In all honesty it would be silly of Microsoft to change the naming system in the middle of a trilogy.

Abriael1318d ago

I think so too, but in that case it's also silly that they've been keeping the name a secret til now :D

cl19831318d ago

To drive people crazy.

Webbyy1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

Where did you guys see it in the video? :-/

edit: never mind. I see it :-)

randomass1711318d ago

The more you wait, the more you hunger. Microsoft is smart to build up hype, even if we know it's coming. Kinda like Zelda U. :)

truefan11318d ago

It will be titled Halo 5.

Microsoft is making some rounds in the hype train. Sunset Overdrive and Halo 5 tease today. Xbox is looking better and better everyday.


porkChop1317d ago

That's assuming the next game is in fact Halo 5, and not a side-story.

Your avatar makes me believe you're biased towards a numbering system. =P

Jazz41081317d ago

Well they did have Halo Reach

cl19831317d ago

However that was released when a on going trilogy wasn't already announced.

Haven confirmed on Halo 5.
I'm game.

christocolus1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago ) i come. Did you notice the photo just below the user profile pic which was highlighted in the article? I think the character in that photo is from halo.

One of the best SWAT maps in 4. Along with Skyline.

PixelNinja1317d ago

Sorry dude, it's just a place holder.

WeAreLegion1318d ago

Nice. Hoping the open world rumor is true.

CYCLEGAMER1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

Why would you want Halo to be open world...just curious?? Halo doesn't seem like that type of game. It is heavily story driven, and is not a mission based game.

IMO open world games fit best in third person games, not first person shooters.

WeAreLegion1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

Because it's already pretty darn massive. Making it open world, especially if there is seamless interplanetary travel, would be insane!

Mass Effect is heavily story driven and it works very well on that.

Edit: Really, everyone? -_-

mhunterjr1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

No reason a 'mission based game' can't be open world. And still be story driven.

If I had to guess, it would be more like mass effect than grand theft auto... allowing the player to fly from planet to planet, pick and choose missions that more or less are linear in structure... there world be the occasional large hub locations that are more reminiscent of gta, with npc characters to intact with, wild life and enemies to encounter, and a chance to do some exploration...

There's really no reason this couldn't work for a halo game. It was actually bungie's original plan to have halo1 play this way before MS got involved.

spicelicka1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

What legion said^

I probably wouldn't be open world like GTA or crackdown where you have one huge world and your missions are restricted within that world.

It could be something like ODST which was open world in a sense, but that was restricted to new mombasa, im more than sure halo 5 would cover many worlds.

Mass effect is the closest thing that comes to mind. It has linear smaller missions but the worlds are connected via a hub, and side missions you can choose to do on your own.

That would be perfect in my opinion because you wouldn't be restricted on large space with repetitive missions, and when you land on planets for story based levels you can still have your usual linear epic set piece driven missions.

Mystogan1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

I agree with you but that is not the case with Halo.
It should have been openworld a long time ago. The single player missions really feel like they need to be openworld.

Halo + OpenWorld = Epic

CYCLEGAMER1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

I guess I can see what you are saying, but that is not what I want out of Halo. I want a graphic heavy, story driven Halo. Halo has always been about the story for me and thats how I want to experience it. I don't want a bunch of side missions and other stuff getting in the way. There are already a few games out and coming out that are open world for the system, i.e. Sunset Overdrive, Dead Rising 3, Metal Gear...etc.

Edit: Mass Effect is also not a first person shooter.

randomass1711318d ago

I'm not sure Halo NEEDS to be an open world unless there is a ton of on screen characters to interact with. If they try it that'd be pretty interesting though.

Ulf1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

Whooooa. I was sure they were gonna call it Halo 8 Ultimate, and have Halo 8 Home edition for people who don't need all the guns.


Ausbo1318d ago

Confirmation. Will it be this year or next
