New Halo 5: Guardians trailer leaks ahead of planned Oct. 4 reveal

The Halo team took to the game's official Twitter account today to tease a new Halo 5: Guardians trailer due to premier during Sunday's airing of Fear The Walking Dead. However, it looks like that trailer has leaked out a little early, and calls into question where we left off with Master Chief in the last trailer.

You'll remember that the last, live-action trailer led us to believe that the Master Chief was dead, having succumbed to his fate on October 27 (hey, that date sounds familiar…) of 2560. The leaked trailer seen above, however, seems to indicate that Master Chief's death was a farce, and we'll be hunting him down in some capacity, at least at the start of Halo 5: Guardians.

We're unsure how long the above trailer will stick around before Microsoft pulls it, so it'd be best to watch now if you can. Meanwhile, you can go ahead and pre-order Halo 5: Guardians from the links below if you haven't yet already.
