Halo 5: Guardians Confirmed for 2015 Release

The Xbox has had a pretty big week already, what with dropping the Kinect and $100 from its price, but it seems Microsoft held back on some big news until Friday morning. The company is ringing in the weekend alongside the good folks from 343 industries. Speaking via Xbox Wire, Bonnie Ross, General Manager at 343 Industries, announced that Halo 5: Guardians will arrive on Xbox One in 2015.

Ross talked specifically about how past Halo titles have pushed the Xbox forward and showcased the console, and with the next title built from the ground up for Xbox One and set to run at 60 fps, we’re in for some pretty exciting stuff.

We got our first glimpse of the newest Halo game at E3 last year, when Microsoft showed off a brief trailer, but this is the first mention of a release date or title for the game. Ross said today that Halo 5 will be bigger than Halo 4 in terms of content and scope as well as technology.

Microsoft is promising a lot more information at E3 next month. The company’s Xbox briefing is schedule for June 9, so we’ll keep you posted! In the meantime, you can rewatch last year's trailer below:
