Microsoft has registered several new websites that point to a project called Halo Infinity.
Internet brand protection firm Mark Monitor (who services Microsoft and registered Microsoft.com) acquired HaloInfinity.net and HaloInfinityMultiplayer.com this week, in addition to the following slew of Infinity domain names: HaloInfinity.org, HaloInfinity.co.uk, HaloInfinity.mobi, HaloInfinity.de, HaloInfinityMultiplayer.net, HaloInfinityMultiplayer.org, HaloInfinityMultiplayer.co.uk, HaloInfinityMultiplayer.mobi and HaloInfinityMultiplayer.de.
While none of these domains reveal anything about what Halo Infinity might be, MarkMonitor also picked up MoreThanJustAMap.com. In the past, “Infinity” was the name of a PC-exclusive multiplayer map for Halo: Combat Evolved. Could this mean that Infinity is set to be released as a multiplayer map for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary?
It’s worth noting that, despite MarkMonitor’s clear connection to Microsoft, these domains haven’t been officially confirmed as Microsoft acquisitions. In addition, none of the sites point to anything yet, so Microsoft could simply be protecting its brand.
Microsoft hasn’t announced anything yet, but we’ve reached out and will update this story with any comment we receive.
Thanks to Fusible for spotting the domains.
