In a new update from the developers of Halo Infinite, fans have discovered hidden audio files, judging by which 343 Industries does not abandon the foundation laid in Halo 5, even if the latter part was not well received.
Halo Infinite was due out back in November 2020 with the launch of the new Xbox consoles, but it was postponed after community backlash following the first gameplay demo. We know Halo Infinite will be a new take on the series set in a massive open world. But what the story will be about is still not clear.
In the new audio files, fans found Master Chief and Halsey talking. The message says that Cortana has taken control of a large part of the galaxy. In turn, this prompted speculation that she would turn from a support character to a key antagonist of the story.
The developers are still planning to make Halo Infinite a spiritual relaunch of the series, but this does not mean that the game will abandon the concepts and plot elements that were served in Halo 5. So the result may be ambiguous.
The release of Halo Inifnite is scheduled for 2021, but there is no exact date yet.
