Is 'Halo 5' a Microsoft in-joke?

A Halo 5 logo has been spotted on an Xbox 360 screen at Microsoft's Redmond, Washington offices, which begs the question: whatever happened to Halo 4?

Channel 4 News managed to spot the Halo 5 logo on a recent press visit to Microsoft HQ.

However, there are some in the games industry that suspect this is little more than a clever in-joke from the folks at Microsoft. If so, we don't seem to be laughing.

You don't count game's like that, ODST and Reach are side games, the next Halo if released would be Halo 4 not 5...

We can go on and on... it's a business. If game or series proves that it can bring in money, you can count on a sequel to be made.

You do realize that ODST is a sidestory right? Pretty sure Bungie said so themselves, so there's no reason MS wouldn't think otherwise.

At the very least then, Halo 5 would at least be placeholder if not lazy code name.

I was just joking, i know about this.

Of course it's a joke. I mean a Halo sequel? Has it ever been done??

ksense2903d ago

MAJ0R2903d ago

it could be them trolling but huge corporation can still screw up

Zack_Fair2903d ago

4 halos in this gen. (3, odst, wars and reach)
maybe the "5" be the next.

ManBearPork2903d ago

Comparing Halo wars to the others isn't really fair. Thats like saying Warcraft and world of warcraft are the same game.

2 real Halos this gen. (3 and reach)
1 expansion (see the name Halo3:ODST)

Halo wars just shares the name. RTS- ensemble / FPS Bungie

That's why they call them "franchises" and they "all" milk them to death. That's right Sony, MS, Nintendo, Activision, and EA all "MILK" franchises. People that use the milked card remind me of people who say "I would never steal anything" then go home and download movies and music from torrent sites.

Then some people say things like this

"How to reboot a franchise like Final Fantasy?"


"But of course.
I'm buying all the collections.
All collections with two or three games and an irresistible price.
Support trophies for each game.

But I really wanted was a collection of Final Fantasy X and XII. (I dispense X-2)
I hope that Square decides to launch"

like the above cough Zack_Fair. The color "hypocrite" doesn't look good on anybody.
