In no surprising news to Xbox fans, Halo 5: Guardians, the system’s biggest exclusive game to date has officially gone gold. Development has been officially completed and the game is ready to be sold now just before its October 27 release date.
A blog post from Halo Waypoint has revealed details of a multiplayer patch that is due on launch, featuring map data for Warzone and Arena modes. The patch will go live right as the game launches, so fans with a digital copy can have their console automatically install it and those with physical copies will be immediately prompted.
This is the culmination of an incredible three-year journey for our team. Together we set out to accomplish an ambitious vision and deliver a Halo game built from the ground up for the Xbox One. Now as we near the release of the game on October 27, we couldn’t be more excited to share the results with you, the fans.
