In a big reveal, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that it’s making the next-generation Halo game a 3D game, and not a “traditional” 2D one.
“Halo: The Last of Humanity” is the first entry in a new trilogy of Halo games, which will be released for Xbox, PlayStation, and Xbox One on November 11.
The game will feature a massive story that spans three “seasons,” the same concept as the previous Halo games: a post-war world in which humanity has gone through a major war and the humans are still trying to rebuild their fractured society.
In this first installment, the Covenant are back, and the only way to stop them is to make the humans work together.
As such, the game will have an all-new storyline, new weapons, and a whole lot more.
“We’re excited to bring this franchise to Xbox One and PS4 and PC with Halo: The Fall of Reach,” said Joe Staten, vice president of creative for 343 Industries.
“The Fall of Remnant, Halo: Reach, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo: Combat Evolved were all released in 3D and were well received by fans.
This new 3D storytelling, and how this new trilogy will be told, is what we’re really excited about with this project.”
The game is still in the development phase, but 343 is planning on releasing a demo on the Xbox Store and YouTube at some point in 2018.
We’ve reached out to Warner Bros., 343, and 343 Industries for comment on the Halo 3 3D reveal, and will update this article if we hear back.
Halo 3: ODST is a prequel to the original Halo 3 series.
The first game was released on November 4, 2008, and was followed by Halo: Anniversary, Halo 4, and Anniversary: Rise of Infinity.
343 Industries is still developing the new Halo 4 and Anniversary titles, which are also in development.
