    Halo 5 for XBONE



    [Continued from here.]

    Halo 5 Confirmed to Arrive on Xbox One in 2014

    Given the fact that the game has yet to receive an official name, the next Halo title has been skipped by the online gaming press. Well, it appears that Halo Senior PR Manager Rob Semsey took it to Twitter to explain that the reason the title did not appear on some lists for upcoming 2014 games was the fact that the official name of the game had not been announced yet.

    Semsey also confirms in another tweet that Halo 5, or whatever the name, will be launched on Xbox One sometime this year: “Rest assured your next Halo journey WILL begin in 2014.”

    No details on the release timeframe have been unveiled though, so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.

    Halo TV Series Won't Be Filler, Will Get More People into the Franchise

    The Halo franchise has seen the release of many games over the years but also comic book or even novels, not to mention the special live action mini-series Halo: Forward Unto Dawn, which paved the way for 2012's Halo 4 game. The series is set to see the release of a new Halo game for the Xbox One this year, but also a TV series made in partnership with Steven Spielberg.

    According to Microsoft's Phil Spencer, who talked with OXM, the new show will be a proper Halo experience, not just something designed to fill the gap between games.

    "I think thereís a story in the Halo games thatís noteworthy, and that we can introduce more people to the IP by putting the franchise, stories, and characters in more accessible mediums than a first person shooter. Thatís a good thing for Halo, a good thing for the platform, and a good thing for the IP owners."

    "I definitely donít think of it as filler. Halo, you could argue, is the most important entertainment IP that Microsoft owns. I canít use the word filler anywhere near Halo, it just wonít work. If weíre going to do a television series with Halo, weíre going to do it the right way, and weíre going to do it because we think it really matters."

    Spencer then compared Microsoft's efforts with the Halo series with The Walking Dead franchise, which first started off as comic books but then evolved into a TV show and got a successful video game adaptation.

    "Iím a big Walking Dead fan," Spencer admitted. "Iíve read the comics and graphic novels; the IP has grown and became more accessible as it hit TV, then went to videogames where it did incredibly well, and I think that strategy of growing and deepening what the franchise and IP is about is a good strategy for an IP holder."

    As of yet, it's unclear when the new Halo TV series will debut.
    Eh, as long as it shows up on Netflix, I'm down.

    New Halo Game with Online Features Coming to Xbox 360 Ė Report

    343 Industries is working on quite a few projects nowadays, with one of the biggest being the already-confirmed Halo 5 for the Xbox One next-gen platform. At the same time, other projects are in development and, according to a new job listing, one of them involves a triple-A Halo game with online features that might appear on the Xbox 360. The listing, found by DualShockers, is looking for an Online Engineer that has experience with current-gen platforms and has worked on online services, possibly hinting at microtransactions for the new game.

    Unfortunately, 343 Industries hasn't confirmed anything about the new game.
    Huz-wuh...??

    Halo 5 for 360? Man, I'm prayin' it's true!

    The rumor has been going around for more than a few weeks now.

    Halo 2 Anniversary for Xbox One Not Ruled Out by Microsoft

    Quote Originally Posted by Softpedia.com

A variety of upcoming Microsoft titles and plans were leaked last week, including the possibility of a Halo 2 Anniversary remake for the Xbox One console.

    While talking on Twitter with a fan who asked about such a title, Microsoft's Phil Spencer revealed that he never gets tired of answering questions about the company's plans but that he "can't always answer as we need news at events."

    He also ended the tweet saying that, "Halo 2 is a good game."

    As such, it's pretty obvious that a Halo 2 Anniversary remake is coming in the near future, especially since this year marks the 10-year anniversary of Halo 2's original launch.

    Halo 5: Guardians Continues the Story of Halo 4, Focuses on Master Chief's Role


    Halo 5: Guardians has just received some more details about its story, with developer 343 Industries revealing that it will focus more on Master Chief's train of thought and his role in the UNSC and the current state of the franchise's universe.

    Halo 4 kicked off a brand new stage of Master Chief's journey and 343 Industries revealed, at that time, that it was heralding the start of a new trilogy for the popular character. Last week, the studio and publisher Microsoft presented the first details about Halo 5: Guardians, the next stage in the new trilogy, which is set to appear for the Xbox One in fall of 2015. The studio talked a bit more about the story with The Guardian, confirming through the voice of creative director Frank O'Connor that it will pick up from where Halo 4 left off, placing a bigger emphasis on the internal struggle of Master Chief.

    "This is a continuation of the story from Halo 4," O'Connor revealed. "When we left him in Halo 4, he's in a really challenging position. He's questioning many things he once firmly believed were true. He's lost his best friend, he's questioning his past and his purpose, he's question who he is fighting for."

    This midway point in the new trilogy will offer a new perspective for Master Chief, and the studio confirms that it will treat his past while setting up for the future Halo 6, which will conclude the saga.

    "For us this is a really interesting point. For the first time he's questioning everything he's done for the UNSC in the past. Just as with past titles, we're being really open about the fact that we want to tell this story over more than one game – this is about Master Chief's journey: it's about his past and his future."

    O'Connor also shined a spotlight into the current state of the protagonist and mentioned that the things he went through in past games have taken a toll on the hero.

    "If you look at Halo 1, 2 and 3 and know the origin story and know the fiction well, Master Chief is our hero, he is you, and he is saving humanity... but it’s been at a huge cost to his life and there are things going on – you saw them in 4 – that make him question who is calling the shots. Is he doing the right thing? That's very interesting for us to explore."

    Halo 5: Guardians launches next fall for the Xbox One. It will be accompanied by the TV series that's being developed by Steven Spielberg.
    Sounds like the plot to Captain America: TWS... which I greatly enjoyed so bring on the shallow plagiarism!!

    Also Halo 5: Guardians Runs at 60fps and Has Dedicated Multiplayer Servers. Should cut down on the cheating... "should".

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection Confirmed for November 11 on Xbox One

    Microsoft has made a big announcement during the E3 2014 press conference, confirming that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will debut on Xbox One and that it contains Halo 1, 2, 3, and 4, not to mention access into the Halo 5: Guardians beta that will take place this winter holiday season.

    All four games will run beautifully on the Xbox One but Halo 2 has received the Anniversary treatment, allowing players to shift from the old to the new visuals. It also has the multiplayer mode that was included in the original release 10 years ago, complete with all of its 100 maps. All games will run at 1080p resolution and 60fps on dedicated servers, meaning its multiplayer will perform as smooth as possible. The collection also includes access to Halo Nightfall, the digital project made by Ridley Scott.

    Last but not least, this fall Halo: The Master Chief Collection owners will be able to join the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta. It will feature the Arena mode running at 60fps on dedicated servers so expect some great things. Expect to hear much more in the near future about Halo: The Master Chief Collection, as Microsoft is sure to hype it up as we get closer to the November launch.
