Halo 5 Could Finally Be Confirmed By A New Version Of The E3 Trailer

Halo 5, one of the shortest announcements from this year’s Microsoft E3 show, could finally be confirmed as the newest Halo game. This all comes courtesy of a new version of the E3 trailer, with the news straight from Axis Animation (the animation company responsible for the reveal trailer).

The original E3 trailer only showed a mysterious game called ‘Halo’. This new version, posted on the Axis Animation official Facebook page, shows the logo with that long-awaited number: Halo 5. By no admission is this a 100% confirmation however, as the Halo 5 could simply be a placeholder logo until something better or something completely different is created.

The next Halo game, whether it truly is Halo 5 or just another Halo game, is currently scheduled for a 2014 release, and the title is set to be enhanced by cloud computing and making use of dedicated servers. It’s also been promised that the next generation of the Halo experience will run at a “blistering 60 frames per second”. A little bit of the new Halo story could also have been revealed not that long ago on the Microsoft store.

A listing for the new Halo game appeared on the Microsoft store with the release date of 12/31/2014 (more than likely a placeholder, otherwise that would be an epic end-of-year-present!) and the following under the headline of “Master Chief continues his hero’s quest”:

Halo for Xbox One takes the now legendary saga to new heights and is one of the more anticipated games for the new console. In possession of a mysterious data chip, Petty Officer John-177, aka Master Chief, confronts a new battery of challenges and tests in a Herculean effort to stay alive in a galaxy where sentient life is mercilessly hunted.

Very ambiguous! The listing was has since been very quickly removed. So: Halo 5 could be well and truly on the way! What are you looking forward to with the Master Chief’s newest adventures? More action-packed-explosive-space-adventures with aliens on top, or something completely new to the franchise? I don’t know about you guys, but you can’t believe the number of arguments I’ve had whether this is Halo 5 or a completely independent game, so if it does turn out to be right then I get to say ‘I told you so’ an awful lot.
