Halo 5 In 2013: Is It Too Much Too Soon?

GI - Though the plastic wrapping has just come off of Halo 4 and many other enthusiastic gamers won’t see it until Christmas, there is already talk and excitement for Halo 5 as work is underway for the next installment in the popular long-running, first-person shooter series. But this won’t be just any release. Not only will Halo 5 be available for the Xbox 360, it is being reported that the game is scheduled to come out in time for the release of the next generation console currently referred to as the Xbox 720. (Halo 5: Guardians, Next-Gen)

LOL theres no way micrsoft will release it next year sure maybe a spin off halo game but it takes 2 years minimum to produce a quality game the calibre of halo. But maybe a side story done by some other team that's not 343 might be ther for the launch of the next xbox

I agree there is no way Microsoft could do it. They only way the could do it is to have another studio working on it (similar to the COD and BF/MoH system with each team working to produce a game every two years). The question is would Microsoft do it in the future? I am not sure they would. Halo is a massive surge in profit for Microsoft and the worry with yearly releases for Halo is it could diminish the effect (The only game that has shown yearly releases work is COD, other games tend not to work as well). I could easily see them releasing a game every two years but not every year

I agree. I think we could possibly see an HD re-relese of Halo 2 for Xbox 360 and Xbox Next/Infinity/8. That would make the most sense for me. Releasing Halo 5 would fragment the Halo community and playerbase. People still play Halo 3...:-p
not sick of halo and gears and forza yet?

I highly doubt halo 5 will come out next year. Maybe Halo 2 re-work, but I doubt any other Halo.
Maybe Halo Wars 2.
dragunrising  +   585d ago
I didn't read your comment before I commented- essentially said the same thing haha. I wouldn't mind Halo Wars 2 with the Forerunners mixed in nor Halo 2 rework. Halo 2 released as an DLC add on would be acceptable.
jaklink  +   585d ago
There is no possible way that's going to happen. The only thing that could foreseeably happen would be a Halo 2 remaster. But Halo 5? That's just the circumstance of a website's pathetic attempt to score hits.

Doubt it. Halo is a quality series, it takes much more than 365 days to accomplish that feat.
blue_flowers  +   585d ago
what the hell kind of article is this, Halo 4 took 3 years to develop, what financial, commercial, gameplay, graphics,or features would they gain by releasing another halo game? halo fans arent ccd fans.
Oh_Yeah  +   585d ago
As long as they reinvent it a bit... Then 5 wouldn't be a problem. If it's more of the same, then yeah it is to soon might as well just release some dlc.
fermcr  +   585d ago
Next year it will probably be a special edition of Halo 2 HD for X360.
dragunrising  +   585d ago
I seems the disagree trolls don't like people that suggest halo 2 remake. Not strange at all...
BanBrother  +   585d ago
I agreed, as it is still likely.

However, I think that the rumours of a Halo Wars 2 would make me think it is coming out next year.

They said they didn't want to release a Halo 2 HD, as the only reason they did a CE HD was because of the anniversary. If they are true to their word, Halo 2 CE will be in 2014, to mark its 10 year anniv.

They will most likely continue the yearly release trend, but the CORE (1,2,3,Reach, 4) Halo games have traditionally had a 3 year gap between them, or at least a 3 year dev cycle.
hennessey86  +   585d ago
Will be shown at e3 but it won't be released until 2014, we will probably see a tech demo showing of the next gen graphics.
CraigandDayDay  +   585d ago
You have got to be kidding me. lol Halo 4 this year and then Halo 5 next year?? That's way to fast. I cannot stand games that release yearly. That goes for CoD too. It's just too much too fast. Release a game and support it with free and paid DLC (mostly free) and then release a new game in a couple years. Geez.
StrongMan  +   585d ago
Some form of Halo releases every year but it won't be Halo 5 next year. Maybe ODST 2?
Thatlalala  +   585d ago
Chances are you will see a Halo 2 Anniversary Edition
Commandar_Shepard  +   585d ago
There is a 0% chance Halo 5 will be out next year. Halo 4 took 343 3 years to make so I expect 5 to have the same amount of dev time.
BanBrother  +   585d ago
There was already an article that said it was already in development for next-gen.

Don't know if that is true though. Halo Wars 2 and Halo 2 Anniv are likely, though if Halo 2 came out in 2014 it would be its 10 year anniversary.
Jek_Porkins  +   585d ago
Microsoft has quietly released a Halo game every year for the last 4 or 5 years, but they weren't Halo sequels per se.

I think Halo 5 is in development, but the only studio that will handle the Master Chief Halo games is obviously 343i. I could see Halo 2 Anniversary next year, then Halo Wars 2 the year after. No way do we see Halo 5 next year though, I'd bet a million dollars.
ThichQuangDuck  +   585d ago
Halo 2 Anniversary edition for Xbox Launch which will be Fall 2014 to many's surprise
LAWSON72  +   585d ago
I hope they remake halo 2 and add some classic maps.
Shadonic  +   585d ago
didnt 343 say it would take them 3 years for each game ?or did i just read someone say that in a comment somewhere either way way too soon.
strigoi814  +   585d ago
MS can even make a Halo racing game and fanboys will rage to buy one..coz this is the only exclusive they have and making money..
kent80082007  +   585d ago
I remember rockstar saying they could have popped out a gta game every year but they fear people would stop caring. I think they're right.
tweet75  +   585d ago
no! there should be a new halo game every year as long as the quality is very high its a good thing
SegaKnuckles86  +   585d ago
That is pretty much impossible to do unless you have like 3 or more studios working on the games. Look at Call of Duty, they have two different studios working on their yearly releases and it takes two years per game even though one gets releases annually.

Also I don't think it is a good thing. It's a good way to stale a franchise.
MizTv  +   585d ago
Yes I would be!
Cod would be so much better if it came out every two or three years!
Halo does not need to be milked
Take your time and just make a badass game please
Mithan  +   585d ago
Wont happen.
Quit making stupid news posts hoping that people will click on your shitty site.

For the record, I didn't go into your shitty site because of this.

Post something intelligent and I might.
Dlacy13g  +   585d ago
I read this and thought WTF... talk about trying to turn random speculation into fact. This author is clueless and just throwing shit out there to get a rise out of people and hope one of the wild ideas actually comes true.
ALLWRONG  +   585d ago
Yeah right
MYSTERIO360  +   585d ago
If MS did that - they run the risk of their franchise growing stale with minor improvements. They need the halo franchise to keep going and be a refreshing & fun experience to play, if that happens MS don't have enough titles (that have such an impact as halo) to fall back on. Master chief is MS's talisman and its very unlikely to happen.
