People who have been looking forward to playing Halo 5: Guardians on their Xbox One later this year just got some bad news. Contrary to a report from this week's Game Informer magazine preview on the game, Halo 5 will indeed require a paid subscription to Xbox Live Gold to access its online co-op modes.
As it turns out, it was not Game Informer who made that error, but 343 Industries studio head John Holmes who relayed the wrong information to the magazine. Now he has stated his mistake in a post on the Halo Waypoint website:
Holmes added that all copies of Halo 5: Guardians will include a code for a 14-day free trial of Xbox Live Gold. The company will reveal more information about the game next week at E3 2015, including a new and top secret multiplayer mode.
