Flagship of Microsoft's Xbox console may see complete release on Xbox One
Two pieces of Halo news have emerged; one confirmed by Microsoft, the other a rumor. Microsoft Games' 343 Industries today officially announced the next in its Halo series of games, Halo 5: Guardians. Designed for the Xbox One, the new title continues the second trilogy of Halo titles, started by Bungie in 2001 with Halo: Combat Evolved. Rumored is the HD re-release of previous Halo titles, encapsulating Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4.
The rumor, reported by Engadget, is similar to one in which Master Chief voice actor Steve Downes suggested to GameZone earlier this year that there would be a Halo 2 re-release in 2014 for the Xbox One, calling it an "anniversary edition."
The release window for Halo 5 is the holiday season of 2015, with an unknown release date for the remastered Halo Master Chief Collection.
