Current Halo trilogy is now a saga, says Microsoft


11:30 AM on 06.21.2013



The new Halo installment teased during Microsoft's E3 2013 press conference is no longer the second game in the Reclaimer trilogy. "While we originally said trilogy, we've actually expanded this to more of a saga, so we don't want to limit the Reclaimer story within a trilogy," a Microsoft rep confirmed to GameSpot. In other words, there's much more Halo where that came from.

This upcoming Xbox One title is indeed the real deal -- not some sort of spinoff -- even if it wasn't explicitly announced as Halo 5. "It is the next Halo game that we are working on," said Microsoft Game Studios VP Phil Spencer, who called this "a legitimate version of Halo."

That was certainly an unexpected teaser trailer, but I don't see the new game departing too far from the series norm. Depending on the time frame, this news isn't inherently bad. Microsoft, let's not pump out follow-ups year after year, please.

The real life version of the Halo sword kind of sucks

Master arms maker Man at Arms is back, this time taking on the Halo Elite energy sword. The concept looks cool in the game, but it kind of sucks in real life as it's not really practical. Look at how floppy it is! It will still cut a fool, you just got to wiggle it around a little to really get in deep. It'll look cool mounted on a wall or something at least. more
