Halo 5 confirmed for 2015 on Xbox One

Microsoft confirmed that Halo 5 which is officialy called Halo 5: Guardians, will not be released on Xbox One until fall 2015, but once again reiterated that the Halo journey will continue this year.

According to 343 Industries general manager Bonnie Ross "Making a Halo game that runs at 60 frames per second, on dedicated servers, with the scope, features, and scale we’ve been dreaming of for more than a decade, is non-trivial,"

"It’s a task that we, at 343 Industries, are taking very seriously to ensure we deliver the Halo game that fans deserve, and a game that is built from the ground up for Xbox One."

"Halo 5: Guardians is a bigger effort than Halo 4," and "That applies to the content and scope of the game, as well as the technology in what’s now a brand new and more powerful engine. Certainly there are some core elements carried over from prior games, but we’ve invested a huge effort in retooling our tech to take full advantage of the Xbox One’s hardware and ecosystem to create worlds and experiences worthy of next-gen."

"it’s a game that will hopefully demonstrate the talent, learnings and abilities of the 343 Industries team. A game that will incorporate the things we learned from Halo 4 about technology, aesthetics, performance and scale--and perhaps more importantly, understanding and embracing a community of gamers who love what lies at the heart of this game, and the limitless potential of the Halo universe."

Bonnie Ross describes the Halo journey as "begins in 2014 with a giant leap, rather than one small step."
