There will definitely be some Halo news at E3 2014, Microsoft has said.

"Halo news will be coming at E3," said Microsoft exec Phil Spencer on Twitter. "343i has a great plan in place, will be cool to share with everyone."

But what could it be? Halo 2 Anniversary? Halo 5? A trailer for whatever live action Halo series that Steven Spielberg is working on, the one that's been completely absent since Microsoft first unveiled the Xbox One?

While Microsoft isn't exactly shy about teasing Halo news, the company will only officially confirm that the Halo 'journey' will continue in 2014.

One rumour is that Halo 5 won't see a release until 2015, leaving Halo 2 Anniversary to represent Master Chief on store shelves this holiday season.

343 Industries recently spoke briefly about how it plans to make Halo 5 more "transformative" than its predecessor.

"We're proud of what we accomplished with our first release in Halo 4 and now we're focused on something much more transformative as we make the leap to the next generation of Xbox," 343i executive producer Josh Holmes said back in January.

The creative director for the new Halo will also be Tim Longo, who previously worked on Tomb Raider.

A trailer for the title that many presume to be Halo 5--though Microsoft won't say for sure--was shown at E3 2013. But will it come out in 2014?
