I know what you’re thinking. Another Halo rumor, blah de blah.
But that’s what get’s people hyped. Anyway, Channel 4 (UK) news showed a clip (click here) of a Microsoft rep, Jonathan Cluts, showing a reporter a Kinect-like interface on how everything works. If you look at the third icon in the video below, you will see an icon which reads “Inside Halo 5”.
If you consider Halo: Combat Evolved as Halo 1, Halo 2 as… Halo 2, Halo 3 as… Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST as Halo 3 still (but just an expansion), Halo: Reach as Halo 4, then quite possibly, the newest game would be known as Halo 5, if you understood a word of that.
Of course, many will think it’s just a placeholder, or it’s something of a video a fan may have come up with which was just used as the placeholder, but nowadays, you just can’t trust your eyes anymore.
So far, nothing has been announced by Microsoft or 343 Industries, the new owners of Halo, but we shall see in time.
