Bonnie Ross, head of 343 Industries, spoke to IGN about the future of the Halo series, and what they believe Halo Infinite will ultimately be.
According to her, the game will be a type of a soft-reboot, or a ‘spiritual reboot’, as they call it. She also went into some detail on what the series means to them and reflected on the two games they’ve made along with the Master Chief Collection that 343 Industries were responsible for:
“There has been a lot of introspective time to really reflect on what [we have] done as 343. Where have we made mistakes? Where have we hit it right? What does Halo mean to all of us? That trailer we did is what Halo means to the studio. Maybe it took us two games to get there, and I think we’ve done good things and bad things, but what does Halo mean to us? It is about hope, and wonder, and heroism, and humanity, and community, and bringing a community together. That’s what that trailer is, and that’s what we want to do.”
At this point in time, we don’t know much about Halo Infinite and we’re sure to expect quite a bit of info coming our way over the coming months. It’s expected to be released as a launch title for Microsoft’s next Xbox console.
