A New Halo: Confirmed
With the introduction of new consoles, comes the introduction of new games. Franchises everywhere have been sorting out which series to bring along with the new consoles, and which ones to leave behind. Of course, Microsoft's Xbox has been planning on carrying along the Halo series since E3 of last year, when they released a trailer featuring the main character of Halo, The Chief. While there isn't much information about the actual game released until E3 itself, the release of Halo 5: Guardians, has been confirmed. Rumors say that the game will be ODST related, or be tied in with the story-line. We do, however, know that there will be a massive improvement on the graphics, as a new gaming system means a new, more powerful engine, which can run games at sixty frames per second, as opposed to the original thirty. The worlds generated are said to be worthy of the new generation consoles, and the General Manager of 343, Bonnie Ross himself, has said this Journey that is the Halo franchise will be making a Giant Leap this year, rather than small steps, as previous games have done. As I said earlier, there isn't much to reveal yet, until E3, but in that time, I'm sure Halo fans everywhere will be celebrating the next release of this Legendary game.
