Halo's Reclaimer Trilogy, which began with 343 Industries' Halo 4 and was originally planned to extend to entries 5 and 6 in Microsoft's flagship first-person shooter series, has been expanded to "more of a saga," Microsoft Game Studios' corporate vice president Phil Spencer told GameSpot during E3.
Microsoft revealed the next-gen installment in the franchise during its E3 2103 press conference, touting the game's targeted 60fps frame rate and cloud computing features. However, the game, which is headed to the Xbox One in 2014, was not named as Halo 5 or otherwise.
Spencer characterized the unnamed game as a "legitimate version of Halo," and said that the Reclaimer Trilogy has been expanded beyond the confines of a three-game arc.
"While we originally said trilogy, we've actually expanded this to more of a saga, so we don't want to limit the Reclaimer story within a trilogy," he said.
