Examiner writes, "The Xbox 720 and next-generation consoles seem to be a bit of a mystery in some respects, but not to 343 Industries as they seem to be working on next-generation development for Halo 5."

Shittiest looking "5" i'v ever seen. lrn2phoshop.

Qrphe1751d ago

It's as bad as the 6 from RE6.

Campy da Camper1751d ago

Agreed. I read a comment about the RE6 looking like a giraffe blowing itself and now that is all I see.

Peppino71751d ago

At least there's something to look forward too.

Cam9771751d ago

Yeah, but it doesn't look like a retarded giraffe.

crxss1751d ago

This "5" looks like someone drew it in Paint.

geth1gh1751d ago

Where the hell in this article does anyone say anything about next gen consoles???

The only time its mentioned is when the author of the article implies it in the first paragraph. Guess he wants some serious hits to his page....

Blacktric1751d ago

First comment says how crappy the 5 looks in the obviously photoshopped thumbnail picture, the rest of the comments are just bunch of off topic crap agreeing with the guy or claiming there's worse. That's N4G community for ya.

On topic:

""We've done as much prototyping and storytelling and the future arc of the universe as we have on technology.

"So we're definitely working on the future but in some ways it's technologically agnostic at this point."

So there's nothing that states that the guy said Halo 5 is being developed for sure for Xbox 720. And that's Examiner for ya.

otherZinc1751d ago (Edited 1751d ago )

You guys didn't even read the article!
Its about development of Halo 5.

Per the ARTICLE!, this is a good move. I'm glad they understand we want the Halo Series to continue.

If you own a business or a team of developers, you want them constantly working on the next big thing. This is what 343 is doing, "working on the next big thing"!


showtimefolks1750d ago

well what did you think they will stop making halo games all of the sudden? in other news uncharted 4,gt6,killzone4,forza,fable,al an wake all will come to next gen system

Gamer19821750d ago

Halo is the new COD. Theres a new title out every year lately.. So differnt from the first 2, 3 years between 1 and 2 and 3 years between 2 and 3 yet now they are every year.. Rushed cash cows..

starchild1750d ago

You're an idiot. Last generation we only got two Halo games. This generation we have had two major Halo games (Halo 3 and Halo Reach), 1 spin off (Halo 3 ODST), and we are about to get a 3rd major Halo game (Halo 4). The Xbox 360 has been out since 2005.

How is that much different than 4 Uncharted games, 5 Ratchet & Clanks, 4 Resistances, etc?

There hasn't been a Halo out every year. Not even close. Halo Reach came out over two years ago. Halo 3 came out over 5 years ago.

The pace of new releases in the Halo franchise is actually fairly slow considering how wildly popular the series is.

killerhog1750d ago


Halo 3
Halo wars
Halo ostd
Halo reach
Halo HD
Halo 4

Uncharted 1-3
Uncharted golden abyss (psvita)
killzone 2-3, trilogy
Killzone (psvita)
Resistance 1-3
Resistance burning skies (psvita)
Wasn't most of the ratchet and clank technically dlc?

Psp is last gen, so like you implied, we ain't counting kz liberation or resistance then.

Crazyglues1750d ago

Come on' Really that 5 was just posted there for the story, it's not an official 343 Halo 5 logo.. LoL

The things you guys focus on... The story is about, "development has begun on Halo 5 for a next-generation system?"

Psycho_Mantis1750d ago

From my perspective is actulley looks like a women bending over giving a giraffe a blowjob....lok at it again im not kidding!

This is positive news

Even before the grand celebration caliber release of the industry leading platform exclusive first person shooter franchise with Halo 4. Halo fans can rest assured that Halo will carry on into the next generation of Microsoft and online gaming. With Halo 5 being developed for the successor of the current generation leading HD platform the "Xbox 720".

News has been breaking out left and right for future next generation platforms. Even rumors of an E3 2013 showing. The world has been on the sidelines patiently waiting for future Xbox confirmation. 343 has just given us the evidence needed to insure that the future of Xbox live is lurking.

Day one purchase for the Xbox 720, and Halo 5 when available wherever videogames are sold.

Rated E For Everyone

CalvinKlein1751d ago

ahha yeah sure, when someone praises someone that is not sony it is trolling to these sony fanboys lol. You can only write a positive comment about sony or you are trolling here on N4g.

ginsunuva1750d ago

No he's funny. I wanna read more.

MidnytRain1750d ago


Are you kidding? Have you read this guy's posts? He goes beyond simple praise. What he does would be more accurately described as "****-riding."

konnerbllb1750d ago

MidnytRain, Exactly. He's clearly a troll if you read enough of his posts.

Calvin, I own an xbox and ps3 but hardly play either. I don't consider myself bound to either console in a fanboy fashion.

Thatguy-3101751d ago

Your PR way of approaching these articles really make my day. Get a good laugh out of it. But seriously another Halo? How much more to the story is there?

LX-General-Kaos1751d ago (Edited 1751d ago )

Thank you for the support. Halo has a considerable amount of story left from past present and the future of the Halo timeline. There are books, side characters, and sub stories like the Forward to Dawn mini series. Which all have potential to be transferred onto disc for your future gaming experience. The fight is far from over in the Halo universe.

Trunkz Jr1751d ago

Milk it like Call of Duty is the thought process.

Blacklash931751d ago

This is a new trilogy and Microsoft isn't making that a secret. It's not like Bungie didn't leave the series wide open for another story after 3.

Allsystemgamer1751d ago

The halo universe is massive. It's as large as starwars an Star Trek. The lore is there. It doesn't have to revolve around cheif. There's the covenant wars, insurgencies, political issues, space development, how the covenant came to be, origin of the flood, the whole forerunner back story. I don't mind more halo so long as they keep it fresh ala halo 4 (which I got today an it's what reach SHOULD have been)

Septic1751d ago (Edited 1751d ago )

What do you mean another Halo? This is part of a new trilogy announced. And its not as if its being released annually, they are working on the next iteration of the game on next gen tech. Common sense would dictate that it would be prudent to do so.

Do you honestly think sequels to other FPS' like Killzone etc arent being worked on for next gen tech?

This is a good thing, unless of course you want a last minute rush job to get the game out on next gen consoles.

KMCROC1751d ago

A bunch if you have the right writers & vivid imagination. here's a few stories deep Space exploration, planet colonization. Also it a FPS/RPG in which your a soldier so as long that there are society's or country's,planets governed by humans there's always a story to create & tell with your soldier.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1751d ago

story doesn't matter. It's the $$$. If they have to chief will die and his son will be in part 6.

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF1751d ago

@septic... this is N4G man... land of the SDF! Of course another Halo game is bad.

But if this was the 4th Uncharted game, or 4th Killzone, or 3rd Infamous or 4th Resistance, or 6th GT... it would be all cherries!

N4G... where your bubbles can go down in an instant for saying something like... I love Halo, can't wait for Halo 4... you say something like that in a Halo article, and boom.. SDF are bubble bursting everywhere.

On topic... Heck ya Halo 5 is coming! Maybe it will come out in same time frame that Gears did as a heavy hitter when it first came out. I don't think a new Halo will be ready by next Year when Durango comes out. Could be wrong though.
