During the annual E3 games conference over the weekend, Microsoft announced that the latest game in the Halo franchise will be a launch title for the next Xbox console.

Halo: Infinite, the 16th game in the franchise, will be a launch title for the next Xbox console and they will be released together during the summer of 2020. 

343 Industries, a subsidiary of Xbox Games Studios, are behind the Halo series - a military sci-fi first-person shooter centred on an interstellar war. 

The code-name for the next Xbox is currently 'Project Scarlett' and Microsoft confirmed on Sunday that Halo: Infinite will make use of the console's upgraded tech - supposedly four times as powerful as the Xbox One X. 

The announcement was made at E3, the biggest annual video game event. You can take a closer look at the Halo Infinite advert below...
