Halo Infinite teaser confirms the return of The Banished

By Sean Carey,
The official Halo Twitter account has posted a short teaser for the upcoming Halo Infinite. An intercepted audio transmission teases The Banished as an enemy faction in the game.


The Banished are a mercenary group that rebelled and split off from the main Covenant Empire and last featured in Halo Wars 2. The splinter group hasn't been seen in a mainline Halo game so far. In the audio message, we hear The Banished saying, "Forces occupy the ring. Within hours, it will be under our control. Humanity will burn, their brazen defiance will be all but a memory."

More on Halo: Infinite is expected to be announced during July's Xbox 20/20 event, where Microsoft will be showcasing its first-party offerings.
