Larry Hryb has made some additional teases for future gaming conventions. According to a report from Dual Shockers on April 20, the director of programming for the Xbox Live division at Microsoft stated that he and Jeff Rubenstein has something “super cool” to show off at PAX Prime. However, he currently can’t say much about the mysterious project.
PAX Prime will be taking place in Seattle on Aug. 20. The event isn’t too far away from the headquarters of Microsoft, making some believed that the company is going to have a big presence on the show floor. The 343 Industries studio, the development team behind the upcoming tentatively-titled “Halo 5,” is also located nearby.
Larry Hryb may have been referring to an unannounced video game, possibly for the Xbox One. Phil Spencer, the new head of the overall Xbox division, previously hinted that Microsoft is going to be making several big announcements at E3 2014 in June. Larry Hryb stated that the team is current very “deep” into the planning stages for the event.
“Halo 5,” as well as the long-rumored “Halo 2 Anniversary,” could be some of the potential reveals made by the company as Phil Spencer previously promised that new updates will be provided for the popular franchise. New information should also be provided for other first-party games such as “Quantum Break” and “Sunset Overdrive.” Finally, Microsoft is also rumored to be showing off “Crackdown 3,” “Forza Horizon 2” along with a potential massively multiplayer online follow-up to “State of Decay” at E3 2014.
The voice actor behind Master Chief, as well as other reports, suggested that “Halo 5” will be a 2015 game. The rumored “Halo 2 Anniversary” is most likely coming out later this year, however, with a potential multiplayer beta invite for the fifth numbered installment of the franchise included.
