Microsoft Trademarks Halo: The Endless for Video Game Software

Isn’t Halo: The Endless Just a Synonym for Halo Infinite?

Happy Halo Week everyone! Halo Infinite is out and its campaign and multiplayer is able to be enjoyed by all (who don’t care about the online progression). Though the launch has been successful and 343 Industries has earned a break, Microsoft is not done with Halo. They have just filed a trademark for Halo: The Endless.

Endless and Infinite sound interchangeable, which may be exactly the point. Though we have no idea what Halo: The Endless could be, the trademark filing says that it is “video game software”, specifically for home computers and consoles.

These clues may lead one to believe that Halo: Endless might either be an upcoming DLC or new game mode. Halo is no stranger to introducing new game modes, like Halo 5 did with Warzone or Halo 4 with Spartan Ops.

What Halo has not yet done is add campaign DLC. Each game is pretty self-contained with clear endings, so story DLC has never really been plausible. However, the open-world aspect of Halo Infinite changes things a bit. If you have played the campaign, you will know that the playable map is only one portion of Zeta Halo’s surface, so visiting other areas could be in the cards.

Of course, this is all just speculation. The only facts are that Microsoft filed a trademark for Halo: The Endless earlier this month and that it is game software. Halo Infinite is brand new in its release cycle, so anything is possible. Halo Infinite is available now for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S and on Game Pass. Be sure to also check out our review.
