Halo 5: Guardians Announced

May 16, 2014

Microsoft has just announced Halo 5: Guardians and has set a release window of Fall 2015 for the flagship title, exclusive to Xbox One.

Last year at E3, Microsoft teased fans with a mysterious CG Trailer that hinted at bigger things to come for the Halo series. Since then, Microsoft and 343i have been pretty quiet about it, until now.

General Manager of 343i, Bonnie Ross, took to their blog post to share a few details. "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."

This is exciting news for Xbox fans and gamers alike. E3 is still 3 weeks away and Microsoft has already revealed a Kinect-less $399 model and have previewed the fantastic looking exclusive, Sunset Overdrive. And now, they drop Halo 5 announcement on us. Microsoft must have some HUGE announcements for E3 2014...Like, bigger than Halo news. They clearly feel really confident in what they have to show fans this year.

 

Bonnie Ross goes on to say, "Many fans noted that I was very deliberate with my phrasing on stage at E3 last year. I spoke about a 'journey,' rather than a destination – and that journey definitely begins in 2014 with a giant leap, rather than one small step. We’ll give you much more information about our plans for this year at the Xbox E3 2014 Media Briefing on June 9, and we’re confident that Halo fans will be pretty excited [about] the special plans we have in store."

Halo 4 was released with great reviews, can Halo 5 live up to expectations? Hopefully we see more of Halo 5 at E3!
