite as the start of the next ten years for Halo and then building that as we go with our fans and community," he added.
Earlier rumours suggested that Halo Infinite would indeed be a GaaS title with large multiplayer and long-term support. It looks like this is the case but we should wait until 343 Industries reveal more details about the gameplay before jumping to any conclusions.
