3 Years of waiting for a glimpse of a new engine?
We also have the MCC updates to look forward to which will include new content at some point. Whether that be more H2A maps, ODST firefight or maybe even Reach in about a year or so (I can dream, can't I?).seanonix wrote:Eh, it will go quick.

You should read this :Snockooz wrote:I don't understand why they had to make another new engine. They had made a new one for Halo 5 and Halo 1-4 were all on the same engine. Was the Halo 5 engine so bad that they really needed to make a new one so soon bad and waist so much time in the process? All that time could have been put into the game. If Halo 5's was soo bad why not just use some of the other really good engines out there? It's not like people are having wet dreams over the idea of Halo games using engines made just for them. The vast majority of people don't care what engine the game in running just that the game is good.
Agreed.

And throughout summer we're probably going to get more news for the game, release date, game demos ect. Its a promising start, but the trailer definitely leaves an almost infinite amount of questions unanswered (pun definitely intended).
I understand your point of view on this, and that this is how you perceive this. But don't forget that this is a engine demo and not the game itself what you may have hoped for, even though it looks like an exploration setting, as it does to me too. Personally I really like that. Different sort of life-forms on planets/rings have always been part of the halo universe. for example the different creatures in the book "hunters in the dark", it gives an idea how vast the Halo universe is and I can only imagine how it will be possible to tie it the story with the mantle and protecting species, for example. Im sure well get to see gameplay as soon it is there!.Ive seen the original CE demos. The wild life wasnt as stressed as it was in infinite. Hell i thought it was a big game safari hunting game at first. First impression is everythingJames060394 wrote:That section appears to be taking notes from Bungie's original vision for Halo CE. Look at old Halo CE demo's and you will see there were plans for wildlife to be on the Halo rings much like you see in the trailer for Halo Infinite.

Yeah, I got those vibes too. Rewatched the old Mac trailer and I can see that 343 heavily drew inspiration from that.James060394 wrote:That section appears to be taking notes from Bungie's original vision for Halo CE.

Because it was time for a New Engine, Halo 1-5 including ODST and Reach all used the same engine just tweaked and overhauled. This engine looks spectacular, high resolution and fluid 60fps. If this is anything to go on, then Halo 6 will at least look amazing even if it doesn't play amazing.VenusRiese1043 wrote:If Halo 5 had a better Story, then the wait wouldn't be so painful. Also why did they need another engine? They could have used that time for the Game
