Halo 5: Guardians is an upcoming Halo game announced during Microsoft's E3 2013 presentation as the second chapter in the John-117 storyline of the Reclaimer Saga and the sequel to Halo 4.


Xbox One RevealEdit

Halo (Xbox One) was confirmed to be in development for the Xbox One during the Xbox One Reveal event on May 21, 2013.[1]

E3 2013Edit

“There was no ambiguity in not putting a number after the game. For me, what we showed wasn’t the game. Nobody should be confused on that. I didn’t really want to try to show something that was clearly a thought piece by the studio around where Master Chief is in his journey, and then drop the name after it and be somewhat disingenuous about that being the game. But I did want Bonnie [Ross] to come out and say 'First-person shooter. Master Chief.' Because they'll get the questions: 'Hey, is this ODST? What are you guys doing?' Bonnie [Ross] comes out and reaffirms that 343 is building this game. It’s Master Chief. It’s a first-person shooter at 60 frames per second. It’s coming in 2014.”
— Phil Spencer, regarding the teaser trailer[2]

Xbox WireEdit

On May 16, 2014, Bonnie Ross, General Manager of 343 Industries, announced on Xbox Wire that the Halo game will be named Halo 5: Guardians and will be released in Fall 2015.[3] Bonnie also announced that Halo 5: Guardians will run on a new and more powerful engine.


  • Armor Abilities will not be present in Halo 5: Guardians.[4] The "new Spartan abilities" mentioned in the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta announcement trailer are not Armor Abilities.[5] Each ability can be used by all. They are:
    • Thruster Pack: Similar to Thruster Pack from Halo 4, except now there is movement in any direction[6]
    • Ground Pound: While in air, you can slam down into the ground, potentially killing anyone below[6]
    • Clamber: If you miss a ledge, you can pull yourself up[6]
    • Slide: While sprinting, you can slide[6]
    • Charge: While sprinting, you can slam into an enemy[6]
    • Sprint: Sprinting like in Halo 4, but after a certain amount of time, you will achieve the perfect velocity to activate the previous two abilities. Sprinting will stop shield recharge.[6]
    • Smart Scope: A zoom function that applies to all weapons. Each weapon has a different degree of zoom[6]
  • Jameson Locke will be a playable character in Halo 5: Guardians.[7][8]
  • Spectator mode in multiplayer matches.[9]

Halo 5 Guardians Multiplayer Beta



  1. 1.0 1.1 This mode name has been constantly confused with the map Breakout in fan and official reports. This can be best seen in video versus the official page. As such, the name of the mode is not certainly clear and could change at anytime. The name choices are based off of Halo Waypoint's page stating the map name.
