Halo 5: Guardians will release worldwide on Tuesday, October 27, exclusively on Xbox One, Microsoft has announced.
The date suggests that the sci-fi shooter could release just prior to this year’s Call of Duty which, if previous years are anything to go by, is expected to launch in the first or second week of November.
“We wanted Halo 5: Guardians to be the game that pays off the epic promise of the Halo universe in scope and scale and drama,” said 343 Industries head Bonnie Ross. “We want to amaze players with the sheer size of the worlds and battles they’ll experience, even as they question everything they thought they knew about its heroes, marvels and mysteries. #HunttheTruth is only the beginning and we can”t wait to debut the game to Xbox fans around the world at E3 this June.”
