Halo5Guardians 16 May

Microsoft has announced Halo 5: Guardians, the first in the franchise to be “built from the ground up for Xbox One,” will launch in fall 2015.

“In the past, Halo games have pushed the Xbox forward, showcasing the console and its ecosystem in entertaining and innovative ways,” 343 Industries GM Bonnie Ross said, in part. “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.”

Ross also noted that while the game won’t be coming out until next year, the “journey” to Halo 5 “definitely begins in 2014, with a giant leap, rather than one small step.” 343 will announce that leap at E3 next month, Ross said.

The Steven Spielberg-produced Halo live-action series is also planned for a release in fall 2015.
