Microsoft teases Halo Infinite at E3 2018

Microsoft teases Halo Infinite at E3 2018

"We know that exclusive games from Microsoft Studios is what originally turned so many of us into Xbox fans", Spencer said at E3.

And yet, in spite of the 50 game trailers shown on-stage at the Microsoft Theater that included a new Halo game and Gears of War 5, there was something desperately missing: any mention of virtual reality. Microsoft already supports in-home game streaming from Xbox One consoles to Windows 10 PCs.

E3 2018 coverage at GameSpot: Wall-to-wall coverage of the show from our sister site, GameSpot. The latest game in the Forza Horizon series is going to be bringing some interesting new features with it, including a new setting and dynamically shifting seasons.

Microsoft has been pelted with criticism for lacking hit video games exclusively for play on Xbox, while Sony has dominated this console generation with PlayStation 4 models boasting a cornucopia of coveted titles.

Microsoft threw everything and the kitchen sink at the audience during its E3 2018 keynote. Its investment into cloud-based gaming with Microsoft AI is interesting, with game streaming clearly high on its list of priorities.

"At Microsoft, we are committed to empowering gamers to play the games they want, with the people they want, where they want".

But this wasn't Microsoft's only big news. They also picked up Playground Games who developed the Forza Horizon games and were revealed to be supposedly to be using that expertise on another open world title.

The last time we saw a proper game in the Halo series was with the fifth game, Guardians, about three years ago. If this trailer is any indication, the game's development team at 343 Industries intends to right a very critical wrong with this next entry.
