Halo 5

The launch hype for the Xbox One exclusive shooter Halo 5: Guardians is slowly ramping up. Microsoft has announced that the launch TV commercial for the game will make its debut on Sunday, September 27 as part of NBC's Sunday Night Football game broadcast.

Microsoft will debut the trailer a full month before Halo 5 itself is released on Oct. 27. Speaking of working ahead of time, Microsoft's main Halo developer 343 Industries is already working on Halo 6, or whatever the game will eventually be called. GamesRadar stated:

"We do kind of know what's going to happen in the next game pretty well at this point," explains franchise development director Frank O'Connor. "We're doing serious real planning and even some writing on the next game already, and that's a luxury – we've never been in that position before. So we both know at a very high level what's going to happen in, say, ten years from now. But at that very granular level knowing what's going to happen in the next game and that's just been a great feeling for me".
