Halo fans shouldn’t get too excited for the next new entry in the core Halo series just yet, as the voice actor who portrays Master Chief has publicly stated that Halo 5 won’t see the light of day until 2015. In an interview with GameZone, voice actor Steve Downes seemed to confirm the rumoured plans for the franchise which seemed to leak out of Microsoft over the last few months.
“I think you may be ahead of yourself on Halo 5. I wouldn’t expect anything until 2015. What you can look forward to this year is an anniversary edition of Halo 2.”
With November this year being the tenth anniversary of Halo 2, and the fact that several Microsoft senior staffers mooting that the series would debut on Xbox One in 2014, many fans and people in the games industry feel that a Halo 2 remake is looking like a pretty firm bet for release later this year. Of course, Halo 2 is a very popular title, and would no doubt enjoy a strong release on Xbox One – but people want a new entry into the Halo series to really test out their new consoles.
