The official name for Halo 5 has finally been revealed as Halo 5: Guardians and will release in Fall of 2015.

This, once again proves the leak for NKTRNL and Shinobi60s was legit, so it certainly looks like we’ll be getting a “surprise” Halo 2: Anniversary announcement at E3 2014.

On the Xbox Wire, the General Manager of 343 industries Bonnie Ross had a few things to say about the installment in the Halo franchise.

Im happy to reveal that“Halo 5: Guardians,” the next installment in the legendary saga of the Master Chief, will launch on Xbox One in fall of 2015.  In the tradition of every “Halo” game since its debut in 2001, it is a massive and exciting project.

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.

It’s a game that will hopefully demonstrate the talent, learnings and abilities of the 343 Industries team. A game that will incorporate the things we learned from “Halo 4” about technology, aesthetics, performance and scale – and perhaps more importantly, understanding and embracing a community of gamers who love what lies at the heart of this game, and the limitless potential of the “Halo” universe.

  1. They’re announcing a release window fifteen months before that window opens? Either Microsoft are going to be putting a ridiculous amount of money into the advertising of Halo 5 to keep it interesting over that amount of time, or that move is some special kind of stupid. Feel free to announce a game that long before release, but don’t tell people it’s going to be that long…
    This, along with the Gears tease (even though it’s likely to be more than two years away at this point) makes me want to see what Sony’s going to have by way of a response. After all, it’s normally their tactic to announce their big hitters in the weeks leading up to E3. Competition is good!

    1. This comment is simply uninformed and ignorant on so many levels. You sound like a sonyfanboy so this isn’t surprising. Didn’t Destiny get teasers 2 years back… didn’t Watchdogs(900p) get announced years ago…. man… this is the trend, this is nothing new.. Once again a sonyfanboy scared of the Big H.

      1. Did you read the last sentence of my first paragraph, or just choose to ignore it to further your agenda? The games you mention, along with plenty of others, were announced a similar length of time before they were ready to release. The difference is that the publishers didn’t provide a release window on that day. They usually wait until the game is six-eight months away. Clown.

        And why would I be scared of Halo? I prefer Sony’s consoles, I freely admit that, but I don’t hate on Microsoft. Besides which, I’m not that fussed about FPS games in general. Resistance 2 was s**t. The other two games were better with their non-regenerative health systems, more inventive weapons and weapon wheels.
        But what does any of that matter, I was talking purely about the artwork and not the quality of the game itself. Clown.
        Try to accuse me of being a fanboy and put your own biases on clear display… Clown.

  2. Excellent 343 did a fantastic job with Halo4.
    I really hope this game goes more open world. 343 need to take a lot more risks with the Halo formula. Allowing more choices on how to tackle tasks/goals will make it feel more like the best moments in Halo1s campaign.
    I have a lot of faith in 343 to pull this off, they are easily one of the top Developers in games, so much talent there.

    Looking forward to Halo5:Guardians :)
