Halo 5: Guardians

We know that Halo 5: Guardians will be releasing for Xbox One in 2015 and that along with featuring a new character along with a returning Master Chief, there will be a new engine for the game.

Development director Frank O’Connor expanded on these details a bit more on NeoGAF. While revealing that the new character was no female, he did say there would be plenty of strong female characters present.

“There will be plenty of strong female characters in the game, but that is not a picture of one of them.”

He also talked about how the original engine made up a very small part of the current engine being used. “The things at the core are vital, but a tiny fraction of the overall engine footprint. It’s a new engine. Not an iteration or a rendering evolution. It’s a new engine.”

Rumours currently indicate that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be revealed at E3 2014 for Xbox One. What are your thoughts on all the Halo happenings? Let us know below.

    I think this stuff is silly feminist PC police nonsense. Halo has always featured strong female characters. I mean seriously, The Chief could not have done anything to the extent of which he did without Cortana figuring it out, not to mention the many other female Marines and Miranda Keyes and Spartan Palmer. What is the point of this article? Once you dive into the books there are even more strong female characters. Dr. Halsey the one who created the Spartan program was female. Actually what we need is a strong male character who is more than just a big gun… How about one of those for a change!? Lol.. Don’t get me wrong.. As a side character of course, I still want to play as The Chief! Maybe just give him more to do, you know.

      i agree coming from a man, men are too objectified in games as the “big guns” we have to do everything to do in the game to save the universe blah blah blah, why not have a mission where the objective is to relax? HOW HARD IS THAT press X to eat chips!!
