    Um... lot of the articles I'm seeing are saying Infinite will NOT have paid lootboxes. Heck, the channel who uploaded that video uploaded another video talking about it.

    That’s what I said.

    It will have microtransactions of some kind, but it won’t have paid for loot boxes.

    If they do transactions in the style of H5 I don't think it's going to be that big a deal. In 5 they limited it to effect only one game mode and you had the option to grind a bit for the same reward. Plus there were boosters that made the latter option go by faster.

    I'm not saying I enjoy micro transactions but games are a business first and foremost and I don't see these highlight multiplayer titles dropping them anytime soon. Gamers would need to effectively shut down their support for any and all franchises that include them to get the point across and such an act is not obtainable. It sucks that companies do this but no one complained about DLC until it became over intrusive so micro transactions were bound to happen so these companies could make more money. At the end of the day that is what they want and need to pay their staff.
    I don't think they're going away but they'll be "Bungie-fied" if that makes any sense. That's what the Gen 3 Mjolnir armor project (yes that is a thing) is designed for, mix the old with the new for a good balance.

    Holiday 2020.

    Chief’s design looks like that of his CE days.

    A bit confused at the plot still.

    And, maybe it's just me, but the armor looks like the Halo 2/3 one.

    It’s got the sleekness of 2/3, and the sheer bulk and weight of 4/5. A perfect blend, imo.

    Also a bit of Legends which I like. I prefer more angular designs of Mk6 to the original which looked like a tank top and short shorts.

    From what we saw in the reveal trailer it's bee two years since Guardians and most likely the Created have been eliminating all opposition in their path.

    I also remember hearing there was a hiring for experienced MMO/RPG makers. Not sure if it's true or relevant to Infinite but I recall hearing that somewhere.

    This is what 343i Chief should've looked like all along.

    I am cautiously optimistic.
