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.

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.
