The “Halo 5” and “Halo 2 Anniversary” release dates have been hinted by Steve Downes. According to a report from Softpedia on Feb. 14, the voice actor behind Master Chief disclosed that the next mainline installment of the “Halo” series won’t be launching until next year.

He also mentioned that Microsoft is planning to release “Halo 2 Anniversary” sometime later this year. You can take a look at some screens from “Halo 5” in the slideshow located to the left of this article and the comments by Steve Downes below (courtesy of Game Zone and Softpedia):

I think you may be ahead of yourself on Halo 5. I wouldn’t expect anything until 2015. What you can look forward to this year is an anniversary edition of Halo 2.

The voice actor may have unintentionally confirmed the name of “Halo 5” as Microsoft has not yet provided an official title for the next mainline installment. The new video game should run at 60 frames per second natively through the 1080p resolution. It will also support the new cloud servers.

“Halo 2 Anniversary” has been heavily rumored to be in development for the Xbox One. The remastered port may be developed by Saber Interactive, the same studio that helped with the production of the campaign for “Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary” on the Xbox 360.

“Halo 2 Anniversary” is speculated to come out exclusively for Microsoft’s new console on Nov. 9th, which is the tenth year anniversary of the original release of “Halo 2” on the Xbox.
