Halo 5: When Will it Come Out?

Gi - Halo 4 was a juggernaut success financially and it was critically praised. While the game came out Nov 4 2012, that does not mean people are not wondering when the next installment of the Reclaimer trilogy, Halo 5, will come out. Or at the very least, when will Microsoft announce the next Halo game from 343 Industries? There is the problem, Microsoft has been quiet. Extremely so, whether it is in regards to their next-gen plans or what games they plan to release in the final half of the year. (Halo 5: Guardians, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Time for some other IP's too on Microsoft's platforms.

I would bet quite alot of money halo 5 will come out in the next 2 years on the new xbox.

well Bungie isn't producing Ip's for MS only anymore and because Destiny is coming this year, I could see Halo 5 coming on PS4/720 and maybe the S3/360 in 2014

How do you figure that iGAM3R? Micrsoft owns the Halo IP and also owns the studio (343 Industries) it created to continue the Halo franchise. Do you think Microsoft would allow it's biggest IP to appear on a competitor's platform? I see zero chance of that happening since Bungie no longer has any ownership of the Halo IP.

Bungie isn't making Halo games any more. 343 Industries is. They made Halo 4 and supervised the re-make of Halo:Combat Evolved Anniversary. MS Owns Halo and 343 Industries.

Bungie is working on Destiny, a new multi-platform massive online first person shooter series involving "dungeons" and exploration, with Activision as their publisher.

"Time for some other IP's too on Microsoft's platforms"

Same could be said for Sony.

PS4 will have Uncharted 4,Twisted metal 7,killzone 4,5,6,7 and 8,Last of Us 1,2,3 and 4, Infamous 3&4,god of war 4,5,6,7 and 8 Ect,ect.

We won't see no hating on N4G about them games though will we.

Yes ladies and gents 343/MS will release Halo 5 but we knew this the same as Sony will be bleeding dry the same franchises they have been for the past 20 years.

I'm all into fairness, but seriously? Most of those franchises are less than 10 years old. Uncharted came out 5.5 years ago, Killzone is 8.5 years old, inFamous is 4 years old, God of War is 8 years old, and Twisted Metal is the only game you listed that even comes close to 20 years old. And are you seriously gonna say that The Last of Us, a game in which we haven't been shown/told anything regarding a sequel, is milked? The game that releases in two months for the first time?

Can't wait to see what Microsoft has in store though.I kinda want to see Perfect Dark 3 come to the next Xbox.

"Halo 5: When Will it Come Out?"
the fuck -.-? What is with these dumb articles lately?

It'll come obviously, with or after the next xbox. Definitely not the Xbox 360 and definitely not 2013 seeing as Halo 4 released 2012.

But with the success of yearly CoDs, Microsoft probably wouldn't slip up on the chance to have Halo 5 as a launch title for the next xbox.

Halo 4 was a nice pick up on the story. I think Reach left a bad taste in a lot of fans mouths unfortunately. Halo 4 should've been Reach all the way around. I'll look forward to halo 5 but MP wise, I care and care less.
xDHAV0K24x  +   523d ago
I loved Reach. The ending was amazing, the downfall of Noble team was epic and the space mission/powerups was refreshing. Halo 5 should arrive 1/2 way thru the 720's first yr at least cuz Halo 4 needs more time to shine
Shadonic  +   524d ago
I'd take some new IP's they can keep making halo not like there short on cash.
WUTCHUGUNNADO  +   524d ago
Halo 2's multiplayer will never be topped... bring back proximity voice
Jek_Porkins  +   524d ago
I think they take 3 years with the main installments, so I'd bank on a 2015 Halo 5 launch on the Xbox 720. By that time the install base should be large enough to warrant a Halo release and it'll do its typical 10-12 million, maybe more?

Looking forward to it very much, but would really love a Halo 2 HD remake to tide us over.
shivvy24  +   524d ago
I dont see it going higher than 12million
Jek_Porkins  +   524d ago
Why not? Halo 4 is already past 8 million in just 5 months. You don't think a next gen Halo game has a shot at beating 12 million? I think it's not only possible, but likely.
shivvy24  +   523d ago
@Jek , yea i get what ur saying but the fanbase for halo hasnt really grown , it ends up at 12mil and done , i mean 12 mil is still damn impressive
4lc4pon3  +   524d ago
Im sorry but IMO I thought Halo games were pretty mediocre. I guess thats just me tho
Dms2012  +   523d ago
I usually don't waste my time involving myself in a discussion about a game series I find "mediocre". let alone , play (because how else would you know) a series of games that I find mediocre.
Bar_Brothers  +   524d ago
Make it like Halo 2 = Day1
Well only if Next Xbox isnt allways online and doesnt block used games because if it does im not even buying the damn machine, i rather buy Ps4 or a Pc.

"Fuck new IPs lets just keep wrapping the same shit with a shiner coating am I right. Those morons will buy anything with the right branding." A direct quote from any CEO involved in gaming.
xDHAV0K24x  +   523d ago
What do u think a series does by making additional games outside of an introduction then a sequel? Isn't God of War Ascension a prequel? Didn't ps3 release an HD remake of the ps2 versions?
StreetsofRage  +   524d ago
2014 holiday release I would imagine. A year after the new xbox is released. That sounds about right.

I'm still hoping for a Halo Wars sequel.
DarkBlood  +   524d ago
i think im going to decide to wait to get the X7 *providing the always online thing never happens* till halo 5 comes out and get the inevitable themed console bundle

till then i will enjoy everything else i have including the upcoming ps4
Rask  +   524d ago
For now, i just want Halo 2 Anniversary on 360.
snowman2149  +   523d ago
If they end up remaking Halo 2 it will most likely be a launch title for the next xbox
FarCryLover182  +   524d ago
Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Halo 5 did come out this fall. Sure, it isn't likely, but I have a feeling that 343 had been multitasking and did Halo 4 while doing Halo 5.
snowman2149  +   523d ago
Halo needs to go back to basics. A Halo 2 remake with the classic multiplayer would be an awesome launch title for the next xbox
MikeyDucati1  +   523d ago
H4 was a success? Could have fooled me.
xDHAV0K24x  +   523d ago
Ur kidding right? Remember, Halo is a sci fi phenomenon. It's not just some fps. It's an expanded universe. Where are the killzone comics, novels, movies, etc? Respect.
MikeyDucati1  +   521d ago
Why are you fanboying? Who said anything about KillZone or my comment being an 360 versus PS3? That is not the case here. Several of my friends who had halo 4 traded it in after a couple days of playing. I was even excited to get my hands on it and joined in some co-op-it just wasn't fun. And I haven't heard people really talk about Halo 4 like they did for 3 and the others. And lets be honest here, without Bungie, the franchise will die. Especially when Destiny comes out...its going to be beyond Halo.
