New, 57 comments

The next chapter in the Halo franchise will come to Xbox One this year, despite being MIA from a list of the console's big 2014 games, according to Halo senior PR manager Rob Semsey.

The nameless Halo game was announced during E3 2013; it's expected to pick up where Halo 4 left off and incorporate cloud features.

During an interview with Polygon just before the Xbox One's launch last year, Microsoft Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer said that more game announcements were yet to come. However, Spencer couldn't provide any updates on when the next-gen Halo would arrive.

Following the Xbox One's arrival, Spencer said there was no new Halo title at launch because of the team's commitment to finishing Halo 4.

The latest Halo title, top-down third-person shooter Spartan Assault, launched for Xbox One Dec. 23, 2013. For more on the game, read our review.
