Well ever since we got that sand filled teaser at E3 last year, we knew it was only a matter of time until a new Halo landed on Xbox One. 13 years since the launch of Halo: Combat Evolved, next fall will see the launch of Halo 5: Guardians. 343 Industries says that the game will use a brand new engine and will incorporate the lessons they learned from Halo 4, which we referred to as the most accomplished game in the series in our review two years ago. As they did with Halo 4, we hope 343 are taking advantage of the rich mythology of the Halo universe for the Xbox One.
We’ll have more information on Halo 5: Guardians as it develops and you can read the full statement from 343 Industries after the jump.
