A countdown timer tied to Halo 5: Guardians has gone live on Tumblr. Shared by Xbox senior public relations manager Rob Semsey on Twitter, the timer is set to expire on March 22, 6pm Pacific Time. The page features the image of a bullet embossed with the word "TRAITOR," the hashtag "#HUNTtheTRUTH," and the Halo 5: Guardians logo.

Details on what the reveal could be are sparse, but the game does not yet have a confirmed release date outside of Fall this year. Halo 5: Guardians was first revealed at E3 in 2013, and developer 343 Industries confirmed the Halo 5: Guardians name in May last year.

More recently, Xbox marketing executive Aaron Greenberg described the game as "jaw-dropping" and a game that 343 Industries has "dreamed of making," and went on to say that Halo 5: Guardians will "be huge." The studio ran a large three-week multiplayer beta for the game in December last year, which resulted in a large number of tweaks and adjustments.
