I still believe Slipspace will be "Microsofts" engine. So Gears of War will be moved to it, Fable 4 and Halo. Like Frostbite for EA.

Hope it's nothing like Frostbite. I hear horror stories about it all the time.

I also have heard stories about that. Anthem, Army of Two 3 and Medal of Honor all struggled with it. The pipeline is apparently SHOCKING.

according to that article, unless youre working on battlefield or fifa, you arent getting internal support which explains how ME:A shipped so buggy and broken

Is it a "jump" if you're letting go of a piece of driftwood to get on board a luxury yacht?

I doubt GEARS would do that.... Gears is Unreal Engine

Yes but slipspace means MS doesn't have to pay epic

sounds like a major leap to get on board the yacht from the driftwood.

Someone spoke about this on a broadcast and mentioned that it was entirely new and still had multiple pieces from older iterations of Halos past, would this mean they might not be able to use it? (sorry i have no idea how engines work)

Source on this? If this is true we have been majorly bamboozled. Every Halo has been on a "new engine" which is just a modified version of the previous game's engine. So what was this five year gap all about?

I have no doubt it's built off the Halo 3/R/4/5 engine, but the fact that they're giving it a fancy new name means that they want it's name out there. That way they can add "slipspace" onto things. 

Such as "Gears 6: Powered by Slipspace A MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY"

In case anyone else was curious, these are the six gametypes that are being tested by the pros for a new tournament gametype pool:

  • Sanctuary Bomb
  • Zealot Bomb
  • Onslaught CTF
  • Simplex CTF
  • Simplex Slayer
  • Splash KotH

 

As far as I have gathered, there's no set goal on how many gametypes to add or remove but the potential gametypes for removal are Battle Canyon CTF, Battle Canyon Slayer, and Penance Slayer.
