Some doubts over Halo not being on games lists Microsoft has put out.

Rob Semsey ‏@RobSemsey 7m

Xbox Wire today mentioned a few 2014 titles; Halo on Xbox One not listed due to official name of the next title not announced yet.

Rob Semsey ‏@RobSemsey 7m

Rest assured your next Halo journey WILL begin in 2014. #staycalm

Halo: New Beginnings, right? ;)

Hope it's decent and not just a stopgap game until Halo 5.

Maybe Halo Anniversary 2 will launch in 2014, and that's why they are not saying Halo 5 yet?

Had no doubt.



Hoping the in game trailers get me hyped.


Halo 5's announcement trailer is the first Halo trailer ever not to get me uber hyped. As someone who read all the books, beat each title countless times, etc, that is a problem.

Plus I need a reason to use my Xbox One other than Blu Ray/Netflix voice commands that work 30% of the time.

That app needs a serious update. The lip-syncing is terrible too.

could be, I probably shouldn't have put a 5 in the title. Can a mod remove it.

edit: wait they did call it Halo 5 at one point.

This new Halo is promised to run at 60fps, that's going to take some impressive engineering. Halo should be 30fps anyway, it's deviating even further away from the franchise. Some very strange decisions being made.

I am assuming they are debating on a name for the Halo 1-3 & ODST anniversary compilation that is due to hit STEAM sooner or later.

Fingers still crossed!

So I wonder why they haven't revealed the name yet.

Either they think revealing it to be HALO 5 is going to be a megaton announcement, or it's going to be a smaller game in scope since it's dev time is less than two years or so.

Did anyone in HaloGAF work out yet what that massive creature was in the trailer?

Either hyperbole, or you incorrectly set up your Kinect. Crank the vulme up on the TV during the calibration and you will see around a 90% success rate with your voice like many others.

edit: see below if talking about just Netflix :s

Will be interesting.

Will Microsoft depart from the poor route it took with Halo 4?

Or will they decide to go back to Halo's roots and make a compelling iteration?

heh, this had the opposite effect on me.

The wording makes me think it will be a minor release instead of Halo 5 proper. Or that the "journey" will begin with the TV show instead of the game.

I don't think they've dated the show and we haven't heard any news yet.

It is Halo 5. They've been working on this since before 4 was out the door. This is full sequel game.
