HALO 5: GUARDIANS and Steven Spielberg’s HALO TV Series Set for Fall 2015

Halo is one of the biggest video game franchises around, and now that the Xbox One is finding its way into more and more homes (and you no longer have to buy one that watches you sleep), there will eventually be enough of a base to make Halo 5 a smash hit.  Today, Microsoft announced that the fifth Halo game, entitled Halo 5: Guardians, will be released fall 2015.  In a statement from Bonnie Ross, the General Manager of 343 Industries (the studio behind Halo 5) the upcoming sequel will run “at 60 frames per second, on dedicated servers, with the scope, features and scale we’ve been dreaming of for more than a decade.”  Just think how crisp and clear tea-bagging your opponent’s corpse will be.  It will bring a tear to your eye.

Hit the jump for more Halo 5 details on Steven Spielberg‘s Halo TV series, which is also set for fall 2015.

When the Xbox One was first announced last year, it came with the reveal that Steven Spielberg would be producing a live-action TV series.  A couple weeks ago, we reported that the series could be coming to Showtime, and the episodes would later air on Xbox along with interactive options.  According to Variety, talks with Showtime are still underway, but no deal has been set.

In her post on Xbox’s website, Ross says that the TV series “will stand alone, as well as complement and enrich the game experience.”  I assume this means that if you’re watching it with interactive options, a character could stumble upon a powerful piece of equipment, and a little bubble pops up asking, “You can buy this now on Xbox Marketplace!”

That sounded funnier in my head.  Writing it down, it sounds sad and somewhat likely.
