"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."

Halo Infinite[Note 1] is the upcoming sequel to Halo 5: Guardians and the third part of the Reclaimer Saga. It is being developed by 343 Industries, and will release on both Xbox One and PC platforms. Originally due to release alongside the Xbox Series X|S on November 10, 2020, the game has been postponed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic affecting development, among other factors and is set to release by Fall 2021. As of September 25, 2015, planning had already begun on the game, and its story was in production, with the writing process having already commenced in some capacity.[5] Halo Infinite will have a story that is “much more human” than Halo 5: Guardians',[6] and will “double down” on Master Chief, giving him more focus than he received in the previous game.[7]

Halo Infinite will likely feature the cooperative play system of Halo 5: Guardians.[6] Furthermore, it will support splitscreen[8] and it will have a beta prior to its release.[9] There will be no Battle Royale mode featured according to Jeff Easterling's claim “The only BR we're interested in is the Battle Rifle”, in response to the popular trend during a livestream.[10] Halo Infinite was not present at E3 2017, and at the time, Jeff Easterling stated in a Halo Waypoint blog post that its reveal “won't be soon”,[11] implying a longer than usual development cycle for a main Halo game.

Halo Infinite is built on an entirely new engine, titled the Slipspace Engine.[12] The game will also receive a beta.[13] Infinite will not feature loot boxes that can be purchased with real money.[14]

343 Industries employee Frank O'Connor has said Halo Infinite will not feature a Battle Royale mode. [21] Halo Infinite is being developed by 343 Industries using the new Slipspace Engine. According to Microsoft, Master Chief returns in Halo Infinite with "his greatest adventure yet to save humanity".[22] Halo Infinite will feature split screen again, in response to the backlash of its removal in the previous game. It will also have a beta prior to its release, described as an insider flight program.
