Halo 5: Guardians Announced, Hitting Fall 2015

halo 5 reveal

In what is probably the least exciting Halo game announcement of all time, Bonnie Ross, General Manager of 343 Industries, took over the Xbox Wire to reveal Halo 5: Guardians which will be coming to the Xbox One in the Fall of 2015.

Continuing the story of Master Chief from where we left him in Halo 4, Halo 5: Guardians is being built with a completely new engine and will deliver a 60 frame-per-second performance, a first for the series. A Halo TV series is also teased to be released in a similar time-frame to Halo 5: Guardians.

The Spartan on the top of the box art will apparently be a new character according to series Executive Producer Josh Holmes on Twitter.

Microsoft is certainly getting a lot out of the way for E3. Typically a Halo reveal is a big to-do and Bonnie Ross promises that more will be revealed at E3 this year, but I can’t help but feel a little deflated that a game series that once commanded attention is now relegated to blog post unveilings.

  1. I’m kind of hoping 343 will have something good to show for this at E3, either a gameplay trailer or a little slice on the show floor. Either way, kind of upsetting that this was a blah reveal, considering Halo is still a juggernaut for Microsoft. Excited about the new engine, not so much about the new TV series.

  2. Hey if Halo’s TV series in on par with the pre-Master Chief segments of Forward Unto Dawn, I’m on board.

    Just had this thought, is this new Spartan an attempt to create a TV/movie friendly character as opposed to trying to shoe-horn in the Chief?

  3. I find myself agreeing that the announcement coming from a blog post is a little underwhelming. It would have been nice to end their E3 presentation with it.

    Perhaps the reason why they did it now rather than at E3 is because they have this other Halo related thing for this year and they want to focus on that?
