Rumor: Halo is Switching to Unreal Ungine - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 03 October 2022 / 2,257 Views
Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries is reportedly looking to switch from its own Slipspace Engine to Unreal Engine, according to Jeremy Penter on Twitter who spoke with multiple sources.
"I can only confirm that many sources are saying this and very clear that it's already been decided and Halo is for sure switching to Unreal," said Penter over the weekend.
This should be treated as a rumor, however, if it turns out to be true it isn't known what this decision means for Halo Infinite. The game was originally going to be supported by 343 for a decade.
Halo Infinite has had its own issues has it was originally delayed by a year before launching in December 2021. However, there have been many features missing from the game that will finally launch next month, including Campaign Network Co-op and Forge. Split-Screen Co-op was recently cancelled.

I feel like it's time for other switches behind the scenes including people leaving and their past problems.
Unreal is a great choice. https://t.co/8KxMqREWIk
