I'm going to guess they're interested in making something called Halo Infinity.

Microsoft didn’t stop there either.

Additional domain names that were registered include: HaloInfinity.org, HaloInfinity.co.uk, HaloInfinity.mobi, HaloInfinity.de, HaloInfinityMultiplayer.net, HaloInfinityMultiplayer.org, HaloInfinityMultiplayer.co.uk, HaloInfinityMultiplayer.mobi and HaloInfinityMultiplayer.de.

Infinity was a popular multiplayer level exclusive only to the PC for Halo: Combat Evolved, so it’s possible Microsoft will be offering it as a multiplayer map for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary.

Other domains that were registered the same week through MarkMonitor include SpartanOps.org (Whois), SpartanOps.net, and MorethanJustamap.com (Whois). These too, were privately registered.

... more than just a map? Hmm, what if they're doing Forge again, but releasing it as standalone before 4 launches.

Halo Infinity - Multiplayer only Halo game (XBLA) with one map (Infinity) and forge stuffs to make as many maps as you want.


I dunno. Just a guess going off of what very little we have.

By my estimates, that's still about an infinity less than infinity.

lol, yeah can't be a coincidence. BUT the main series will still be numbered.

This might be an extension of services or some cool new project, sorta like how Halo Waypoint is neither a game or movie, yet is an essential piece of service for Halo fans.

Don't companies do this all the time though? Like doesn't Blizzard own Warcraft4.com and worldofstarcraft.com? Just buy up domains of things that you aren't making but there is a possibility of happening.

They probably also own
Halo: Revelations
Halo: Reloaded
Halo: Chronicles
Halo: Unleashed
ect.

(But I really like the idea of it dealing with the "l∞p")

I sure hope there’s more to the story than just “protect our property”.

That.... sounds plausible. A subscription service for DLC, with crazy stat tracking? Sounds likely to me.

Probably part of the Halo 4 marketing campaign, I imagine they may have something interactive or viral in the works. Unless, of course, they pan to ditch the slow and glitchy halo.xbox.com and move to HaloInfinity? I doubt that, but a man can dream..
