Halo 5: Guardians Officially Announced, Coming Fall 2015

on May 16, 2014 6:05 AM

At long last the time has come, and Microsoft has revealed the official title of the next chapter of the Halo framchise, which will be Halo 5: Guardians. The game will be released in fall 2015 exclusively for Xbox One.

“Halo 5: Guardians” is a bigger effort than “Halo 4.”  That applies to the content and scope of the game, as well as the technology in what’s now a brand new and more powerful engine.  Certainly there are some core elements carried over from prior games, but we’ve invested a huge effort in retooling our tech to take full advantage of the Xbox One’s hardware and ecosystem to create worlds and experiences worthy of next-gen.

But that’s not all, as Microsoft teased that at E3 they will reveal their plans for the Halo franchise in 2014, which means that we’re probably getting the rumored Halo 2: Anniversary, even if no official announcement was made about that today.
