343 Industries have officially confirmed that we can expect to see Halo Infinite during Microsoft’s first-party Xbox Series X showcase that’s scheduled for this July. The news came from a post on Halo Waypoint, where the developers state that “we’re extremely excited to confirm that Halo Infinite will be one of many first-party titles included in the Xbox 20/20 event in July”.
While many people expected Halo Infinite to appear in some form at the event, considering that Halo is the banner franchise for Xbox, the question now becomes whether we’ll be shown “gameplay” in the same way as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, or some actual gameplay. Who knows at this point?
We’re also left to wonder what other games will appear at the event, but industry insider Shinobi602 has left comments on ResetEra suggesting that Xbox are planning to go all out at the event: “The idea was always to basically lay all the cards on the table from first party and have a big blowout. And there’s a ton of stuff to be excited about. Definitely big AAA XGS reveals, other big third parties on stage (not necessarily exclusive). It might change a bit at this point in time given COVID-19, but you could say that’s the aim. I’m personally really excited for their show.”
