The hour approaches...forces occupy the Ring. Within hours, it will be under our control. Humanity will burn. Their brazen defiance will be all but a memory. No more prophets, no more lies! We stand together, brothers to the end. We are his will, we are his legacy, we are the Banished.
In less than 24 hours, this random Halo tweet has harvested over 2.3 million views and counting. In addition, over 91K Twitter users have liked the tease and the tweet has been retweeted over 26.5k times. That’s quite the momentum for a tweet that doesn’t even confirm that it’s related to Halo Infinite and shows the excitement within the community for the next Halo.
As confirmed last month, Halo Infinite will be present during Microsoft’s Xbox Series X first-party showcase next month.
“You may have seen people talking about this lightly before, but we're extremely excited to confirm that Halo Infinite will be one of many first-party titles included in the Xbox 20/20 event in July”, Halo developer 343 Industries wrote on the Halo Waypoint blog last month.
