The game wasn't announced for Xbox One X support even though nearly every other major first party game was confirmed to get it. Halo is one of the biggest franchise on the Xbox One so its absence was noted and Phil Spencer assured that they have plans for it. Noticeably absent from the list was Halo 5 and it looks like we now know why. All in all, you've got Halo 4, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST.
We'll have more to share on this front as we get closer to release, so stay tuned.
Halo may have been conspicuously absent at Microsoft's E3 presentation this year, but that doesn't mean we won't be seeing the software giant's biggest game franchise on Xbox One X this holiday season.
The team also revealed that four more Halo games will be coming to the Xbox One backward compatibility program later in the year.
At the very least 343 Industries seems to be taking their time with the next mainline Halo shooter, and I can only hope they've made some dramatic changes to their process-the future of Halo depends on it.
Along with the campaign and multiplayer, LAN play will be supported, especially when playing between Xbox One and Xbox 360. With that being said, if you're looking for a Halo fix, today 343 Industries announced that four Halo games will be joining Backward Compatibility for the Xbox One! Is this good news or bad news for Master Chief Collection owners?
