The title for the next installment of Halo's Reclaimer Trilogy may be Halo 5, according to the next-gen game's updated reveal trailer by production company Axis Animation.

The game's reveal trailer, released during E3, was created by Axis Animation and the latest version (below) shared by the UK-based studio now features "Halo 5" appearing at its conclusion.

Microsoft announced the next installment in the franchise during its E3 2103 press conference, revealing the game's 60fps frame rate and cloud computing features; however, the game's title was not divulged at the time.

Microsoft Game Studios' corporate vice president Phil Spencer said during E3 that the Reclaimer Trilogy — which began with 343 Industries' Halo 4 — has evolved beyond a three-game arc and will be more of a saga, as the company doesn't "want to limit the Reclaimer story within a trilogy." The upcoming first-person shooter is expected to launch on Xbox One in 2014.

Polygon has reached out to Microsoft to confirm the game's title.
