Mysterious Halo 5 Countdown Clock Ends March 22*

Mar 20, 2015 by

The timer ends March 21 at 6PM, but what could it mean? The suspense is killing us!

[As it was pointed out by Roberto Rumbolo, the correct date for the end of the countdown is actually the 22nd. *checks again* Yes, the 22nd.]

It looks like something big related to 343 Industries’ Halo 5: Guardians is coming in less than 3 days. A mysterious countdown clock, ending on March 22, 6pm PST, has suddenly appeared on Tumblr, shedding less light than the game’s announcement trailer in 2013.


While little else is known regarding the conlcusion of the countdown, the viral marketing move has already proposed a trendy hashtag, #HUNTtheTRUTH, which was posted by Xbox senior public relations manager Rob Semsey (below). Besides that, and the constantly ticking timer, and a bullet with the word “TRAITOR” etched into it, little else can be gleaned from the cryptic page.

The game’s release date has yet to be announced, but then again, the same goes for a lot of information regarding the franchise’s next installment. Luckily, we only have to wait a handful of hours to find out. Stay tuned for the big announcement!
