Microsoft’s exciting news flashing on launch of the sequel to the original Halo game, “Halo 5: Guardians” for the Xbox One and “Halo” television series has thrilled many gamers across the world.
Microsoft is going to release its video game sequel produced by the Steven Spielberg in fall 2015. The game is a new addition to the Sci-Fi shooter series starring super-solider Master Chief, runs at 60 frames per second on a fresh engine created by “Halo” developer 343 studios.
The franchise development director at 343 said “Halo 5: Guardians’ is obviously a big deal for us”. Moreover, it is the new series in the Master Chief saga. It is also a huge leap by Microsoft as there will be a transition of this game to its Xbox One Platform. More or less, the majority of Halo games have supplemented with the Xbox ecosystem.
The general manager of the 343 studies, Bonnie Ross, says that the rest of the additional plans this year for the “Halo” franchise, and the same will be announced at June 9 at Microsoft’s presentation at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, going to be one of the largest annual gatherings of the gaming industry.
Adding some story of the game, he said the following in a statement:
“Halo 5: Guardians” is a bigger effort than “Halo 4.” 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.
Last year’s E3 witnessed the Microsoft’s footage related to the cloaked figure revealed by the Master Chief with a bird-like robot placed in a desert with a caption “2014: Your Journey Begins on Xbox One”. However, Halo 4 released in 2012, for Xbox 360, has already made smashing records by hitting the great figures of $300 million in its opening week. A digital series “Forward Unto Dawn” was also released at the same time.
“Halo: Spartan Assault,” the previous edition of the game was first released in July 2013 on Windows 8 PC and Windows Phone 8 platform, which entered into the Xbox console in last December-end with revamped game controls, enhanced audio such as adding 7.1 Surround Sound as well as remastering the SFX along with the new music and VO.
This year, the Microsoft’s first decision was to appoint Ridley Scott as an executive producer for its “Halo” film. Alongside the entry of Xbox One is going to boost its energy to a multiple time. Microsoft’s last month’s status update states that in the last quarter the Xbox One’s overall sales has been slowed to 1.2 million. But after March the company has sold around 4 million units because of the holiday season. Meanwhile, Sony has already sold over 7 million PlayStation 4 gaming consoles.
The new franchise of Halo will be announced at the Xbox’s Media Briefing at E3 2014, the largest annual gathering of the gaming industry on June 9.
