May 18, 2014 by

Halo 5: Guardians is coming in 2015, but what is in store for us this year?

343 Industries has officially unveiled the next chapter in the Halo saga, Halo 5: Guardians. The game will release Fall of 2015, delayed from its expected release this year, and will feature a brand new engine made from the ground up for Xbox One.

General manger at 343, Bonnie Ross, made the announcement saying  

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.” Ross also noted that the game will run a 60-FPS, have dedicated servers, and have the “scope, features and scale we’ve been dreaming of for more than a decade,

The last we saw of Halo was at Microsoft’s press conference during which they showed a trailer with an ambiguous title reading only “Halo“. The trailer also confirmed that something Halo related was coming this year, 2014. While we now have confirmation that Halo 5: Guardians won’t hit till next year, there is some speculation to be had.

The same day as Halo 5’s reveal, Engadget reported that “Halo: The Master Chief Collection” would release later this year and include remastered versions of Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4 and most likely aim to get longtime Halo players and newcomers to the series alike hyped for Master Chief’s first step into the next-generation.

So, what do you think. Is Halo 5: Guardians enough to entice you to buy an Xbox One? Do you think the Master Chief Collection is legit? Let us know in the comments!
