Halo 5: Guardians

Microsoft announces Halo 5: Guardians, set for fall of 2015

5:00 AM on 05.16.2014 // Brett Makedonski

Also, a tease toward more Halo in 2014

Microsoft and 343 Industries have revealed that the next installment in Master Chief's continuing saga will be Halo 5: Guardians. It is scheduled to only come to Xbox One, and is slated for a fall of 2015 release window.

This will be the first new entry in the Halo series on Microsoft's new console, and as such, Halo 5: Guardians is being built from the ground up specifically for Xbox One. According to 343 Industries, a new engine was created for the game which gives the developers more power and capacity to work with. This will result in a title that runs at 60 frames per second and is "massive."

However, it doesn't sound like Halo 5: Guardians is all that Microsoft has in mind for Halo in the near future. Bonnie Ross, the 343 Industries general manager, noted that a journey "definitely begins in 2014 with a giant leap, rather than one small step." She added that more information will be revealed at the June 9 Xbox E3 press conference, and that 343's "confident that Halo fans will be pretty excited about the special plans in store."

I am relieved to know Creed is a Rocky spin-off and not a feature-length documentary about the band.

Been playing Gears of War 3's campaign on Xbox One. Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!

Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score? Is there a game in particular that was panned by critics that you nevertheless enjoyed? Or vice versa?

My cousin found out I slept with his girlfriend and is pissed. Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too.

I am pretty hyped for when I get a laptop because I'll be able to have a good enough connection to stream XbOne/soon PS4 games to it along with natively rendered Steam games. Hype!
