KEY POINTS

  • "Halo Infinite" is currently in development
  • The game is scheduled to release later this year
  • "Halo Infinite" will launch on Xbox gaming consoles and Windows PC

A new set of leaks about the upcoming "Halo Infinite" has surfaced online ahead of the E3 2021 event. The details include information about the game's new art, its features and multiplayer component and what fans can expect from the game at the all-digital E3 event.

Microsoft's official flagship title for this year's holiday season, "Halo Infinite," will support Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos when it releases on Xbox gaming consoles and Windows PC. Dolby partnered with Microsoft last year.

Meanwhile, a new "Halo Infinite" artwork was published ahead of the game's anticipated grand reveal at the E3 2021, which will be held on June 13.

The artwork was first teased on May 26 at an event to announce the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase. During the announcement, only the upper-right portion of the artwork was shared. Industry insider Klobrille, on Saturday, revealed its full image on Twitter. 

Many fans anticipate that the upcoming joint conference of Bethesda and Xbox would reveal a lot of details about "Halo Infinite" following a disappointing reveal last year. They were hoping the studio would offer some deep dive about the game because the game's release was imminent. Unfortunately, this might not be the case, according to GamesBeat reporter Jeff Grubb.

On his "Game Mess Show," Grubb noted that there would not be any deep dive for "Halo Infinite" at the E3 2021. According to the video games reporter, creating assets for the showcase would steal away some development time. Grubb mentioned that the showcase would only focus on the game's multiplayer. 

Additionally, he shared that "Halo Infinite" would feature modes like Capture the Flag and several other new modes.

The information provided by Grubb makes sense since 343 Industries, the gaming studio behind "Halo Infinite," has not yet showcased any multiplayer gameplay of the upcoming title. With the multiplayer component of the game revealed, fans would get more ideas on how the game would look. It also works for the team since they won't need a whole new demo to share what they want to reveal to fans.

"Halo Infinite" is currently in development. The game is anticipated to release on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
