[UDPATE] Following the publication of this story, Halo voice actor Steve Downes and Microsoft issued new statements to GameZone.

"It sounds like I was 'confirming' [an] H2A edition, which I most certainly was not," Downes said. "I'm in no position to do that as I have no knowledge of it. I was only mentioning what I had seen on line about it."

Meanwhile, Microsoft's statement for Downes reads: "I think you're ahead of yourself on H5. I have read some things on line that you can look forward to a H2 anniversary edition maybe this year, but I have no official information one way or the other."

The original story is below.

The voice of Master Chief has stated that Halo fans should expect a new entry to the series to drop next year.

Speaking in a recent interview with GameZone, voice actor Steve Downes said, "I think you may be ahead of yourself on Halo 5. I wouldn't expect anything until 2015."

It was not revealed what consoles the game would be released for, or which studio would be taking the lead on development.

Downes also confirmed that the anniversary edition of Halo 2 would be launching this year, marking 10 years since the game's first release. A Microsoft representative told GameSpot, "We can confirm your next Halo journey will begin in 2014, but beyond that, we don’t have any details to share at this time."

The news lines up with previous rumours that have surfaced regarding an anniversary release of Halo 2 for the Xbox One.

The most recent numbered entry to the Halo series, Halo 4, launched in November 2012 exclusively for Xbox 360. A Game of the Year Edition was released last year, which included three expansion packs as well as various other in-game content.
