The lights are on
You've seen this trailer before. It was the one shown during E3 this year. This updated version of the trailer, however, shows a Halo 5 logo at the end instead of a plain Halo logo.
The updated trailer appears on Axis Animation's official Vimeo page. Axis does a lot of animation for Microsoft and its assorted studios, including the Spartan Ops videos, and the recent Fable Legends trailer.

Our TakeIt's no surprise that the next Halo will likely be called Halo 5, but it is confusing that it wasn't called Halo 5 from the beginning. Was there some tactic Microsoft was trying to employ during E3? Like, getting people excited about the franchise as opposed to a sequel? Or is this just more confusing messaging coming from Microsoft? Or is the addition of a 5 in this version of the trailer simply a mistake?

Awesome! I can't wait to see what new adventures await our super soldier hero come 2014.
Still waiting for Halo 2: Anniversary. But I still might get this when I get the X1.
As it should.
I'm still getting a PS4 at launch but already decided to get an Xbox One when Halo 5 comes out along with Titanfall. Loved Halo 4 and Reach so much.
SHOCKING, I TELL YOU!
Not like this was unexpected or anything, but it it's good to finally have confirmation.
Thanks for the update. Now I know where to go if I forget what comes after four.
I was calling it Halo 5 anyway now it's official.
Good for the Halo fans! I really hope that MS brings as many new exclusive IPs in as possible for the Xbox One though. Halo is good, but new IPs would be a welcome change of pace.
OMFG... I did not see that one coming... really, I did not know it would be Halo 5 D:... Really MS >.>
I dont think ill get this one, 4 wasn't that great IMO,and ive had everyone since that. Reach was kind of the beginning of the end for me
I never really got in to Halo. It just seems kinda bland and boring to me.
I want more Spartan Ops and I want to see a Halo 2 Anniversary trailer for next year. 2004-2014
