Any time you transition to a brand new platform, there’s the chance to take a look at issues with a brand new perspective. For us at 343 Industries, the launch of the Xbox One was a possibility to consider what tales we needed to inform, find out how to inform them, and the way finest to push the “Halo” franchise to showcase the platform. And, most significantly, combining our ardour for “Halo” with the vocal and informative enter from our followers.

“Halo” isn’t merely a perennial sport franchise, it’s part of the Xbox platform itself. When it comes to innovation and ideation, it’s typically essential to individuals who may not even play “Halo.” And naturally it’s a ardour and a necessary expertise for 2 generations of avid gamers.  So we requested ourselves, how do we start and the place can we go together with “Halo” on Xbox One? 

Previously, “Halo” video games have pushed the Xbox ahead, showcasing the console and its ecosystem in entertaining and modern methods. Making a “Halo” sport that runs at 60 frames per second, on devoted servers, with the scope, options and scale we’ve been dreaming of for greater than a decade, is non-trivial.  It’s a process that we, at 343 Industries, are taking very significantly to make sure we ship the “Halo” sport that followers deserve, and a sport that’s constructed from the bottom up for Xbox One.   

I’m blissful to disclose that “Halo 5: Guardians,” the following installment within the legendary saga of the Grasp Chief, will launch on Xbox One in fall of 2015.  Within the custom of each “Halo” sport since its debut in 2001, it’s a large and thrilling undertaking.

“Halo 5: Guardians” is an even bigger effort than “Halo four.”  That applies to the content material and scope of the sport, in addition to the expertise in what’s now a model new and extra highly effective engine.  Actually there are some core components carried over from prior video games, however we’ve invested an enormous effort in retooling our tech to take full benefit of the Xbox One’s and ecosystem to create worlds and experiences worthy of next-gen.

It’s a sport that can hopefully reveal the expertise, learnings and skills of the 343 Industries staff. A sport that can incorporate the issues we realized from “Halo four” about expertise, aesthetics, efficiency and scale – and maybe extra importantly, understanding and embracing a neighborhood of avid gamers who love what lies on the coronary heart of this sport, and the limitless potential of the “Halo” universe.

And 2015 received’t merely be the yr of “Halo 5: Guardians,” it can even be a yr that gives us a novel alternative. The chance to ask previous mates and new audiences into that universe by the “Halo” tv collection, launched as a novel collaboration with Steven Spielberg and a number of the most interesting inventive minds within the enterprise.  A collection that can stand alone, in addition to complement and enrich the sport expertise.  We’ll have extra to share on the “Halo” tv collection as we close to its projected fall 2015 launch.

Your Journey Begins in 2014

Many followers famous that I used to be very deliberate with my phrasing on stage at E3 final yr. I spoke a few

We’ll offer you far more details about our plans for this yr on the Xbox E3 2014 Media Briefing on June 9, and we’re assured that “Halo” followers can be fairly excited in regards to the particular plans now we have in retailer.

So till E3, I’d like to specific my gratitude to our large and assorted Halo neighborhood, whose vitality, enthusiasm, criticism and kindness are the driving drive behind what we do and what we hope to attain in “Halo 5: Guardians.”
