Someone has just registered web domains containing the words “Halo” and “Infinity” – and they didn’t register just one, but a ton of ’em! Halo fans might remember the word “Infinity” was the name of a popular PC-only map for the first Halo.

Notice that I said “someone” registered the domain names and not Microsoft directly? It’s because the domain names were registered by internet brand protection agency MarkMonitor – although it’s a moot argument, as Microsoft themselves is a client of the agency and it’s easy to put the two ideas together.

While it could be just Microsoft preventing “cyber-squatters” from sitting on its preferred domain names, a registration of this magnitude almost certainly means that the company has something big planned.
