Don't worry, Halo for Xbox One is still on track for 2014

Microsoft confirms new project left off recent list of 2014 titles because its official name has not been announced yet, not because it was delayed.

by

The reason Microsoft did not include the new Halo game for Xbox One in its list of titles coming to the platform this year is because the game's title has not been announced, Microsoft senior PR manager Rob Semsey said on Twitter today.

"Rest assured your next Halo journey WILL begin in 2014," Semsey said, with the hashtag #staycalm. "I read the [popular games forum NeoGAF] religiously," he added. "Didn't want folks to freak out about Halo's omission and GAF news makes the rounds right quick."

A Facebook post from Xbox Australia last week said the new Halo game for Xbox One would be called "Halo 5." However, Microsoft said this post was made in error. The game's final name remains a mystery.

Microsoft has released only one trailer for the next Halo game, showing off Master Chief in the desert. The all-new Halo game will be the second Halo title available on Xbox One, following 2013's Halo: Spartan Assault.

No way. It's not better than Halo. But PS4 is better than the XBone.

Halo's a great series. And although I won't be playing the remainder of the new trilogy at home .. because I won't be buying an Xbox One, I will play it at a friends house. I need to finish Chief's story. But no way in hell is it better than Uncharted. Story & characters are waaaayyy better in Uncharted.

Halo has gone on long enough and is becoming like COD with less and less innovation every new game that comes out. It needs to die off just like COD

Brandon Klein That would be call of dooter. Most overrated garbage for the past decade.

Uncharted is a campy self parody that stays consistent... Halo is oblivious and inconsistent in tone... Halo should have ended with Reach......... They're both good series but all good things have to come to an end... or see themselves milked dry by greedy publishers...

I see so much jealousy! If you went with a different console that's your own fault. Microsoft had a clear lineup of killer AAA software they wanted to get out early in the Xbox One's life and they are doing a damn fine job of it. Titanfall, Sunset Overdrive, Fable Legends, Quantum Break and Halo. Great year to be an Xbox One owner :)

and yes u can install a hard drive into Xbox, if u know how to mod a WD and change the security sector so it reads it, why have a 1tb anyways, when most people these days streams movies, music whatever threw there network, , all 1tb hard drives iv seen all end up with some fault in there memories somewhere, sooner or later they will die,

@matt sekorski, actually you cant, if u read that little white booklet it states, installing a internal hard drive voids the warrantee, even if its one from ps4. If it didn't come in the box when u bought it, anything u add will void the warrantee, unless u took it out when sending it in, but it still void the warrantee. Read the dame white booklet

its not the first game to suck, and it wont be the last, question is what are the devs going to change, or add to bring this back on the map.

I was speaking through my own experience, it's not a myth and I do have a clue! I love PC gameing especially strategy games but it does cost money to keep up to date. Fact

They...already confirmed this months ago. The E3 trailer said "coming 2014" if memory serves.

No, it really didn't. Especially after Bungie royally screwed up Reach.

Other people that hate Halo care, your logic is flawed. And according to your next comment basically everybody sucks besides people that worship Xbox, it's ok to worship something as long as those people worship the same thing as you do, huh?

Im a Halo fan, not a Bungie fan... Even though Halo 4 didn't live to its full potential (in terms of story), it is still a great game, and I'll stand by 343i until the end of my favorite franchise.

Halo is one of the worst games I've ever had the chance of playing in my life kid. Better than Killzone and BF LOL good joke.

Really wish Halo would do what Unreal did with the tournament lineup, and come out with a competitive multiplay only series with similar modes.

Who gives a shit about title. Halo 5 would be fine.
Maybe it will be Halo One?

The thing is if it were to come to Windows it would still be an exclusive anyway.

Oh, and by the way, worshiping a company, putting it on some kind of holy pedder stool is just sad. It is just a company that make consumer products. It ain't your family! All they care in that company is seeing you as a number. This kind of company loyalty, to any kind of company is whats the problem with a lot of people today. Consumerism has taken over to some weird extremes. So much so, that you are now seeing what you buy as some kind of personal statement. Like, if someone has a differing opinion to that bought product it is like they are judging you as a person. People detach yourself from that kind of view point. They are just bought things, you do not actually need, just want. By doing this you are giving more power to the company, so much so that they are now telling you what to buy not you telling them what to sell.

Speaking as a pc gamer, and console gamer (THAT is expensive) you clearly haven't invested much time into pc gaming. It's a myth, usually spread by people who haven't got a clue, that pcs need to be updated constantly. My last update was mid last year and that was my first in about 5 - 6 years. The set up I've got now, which is distinctly mid range, should last another 5. It cost a hundred more than an xboxone. Not all pc games require the absolute max possible set up, infact despite talk from the snobs in our community, very very very few games come out in a year that need such hardware. The majority of games will run at max on a mid range.

But if no one cares what the general customer thinks, won't more and more crappy titles be released, no?

I like the idea of PC but they cost more than both consoles and you constantly need to upgrade them to keep New games running on them ...

@inspectercoleyI was also thinking they would screw with the chronology just for the sake of it. Perhaps Halo: Unnecessary Subtitle (so we don't have to call it Halo 5).

No you don't, that's a ridiculous common misconception that you need a new 500$ GPU every 2 years or whatever. Not even remotely close to being true.
