Everyone in the Industry seems to have caught the E3 flu, and following Ubisoft’s announcements yesterday, Microsoft have announced a new installment in one of the most popular franchises, Halo. Just like it’s predecessor, Halo 5, will be developed by 343 Industries and will follow the ‘Reclaimer’ Story line from where we left off.
343 Industries’ General Manager Bonnie Ross Said on Xbox Wire;
“Halo 5: Guardians is a bigger effort than Halo 4…That applies to the content and scope of the game, as well as the technology in what’s now a brand new and more powerful engine. Certainly there are some core elements carried over from prior games, but we’ve invested a huge effort in retooling our tech to take full advantage of the Xbox One’s hardware and ecosystem to create worlds and experiences worthy of next-gen.”
“It’s a game that will hopefully demonstrate the talent, learnings and abilities of the 343 Industries team. A game that will incorporate the things we learned from Halo 4 about technology, aesthetics, performance and scale – and perhaps more importantly, understanding and embracing a community of gamers who love what lies at the heart of this game, and the limitless potential of the Halo universe.”
The game is set to be shown off during the E3 Xbox Conference in June, and is slated to hit the Xbox One platform in Fall 2015.
