“We’re ecstatic to share the ‘Discover Hope’ video, which introduces a new character and heralds the return of our iconic [Master Chief] amidst dire and mysterious circumstances,” 343 Industries community director Brian Jarrard wrote in a blog post. “Like last year’s reveal trailer, this latest look at ‘Halo Infinite’ is powered by our new Slipspace Engine — an engine built from the ground up to realize our incredibly ambitious aspirations for the future of the franchise. Which, yes, also includes the long-awaited return of split-screen support to the series.”
He added that the new “Halo” title will be available on the entire Xbox One family of devices as well as “a wide range of PCs,” and will be included as part of the Xbox Game Pass subscription service for both consoles and PC.
