Halo 5 is an upcoming Halo game, introduced during Microsoft's E3 2013 presentation as the second chapter in the Reclaimer trilogy, and the sequel to Halo 4. Few details have been released regarding the game or its plot.
According to franchise director Frank O'Connor, 343 Industries "will do better next time", stating that the studio had learned a lot from the experience of creating such a thrilling and diverse game (Halo 4). He also said that he and the rest of 343 Industries look forward to meeting expectations with Halo 5 as a "next-generation" title.
Halo 5 was teased during Microsoft's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2013. It opened with a vast desert plain with a heavily cloaked figure walking across the sand hills. As the figure trends the sands, rocks suddenly start to float; and then they drop. After that, the sands in front of him begin to open up, only to give rise to a gargantuan, but unknown silver, bird-like figure with orange lights that holds a design similar to Forerunner technology. The cloaked figure holds out his hand, revealing a faded-deteriorating green, armored arm; and then the figure opens his hand, revealing the A.I. Data-core matrix chip that once held Cortana, now attached onto a dog tag chain. Then, the figure opens its "wings" and releases a large pulse, which knocks off the hood off of the cloaked figure, thus revealing John-117. As the large figure rises from the sand, John clenches the AI chip in his fist and turns his cracked visor to the monstrosity before him. And then, the screen blackens, and the title of "Halo" appears. Also, "2014" appears after the title fades away, which foretells the year of release.
It's planned to be a much darker game in comparison to the previous titles in the saga.
- At the end of Halo 4, the pedestal containing Cortana's data crystal chip was destroyed, most likely destroying the chip in the process. But because it was shown in the Teaser Trailer, this remains open to speculation.
