When Phil Spencer took the stage at E3 2019 to announce that Halo Infinite would be the spearhead of Project Scarlett ‘s launch line-up, many wondered if the new chapter of the iconic Microsoft franchise would also come on Xbox One, as previously announced.
The doubts were promptly dissolved by the 343 Industries guys during a new streaming appointment on Mixer. Microsoft will remain faithful to what has been said in the past, and Xbox One users will not have to worry about not being able to take part in the new adventure of Master Chief.
Speaking of the quality and the inevitable gap that will occur between the One and Scarlett versions, 343 states that, having decided to develop Infinite with a completely new engine, it is taking advantage of all the means necessary to make the most of both consoles.
“Obviously it will look better on Scarlett and some crazy Ryzen PCs, but our intention is to treat Xbox One users as a first-class citizen, in a way that has not proved possible even with Halo 5.”
Halo Infinite will be released in the fall of 2020 on Windows 10 PCs, Xbox Scarlett and Xbox One. The title will be shown again at E3 next year, and will also receive a beta test with which you can try it in preview.
