Halo Infinite announced, powered by Slipspace Engine, coming to Windows 10

A new "Halo" game was announced on Sunday afternoon: "Halo Infinite" will be the next game in the smash-hit franchise, and it's coming to the Xbox One.

Microsoft showed off not one, not two, but three new Gears of War games that are now in development.

Halo Infinite is powered by a new game engine created by Halo developer 343 Industries, called the Slipspace Engine.

They also noted that Master Chief will have a more prominent role in the game than he did in Halo 5.

Are you excited for Halo: Infinite? Spencer said Microsoft is "dedicated to perfecting your experience everywhere you want to play; your Xbox, your PC and your phone".

E3, short for Electronic Entertainment Expo, officially opens Tuesday, but several large game publishers and hardware makers are holding preshow events.

Marcelo Predicts Neymar Switch, Says Cristiano Ronaldo 'Doesn't Own Real Madrid'
The front page of Diario Record has a photograph of Ronaldo with the headline: "Ronaldo will leave Real - Irreversible decision ". The presentation comes amid the uncertainty in Madrid as to whether the Portuguese will still be their player next season.

More exciting still, the next generation of Xbox consoles are already being worked on.

Interestingly, Spencer also detailed that Microsoft's cloud engineers are building a game streaming network to unlock console-quality gaming on any device.

Other studios include Undead Labs (State Of Decay), Playground Games (Forza Horizon) and Compulsion Games (We Happy Few, Contrast). That's pretty much the extent of what was explicitly mentioned in the trailer, although, given the appearance of a hoverbike halfway through, one might wonder if they will show up in the final game.

Adding further a Microsoft press release underlined that the addition of these creative teams "reinforces Microsoft's vision for gaming, which starts with a deep commitment to original content".

"We are now at a moment of exceptional creativity in gaming", said Spencer. But, it looks as though players will be side-by-side with 343 Industries over the course of development, including being able to playtest the game at certain stages.
