As you might know already, Microsoft and 343 Industries announced Halo Infinite at E3 2018 a few days ago. One of the most surprising revelations about the game is the fact that it will have a brand new game engine.
Many people thought Halo 6 would have just had a modified game engine of the one used in Halo 5: Guardians. However, 343 Studio Head Chris Lee said on Twitter that Halo Infinite needed a new game engine to meet the ambitious scope of the new game.
In related news, it was also confirmed that Steve Downes will be back to be the voice actor of Master Chief. Downes has played the character in Halo 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. It’s great that he will be back as people would have missed him if someone else played the role instead.
