Halo developer 343 Industries has now teased its plans for Halo 5 on the upcoming Xbox One X, revealing that the game will indeed receive a 4K update. Due out later this year, the update will bring "true 4K" support to the game, though that's all we know for now.
Given the fact that Halo was, as 343 puts it, conspicuously absent from the list of 4K games after the Xbox One X reveal at E3, it's definitely good to see it hasn't been left out of the party. We'll have to wait to learn more about 343's plans, but the studio says it will indeed have more to share as the release approaches.
As if Halo 5 in 4K weren't enough, 343 has also announced that an onslaught of Halo games will be hitting Xbox backward compatibility soon. In all, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: CE Anniversary will all be added later this year. On top of that, each Xbox 360 Halo add-on map pack in the Xbox Store will be available for free. Each title will support LAN play in addition to standard multiplayer.
