Welcome to the Halogaf Community thread. It's back baby! With Halo 5 slowly winding down and Halo: Infinite pretty far off in the distant future, I wanted to create a place for people to congregate and talk all things Halo. It's not like there is a shortage of material to discuss. From the Halo games, to the books and lore, to the TV and internet shows inspired by Halo, to fanfare and speculation about upcoming projects. Come in and stay a while. Let the Master Chief be your caffeine for the day, night, whatever. Note: this is kind of a work in progress, so I'll try to improve the thread OP as we move forward.

The Master Chief Collection is regaining momentum:
Maybe I'm crazy, but I feel that the Master Chief Collection is making a big comeback with 343 having fixed a lot of the prior issues that plagued the game for so long. On top of that, new features have been added, including the Match Composer feature (which you should definitely read about here ). Seriously, I've been playing nothing but HCE Slayer for the last month and don't plan on stopping any time soon.
Adding to The Master Chief Collection's popularity is that the Halo 5 Halo Championship Series has finished. Instead, there is an upcoming focus on grassroots tournaments for Halo 3 and other past Halo games. A lot of pros have come back to participate recently, which shows just how much classic halo is loved.

Halo Infinite news:
Bonnie Ross interviewed about Halo and diversity (nothing on Infinite)
Den of Geek update on Halo Infinite from Dec 5 (not much new here. they suggest Halo Infinite will be a current gen title, but I take it to mean cross-gen title and nothing more)
Master Chief will have a new look in Infinite (not really surprising)
Infinite to reward exploration and prominently feature natural landscapes (I like the sound of this, but do hope the game includes plenty of forerunner structures as well)
Reddit post that summarizes 343 Social Stream tidbits for Infinite

Halo Infinite Concept Art - You'll notice that it's the same image at the end of the Halo Infinite game engine reveal trailer from E3.
Anyhoo, that's all I've got right now. I just wanted to get this thread started as am I'm really excited to get people talking about Halo again. As mentioned, I'll try and add more info/resources over the coming days. Thank you mods for permission to bring Halogaf back. To the rest of you, enjoy!
