343 Industries has pulled the curtain back and revealed that the next Halo game will be called Halo 5: Guardians and will release in the Fall of next year.
Bonnie Ross, who is the general manager of 343 Industries, made the announcement in a blog post on xbox.com. Ross said the following:
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.”
Much more information is planned to be revealed at this year’s E3.
