With so many rumors being thrown about by what will be the 6th installment of the Halo franchise it’s not been discovered that 343 Industries which is the studio behind the newest incarnation of the game is hiring for a 4k game that will feature 60 frames per second. This all but verifies that you will need to upgrade your Xbox One to one of the versions of the Xbox One X that will be available here soon if you want to be able to play the newest Halo at it’s prime settings. As for when we will get an official announcement for Halo 6, that remains to be seen. However, it seems likely that Microsoft will finally pull the curtain back on the long-awaited game during its E3 2018 press conference this coming June. Once Halo 6 is officially announced, the next thing fans will have to wait for is a release date. 343 has suggested that Halo 6 won’t release in 2018, and if that’s true, then a 2019 release seems likely. However, if Microsoft is able to launch Halo 6 this holiday season, it will have a huge exclusive to help sell Xbox One X systems.
In the meantime, it will be interesting to see if any rumors surrounding Halo 6 turn out to be true. One rumor making the rounds suggests that Halo 6 will have a battle royale mode as a way to compete with the likes of games like Fortnite and PUBG. Another rumor, based on a job listing, teased that Halo 6 will have virtual reality features of some kind. Since the Xbox One currently doesn’t support virtual reality, this rumor may hint at a VR announcement coming at E3 as well. Whatever form Halo 6 takes, it’s clear that 343 is aiming for it to have as impressive of graphics as possible. It will be exciting to see the game in action whenever Microsoft is ready to properly reveal it to the world.
