Since the reveal of Halo Infinite at E3 2018, many fans came rushing to 343 Industries and Microsoft about the game’s development. One question is whether it was a sequel considering that prequels and spinoffs often removed numbers in favor of plain titles like Halo Wars and Halo Reach. However, 343 Industries has confirmed that Halo Infinite is Halo 6.

During a Mixer broadcast, it was confirmed by 343 Industries Jeff Easterling that Halo Infinite is indeed Halo 6.

Despite being a sequel this installment for Microsoft’s icon for the Xbox has an uphill battle to face. The previous game, Halo 5: Guardians, currently stands as the worse mainline Halo game due to its short campaign, repeating boss battles, and abandonment of the gameplay of the original games. Perhaps this one will fare better.

Halo Infinite is now in development for Xbox One and Windows 10.
