After hearing of recent reports that Microsoft’s latest entry into the Halo series; Halo: Infinite, might be a launch title for the next generation of Xbox consoles, many fans were wondering if it were true that the game will be skipping the Xbox One, what with the rumors of new hardware being shown off at E3 this year looming around.
Well it looks like these speculations have been put to rest abruptly thanks to Halo franchise development director Frank O’Connor. In a response to a user on Twitter O’Connor stated “I have no idea what leak you’re talking about, but Halo Infinite will be released for Xbox One and appropriately spec’d PCs.”

This may come as a relief to players that they won’t have to wait until the next generation of hardware to hit the shelves to play the “spiritual reboot” to the Halo series. Although there are technically no other credible sources to confirm that next generation consoles are definitely going to be shown off. All of these developments are currently just rumors surrounding this highly anticipated title until proven otherwise.
Currently there is still a lot we don’t know about Halo: Infinite other than the facts that it’s the first mainline entry into the series since 2015’s Halo 5: Guardians, and that the game is being developed on a brand new engine called SlipSpace, which was shown off in a trailer at last year’s E3. Now that we know that there is more news coming at this years E3 and that the game definitely won’t be skipping the Xbox One, fans can rest easy while they wait for more to be revealed this June.
