Halo Xbox One is “the next chapter”, according to Microsoft Store – rumour

Friday, 30th August 2013 02:42 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The Microsoft Store has reportedly posted a few brief lines outlining the plot of the next Halo game for Xbox One, confirming it is a new story entry.

Although we weren’t able to find the original, according to a screengrab posted by AllGamesBeta, the Microsoft Store had this to say regarding the new Halo game:

“In possession of a mysterious data chip, Petty Officer John-117, aka Master Chief, confronts a new battery of challenges and tests in a Herculean effort to stay alive in a galaxy where sentient life is mercilessly hunted. Pre-order the next chapter in the wildly popular Halo series designed exclusively for Xbox One.”

Nobody has been really sure what the new Halo will be about because 343 Industries has said it’s not Halo 5, although it is a legitimate entry int he story and will expand on the Reclaimer trilogy.

The new game was announced at E3 2013 and is coming to Microsoft’s new console in 2014, and will run at 60 FPS.

    FYI, as soon as I see Backup or any variation of his account return to this site, it’s getting nuked.

    I can do this as long as you can mate. Keep going.

    True members of the Gamer Master Race (GMR) pay no allegiance to a single console nor do they create flame-wars.

    We consider those who do the dredges and slum dwellers of gaming as it is clear that the need for purchase recognition is only sought by those too dumb or too poor to afford more in life.

    Forsake using our name in vain and learn from your most recent gaff.

    The GMR have spoken!

    I can’t believe NOBODY has mentioned the OBVIOUS!

    Maybe it’s obvious to me because I was a US Navy Sailor.

    Guys! His name is NOT Master Chief (that’s his rank) now that you know this pay attention to what is said in the description: his rank is “Petty Officer”.

    Holy shit.
    Very good spot, I totally didnt think twice about his rank! Still, the fact that there are forerunners and his cortana chip is empty would mean its probably a sequel, but he has been demoted.
