Everybody was expecting 343 to announce a new Halo title, and they’ve done just that. Bonnie Ross, the general manager of 343 studios took to the Xbox News Wire to reveal the next instalment in the much loved sci-fi series.
Halo 5: Guardians will be released in late 2015. There is no gameplay footage or in-game shots but we do get an idea of where 343 want to take the franchise.
Making a “Halo” game that runs at 60 frames per second, on dedicated servers, with the scope, features and scale we’ve been dreaming of for more than a decade, is non-trivial. It’s a task that we, at 343 Industries, are taking very seriously to ensure we deliver the “Halo” game that fans deserve, and a game that is built from the ground up 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.
343 Studio’s Halo 4 was well received by the press and fans, so the franchise looks to be in good hands. With little else to go on at the moment we’ll have to wait for the bigger reveal at E3 in a few weeks.
