The next Halo game will require no less than a 130-inch, 4K arcade cabinet



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 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.")


Announced on Thursday evening as part of a new Inside Xbox video presentation, H:FR is a design collaboration between Raw Thrills (one of the only remaining arcade-game producers in the United States) and Play Mechanix, "in close collaboration with 343 Industries," according to Microsoft's announcement. The cabinet is admittedly one of the more beastly rigs we've heard of, even in the modern arcade era, as it requires no less than a 130", ultra-wide, 4K-resolution monitor and includes four seated-turret controllers.


You and three friends take on the titular role of Fireteam Raven, battling alongside Master Chief during the events of Halo: Combat Evolved, and your guns will include Needlers, Magnums, and Warthog-mounted turrets. Raw Thrills CEO and arcade design legend Eugene Jarvis says the game has taken "years" to develop—and we'll post impressions whenever we find a Dave & Busters with enough spare room to host this massive thing.
