We don't get much in this trailer but it does feature the infamous Master Chief, a handful of soldiers, and a stampede of rhino-like animals all on a vibrant and bustling Halo.

Earlier today we mentioned that Microsoft's Xbox E3 briefing was used by CD Projekt Red to share its first Cyberpunk 2077 game trailer.

As Polygon reports, away from games Microsoft made two significant announcements.

Nearly three years after the release of Halo 5: Guardians, Microsoft unveiled an announcement trailer for a new Halo game called Halo Infinite at Xbox's E3 briefing on Sunday afternoon.

Microsoft has been working on game streaming technology for several years now.

It will take place after the events of Halo 5 but feel new to new players.

Although none of the Japanese developed games appear to be Xbox exclusive - the developers, it seems, not yet quite that confident - it's a hugely promising sign that Microsoft has been able to win them back. Also, the company's hardware team "is deep into architecting the next Xbox console", he said.

"People in certain regions where maybe a console isn't as appropriate, they don't have a television at home, they don't have space in their apartment to kind of set things up the way they want".

The new studios will all be housed beneath the Microsoft Studios brand alongside a new venture called The Initiative led by former Crystal Dynamics head of studio Darrell Gallagher. "We found innovative game designers, master storytellers and exceptional world builders".

"Halo Infinite" is the sixth installment in the popular first-person shooter franchise.

Obviously the major console makers, such as Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo, have to consider the future of gaming and how games are likely to be played.

Plus, the Seattle platform holder will acquire Undead Labs, the developer behind State of Decay 2, and Compulsion Games from Montreal, which is preparing to release We Happy Few on August 10.
