Halo (5) on Xbox One, Rumors and Facts

The upcoming Halo game for the Xbox One has got some facts and rumors under it’s belt. I am going to discuss what is possible, what is fact, what is pure speculation, and what is wrong. Now let us get into it.

Halo on Xbox ONE’s Title: Some people, well most people, think this game is Halo 5. 343i and Microsoft have both stated that this title is not Halo 5. After some going back and forth within the press, I would have to believe them at their original comments and say it is a game that takes place Halo 4 but not before the Halo 5 story arc. I have found a rumor suggesting that the new Halo game will Reclaimer which fits the Reclaimer Saga ordeal.

Halo “Reclaimer” Story: We do not know really anything about the story but I have my educated theory’s. First off the game will either take place between Halo 4’s ending and sometime between Spartan Ops or after it. Or it could take place right after Halo 4 like a week or so which is doubtful but possible in my mind. Now what is Master Chief doing on whatever world or structure he is on? I think this part could either take place within the first 3 hours or in the middle of the game.

What the giant machine is could be three things, The Didact’s war sphinx which I think is unlikely due to leaked concept art of it looking smaller and different. It could be Medicant Bias a ancient forerunner AI who is in working in the background events of Halo 2 and 3, also he may be responsible for the events of Halo 4. Another option is the least likely of it not being in the game at all and possibly being  just promotional or apart of the TV show.

The story will most likely involve heavily into Master Chief’s progression as a human being which we saw briefly touched upon in Halo 3 and more touched on in Halo 4. You could say this game is like the epilogue to Halo 4 and the intro to Halo 5 in a sorts. More like a continuation of the Halo Reclaimer Saga.

Halo Mutiplayer, 60 FPS, Dedicated Servers: Halo will finally be a crisp 60 FPS with online dedicated servers. This will be a big change for the Halo series. The fact they are considering making Halo multiplayer more cinematic and bigger. For example rumors of 32 vs 32 or more with something similar to Battlefields commander mode in BF4. Of course traditional game types will remain with the return of firefight and most likely and redefined and improved Spartan Ops mode. Possibly even a campaign for your multiplayer character similar to Halo Reach.

This is all I can talk about right now concerning Halo on Xbox One “5” “Reclaimer” But in our dedicated Halo sections we will keep you up to date, see you star-side.

343 Industries Teases Unknown “Projects”; Are They Helping Develop Cortana?

343 Industries took to their Halo Waypoint blog recently to let the world know that they are facing “both exciting and daunting” work on not only Halo for Xbox ONE and the Halo TV Show being directed by Steven Spielberg but also more unknown “projects” which have yet to be announced in nature. They also congratulated the commemoration of Halo 4 which occurred between the sheets for some of the crew at 343. Could this new tease have something to do with the rumor that Cortana will be the voice of the Xbox ONE and Windows Phone 8 to compete with iPhone’s Siri? Only time will tell. Check out some hilarious and insightful talk from 343 below.

“Last month, Halo 4 turned nine months old. I know this because our studio recently experienced a sizeable baby boom. While I celebrated the launch of the game by hitting the virtual battlefields, several coworkers marked the occasion in a different, yet equally exciting way. Whether we’re talking about my merrymaking or theirs, it’s safe to say numerous bases were penetrated. And successfully, at that.

Game development is a curious thing. You start with an idea, frolic in a dream pasture where anything is possible, adjust accordingly until you’re back in reality, and then work your ass off building, developing and polishing what you hope will eventually become an enjoyable experience. Seeing Halo 4 transform from a small stake in the ground, into what we shipped, and into what it is now has been a fascinating and valuable learning experience, both for me personally, and the studio as a whole.”

Head to the 343 Industries Halo Waypoint posts for info on the upcoming Halo 4 update.

Halo 5 Officially Confirmed

 

Microsoft has officially stated that the new Halo game is Halo 5. It is not a surprise to anyone at all. More than likely they were just considering other title ideas but found this easier. There also is a trailer that states Halo 5 at the end but I can’t find it, will edit it in once I find it.

Brand New ‘Halo on Xbox ONE’ Story Details Posted by Microsoft

On the Windows Phone version of the Microsoft Store a brand new description has been posted for Halo on Xbox ONE set to release for the next-generation gaming platform in 2014. At this time it appears to not be readable on desktop machines, but it may work on iOS / Android smartphones as it’s found on the Mobile Microsoft Store’s listing of the game. For those wondering, this game is probably not going to be called Halo 5 and is most likely just going to be called Halo. For now, we’re leaving our Halo 5 section called Halo 5 simply for search-ability on the internet. Here’s what the new story details are from Microsoft:

Halo for Xbox One takes the now legendary saga to new heights and is one of the most anticipated games for the new console.  “In possession of a mysterious data chip, Petty Officer John-117, aka Master Chief, confronts a new battery of challenges and tests in a Herculean effort to stay alive in a galaxy where sentient life is mercilessly hunted,” a description reads.  “Pre-order the next chapter in the wildly popular Halo series designed exclusively for Xbox One.”

RTX 2013: Halo Xbox One News, Halo 3 PC Announcement or Halo 2 Anniversary Reveal?

RTX or Rooster Teeth Expo starts on July 5th, but the Halo 343 Industries Panel doesn’t start till July 6th where we will “Get an exclusive first look at 343’s next Halo announcement!”. This could mean several things, could we be getting information about 343 Industries next installment in the Halo franchise? Could the heavily rumored Halo 3 PC finally be released as all indications point to Certain Affinity to be developing it?

Or could we be getting a Halo 2 Anniversary for the XBOX One? My bet is on a Halo 3 PC announcement as there is a lot information that proves Halo 3 for PC on Steam exists. Back in February a NeoGaf user found a whole range of games that were supposedly coming to Steam in the future, one of those was Halo 3. A few months later, AMD released one of their drivers for their GPU’s and Halo 3 popped up again. There is even a Halo 3 Steam group on the Steam community page. Another source from 4chan gives a compelling case why Halo 3 will arrive on PC in the future, they quote on quote state:

  • “The servers for Halo 2 Windows Vista are being replaced
  • Game for Windows Live will be removed from Halo 2 for Windows Vista.
  • Halo 2 will drop Windows Vista and appear on iOS.
  • The Halo trilogy (Halo: Combat Evolved, a fixed version of Halo 2, and Halo 3) will be available on Steam”

Certain Affinity, a third party developer for 343 Industries was asked on Twitter, “If they were working on Halo 3 for PC”, their response was, “We plead the 5th ;)”. Obviously referring to the 5th Amendment but curiously not giving a definitive no and using a wink emoticon just to make us that much more curiously.

And lastly there is some leaked Halo 3 PC footage that was uploaded on June 26th. This video could easily be fake but the timing of the mouse and keyboard seem to indicate he is using a Mouse/KB. Interesting enough though, he showed a new map called Forge Globe in the Map menu. We’ll have to wait and see on July 6th at RTX to find out what 343 Industries/Certain Affinity are planning.

Halo on Xbox ONE – Leaked Footage Explained

The following footage has been leaked from a vetted source as a cut-scene from Halo on Xbox ONE featuring the forerunner symbol at the end. Cortana is also featured in the footage. Be sure to remember this game is scheduled for 2014 on Microsoft’s next-generation game console Xbox ONE and is titled “Halo” not “Halo 5” as it is sometimes referred to by developer 343 Industries and their massive Halo fan-base.

What does it all mean?

That Cortana is still alive or revived and that this scene might be after what ever causes Master Chief to lose his chest piece and get the huge scratch on his helm. It looks like some type of dark forerunner room with obvious forerunner colors, in blue and red plus the fact Cortana is blue also symbolizes this.

Fable IV and De3d Rising 3 Among New Leaked Microsoft XO (Xbox ONE) Games

Above we have a legit leaked image of XO exclusive titles. We already know that Forza 5 is real and is coming and that is the real the logo. Also we can see notable games that we know are famed series such as Fable IV a actual exclusive to the Fable series. Quantum Break is made by Remedy the studio behind Alan Wake.

Also a Halo game titled something assault or Spartan Assault  which could be a RTS sequel to Halo Wars or a spin off. We also see the Halo 5 logo which we have known about the game since E3 2011. We see Rare’s historic game in Banjo Kazooie a new title called Banjo Kazooie Gruntyland or Countryland.

The game right next to Fable IV could be Dead Rising 3 or something else but it would make sense if they did pick it up since Dead Rising one was only on the 360. The game next Quantum Break could be a new Shank game, or a new Killer Instinct  but other than that I have no idea. We know they said there will be 15 exclusive games from the first of launch coming but there could be easily more than that announced and new multiplatform games they could show more for.
