The Great Journey

By Frankie - 22 minutes ago

As you’re probably aware, my boss and studio head for 343, Bonnie Ross, officially announced the next installment in the Halo saga: Halo 5: Guardians, coming in fall 2015 for Xbox One. I will be up front and admit that I don’t have much more detail to add, but here at Waypoint, our conversations tend to be a little more insider, a little more familiar. And this is no exception.

Last year at E3, Bonnie famously said, “Your journey begins in 2014…” Wait -- hang on -- you thought: “What journey is she talking about and why is Chief wearing a poncho?” Okay, some might call it a cloak, but the fact remains – you knew something more nuanced was afoot. So it’s quite likely that Bonnie’s 2015 release announcement today surprised no one in the Halo community. In fact, I suspect most of you who read the Halo Bulletin regularly anticipate there’s even more to come.

Well you might be right, but we’ll have significantly more to say about that at E3 and beyond. Suffice it to say, another shoe has yet to drop.

But getting the Halo 5: Guardians announce out of the way is a big weight off our shoulders. This audience has correctly stated and assumed that you can’t necessarily squish a full Halo game into anything less than a three year development schedule – and at least up to and including Halo 5: Guardians, that’s more or less true.

But we’re not just making a new game in that three year span, we’re also making a new engine. During the development of Halo 4, we pushed the Xbox 360 and the engine to its limits, and we were happy with the way we were able to make the Halo universe look. The Xbox 360 still has a few tricks up its sleeve, even now. We are moving to a whole new platform with the Xbox One – a new architecture, new graphics hardware and bluntly some new ways to think about gaming, period.

Bonnie also called out 60fps and dedicated servers last year – attractive, desirable, and possibly expected upgrades to the Halo experience. After all, we won’t be the first 60fps shooter out there. That said, these must-haves are not necessarily easy to achieve.

Previous Halo titles, Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 for example, strove to push the entire ecosystem forward – dual stick FPS with big open spaces in the case of Combat Evolved, and broadband matchmaking in Halo 2 – are just a couple of examples of the series innovating or amplifying ideas. So in building Halo 5: Guardians, we want to push the ecosystem as well as the universe. And we’ll have some surprises in store for new and loyal players of the series.

So that’s it for now, but E3 is just around the corner. So if you bide your time and hold your breath, you won’t have to wait too long to hear about the next steps on this Great Journey.

we already figured Halo 5 in 2015 right?

I don't know...... is this almost a further extension of the "spartan iv's, not master chief" from the MP in 4?

FYI. Frankie said on GAF, the new Spartan is not a girl and not Palmer (insinuated by the blue visor glow).

Other MS sources confirm it is not Cortana.

I call BS.  The hips and gap are very womanly.

The lovechild of Cortana and Master Chief.

I look at from this perspective. Why show the picture to only deny what fans may make of it? People on HBO are insisting it is Cortana (my first thought) even though it has been explicitly denied.

I have trouble imagining it is Cortana now because of where it may lead. That's all I'm saying on that.

343i and MS are into to playing with words now because it seems that drives the Internet engine. I hate that.

Look at the mirror image that is upside down.... It's MC.

But, you're right, the right-side-up image is noticeably less bulky when compared to the upside-down MC image.

So John-117 has a gender reassignment surgery after the end of H4? :P

Actually, maybe he does but it was unintentional. Look at that abdominal guard. If he bends over, it'll probably shear his genitals right off.

I'm not a fan of a subtitle for a main Halo game.

I think its a new set of armor for Master Chief. He's no longer what would be recognizable as human, so the new armor makes sense for the narrative.

Guardians? Seems like a limp wrist bitch slap at Bungie - You play as a Guardian of the new city in Destiny. That one new armor image looks a bit Didact-ish?

It wouldn't be a mirror, or shadow, image of Master Chief if it was a totally different character.

Maybe its an ancient human, Guilty Spark stole a ship from the UNSC at the end of the second Forerunner book to find friends he had before he was composed.

I thought of that too but it doesn't pass the "new character" test.

I even thought of how this could be a personification of offspring from MC and Cortana. Unlikely.
