Halo 5 logo spotted in new upload of Xbox One trailer

Monday, 2nd September 2013 00:29 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The animation studio which produced the Halo teaser shown at E3 2013 has released a new version showing a Halo 5 logo.

The Vimeo embed below comes from Axis Animation, the team behind the teaser, which noted on Facebook that it was directed by John Allardice.

You’ve seen the trailer before, of course, but the logo is a new thing, and suggests that, at least at one point the trailer was intended for a game called Halo 5 – something Microsoft had denied, confusingly. A recent Microsoft Store slip certainly correlated the persistent belief that the new Halo will be an entry in the main series rather than a spin-off.

We don’t know much else about the new Halo, except that it will run at 60FPS and is coming to Xbox One.

Thanks, AllGamesBeta.

    @2 Exactly what I did. Still confused as to why Microsoft denied that it was Halo 5 though.

    @3 It might be a placeholder until they come up with the actual title of the game. It’s also possible that Axis assumed that the game would be called Halo 5 when they created the video for MS and 343.

    WWe don’t know much else about the new Halo, except that it will run at 60FPS and is coming to Xbox One”

    I see VG247 left out the bit about Halo getting dedicated servers again.

    I can see why the next entry in the series would be “Halo: Subtitle” rather than Halo 45 and *still* be the next chronological entry. With the launch of a new platform, MS would want to bring as many people into the franchise as possible and having some people think they’d need to play 4+ other games just to catch up could be seen as off-putting.
