This morning, a listing for Halo 5 was added to the Microsoft Store, giving us our first glimpse at the game’s story. A mysterious
MacGuffin data chip is at the center of a story where the Master Chief is running for his life from a group that hates “sentient life.” Optimus Prime won’t like the sound of that.
The Microsoft Store listing was quickly deleted, but thankfully, Destructoid was able to save a copy:
Halo for Xbox One takes the now-legendary saga to new heights and is one of the most anticipated games for the new console. In possession of a mysterious data chip, Petty Officer John-117, aka Master Chief, confronts a new battery of challenges and tests in a Herculean effort to stay alive in a galaxy where sentient life is mercilessly hunted. Pre-order the next chapter in the wildly popular Halo series designed exclusively for Xbox One.
Halo 5, which is still officially known as “Halo for Xbox One,” will be released in 2014.
