Microsoft's E3 2018 conference gave us a look at the next game in the Halo series.

The trailer was a cinematic trailer affair for Halo Infinite. It was a rather lovely trailer, and it was good to see Master Chief again at the end. Halo Infinity will reportedly focus more on Master Chief’s story, something 343 Industries learned the hard way with Halo 5.

It also looks like the story will be set on another Halo. You can clearly see the ring reaching up into the sky, and one other thing looked familiar: the Warthog.

Halo Infinite may launch with a single-player campaign only, with multiplayer to follow in 2020.

Microsoft has been saying for years now that it wants to get away from numbered Halo games, but some fans were still left scratching their heads when the new game was revealed at E3 as Halo: Infinite and not Halo 6. Now, 343's Jeff Easterling has spoken up to stress that Halo: Infinite is Halo 6, even if it's not specifically called that.

"It is Halo 6," Easterling said during a recent Mixer broadcast. "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."

Studio head Chris Lee already confirmed that Halo: Infinite is a direct sequel to 2015's Halo 5: Guardians. It's also been confirmed that the new game will focus more on Master Chief, which is notable because Halo 5 split time between Chief and Agent Locke.

343 has said that the studio is "making changes to how we approach things" with Halo: Infinite. 343 is also hoping to take players to "new and unexpected directions" with the game. These vague statements could mean a number of things, and the possibilities are exciting to think about. It seems encouraging that 343 isn't rushing things with Halo: Infinite, and while that game might not be out soon, Halo 5 and Halo: MCC continue to get new updates and refreshes on a semi-regular basis.

    Could backfire then but I guess the Cowboys took the same risk keeping Ezekiel Elliott about the place for so long.
