Of course, every single one of these titles, along with the other 17 are listed at the Xbox Blog… All 30 of the games will be released for the Xbox One. However, only a few will be released for the PC.
Either way, whatever Microsoft has in store for GDC, Halo Infinite appears to be the centerpiece. I do hope this time round that Halo is done right… It is said that the developers are going ‘back to the roots of Halo’ but, this was said about Halo 5 and that was appalling.
Let us know what you think about Halo Infinite, has Halo had its day or will/can it ever make a come back? Do be sure to share this information on social media… Are there any games from the list that strike your interest?
