The announcement came from 343’s general manager Bonnie Ross in a recent blog post saying of Master Chief’s next journey that,
“Halo 5: Guardians is a bigger effort than Halo 4. That applies to the content and scope of the game, as well as the technology in what’s now a brand new and more powerful engine. Certainly there are some core elements carried over from prior games, but we’ve invested a huge effort in retooling our tech to take full advantage of the Xbox One’s hardware and ecosystem to create worlds and experiences worthy of next-gen."
The next halo game will reportedly run at 60 frames per second on dedicated servers and will be on an unprecedented scale. Ross also teased that there may be an E3 appearance saying,
"Many fans noted that I was very deliberate with my phrasing on stage at E3 last year. I spoke about a 'journey,' rather than a destination – and that journey definitely begins in 2014 with a giant leap, rather than one small step. We’ll give you much more information about our plans for this year at the Xbox E3 2014 Media Briefing on June 9, and we’re confident that Halo fans will be pretty excited,”
Also due to arrive around the same time as the new Halo game will be the new Halo TV series being made with the help of Steven Spielberg.
