Well, it seems like Halo fans can finally stop speculating about the next chapter of Halo.
Bonnie Ross, of 343 Industries officially made the announcement on a blog post in which she unveiled the future of our beloved Halo. Ross didn’t go into much detail with what the next Halo has planned but, she did state that this game it is “a bigger effort that Halo 4″. She goes on to say ” 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.”
The game will be running at 60 fps and will also be running on a new engine. 343 Industries gave us a little taste of what’s to come at E3 2013 and we will be seeing more at E3 2014. Ross says “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.”
If the news of Halo 5: Guardians didn’t make you excited enough, Ross also commented on the Halo TV series that is projected to launch in 2015. She says ” 2015 won’t simply be the year of Halo 5: Guardians, it will also be a year that offers us a unique opportunity. The opportunity to invite old friends and new audiences into that universe through the “Halo” television series, launched as a unique collaboration with Steven Spielberg and some of the finest creative minds in the business”.
