As pre-E3 hype ramps up, fans have reason to anticipate new sequels and entries from their favorite game series. Today brings a surprise announcement of a brand-new Halo game—the kind of news you might expect as an E3-keynote surprise.
There’s almost certainly a reason this news is coming today, as opposed to the middle of the E3 rush: it’s not a traditional Halo first-person shooter, and it’s not even coming to console. The new Halo: Fireteam Raven game is an arcade-exclusive light-gun shooter, coming “this summer” exclusively to Dave & Busters arcades in the United States and Canada. (Other arcade chains will get a crack at the massive arcade game “later this year.”)
