Halo Infinite launches on Xbox One, PC and Xbox Scarlett Holiday 2020

Halo Infinite launches on Xbox One, PC and Xbox Scarlett Holiday 2020

Kicking off E3 2019 with its pre-conference event, Microsoft on Sunday announced the launch of the anticipated Xbox Game Pass Ultimate that brings access to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass games. Project Scarlett will hit stores in time for the 2020 holiday season alongside the next Halo game.

For hardware, Project Scarlett will use a custom CPU designed by AMD featuring Zen-2 architecture. Even the current generation of consoles continue to fall victim to load screens and Scarlett, like Sony's next console, will leverage the capabilities of a Solid State Drive, or SSD.

Alongside Project Scarlett Microsoft announced some details about the availability for its cloud gaming service, xCloud. xCloud should allow you to play all your Xbox games via the cloud and from either Microsoft's servers, or by using your Xbox One as a personal server.

Microsoft is facing new competition in gaming as technology companies move in with Internet-based streaming services.

Microsoft had a video that talked quite a bit about all this that aired during their E3 2019 conference, which you can check out for yourself below.

With Microsoft already set to preview its xCloud game streaming service that will stream games to PCs, consoles, and mobile devices, the new subscription bundle is making it a deal too good to pass up on. Halo's new Halo Infinite title will be a launch title for the new console.




If both consoles do end up being so similar, customers will be faced with choosing the platform that offers the best games.

The fact that Microsoft bought Double Fine - one of my favorite game developers - would have seriously annoyed me if they were made to make Xbox-only games. As per another Eurogamer report, a new Fable game is in the works, and Forza Horizon developer Playground Games - which Microsoft also snapped up past year - is reportedly on-hand to make it.

That all adds up to a stated performance increase of more than 40x over current-gen offerings.

The latest version of Microsoft's popular "Halo" videogame will be launched along with the new console.

We're ecstatic to share the "Discover Hope" video which introduces a new character and heralds the return of our iconic hero amidst dire and mysterious circumstances.
