The Rumor: Halo 5 won’t make its 2014 release window, according to Master Chief voice actor Steve Downes, who may or may not be chained up in a Microsoft dungeon right now for speaking out of turn. "I think you may be ahead of yourself on Halo 5," he said to Gamezone. "I wouldn't expect anything until 2015. What you can look forward to this year is an anniversary edition of Halo 2." And bam... just like that he also corroborates the heavily tipped Halo 2 Anniversary rumor.
Our Take: Whoopsie, Mr. Downes. Whoopsie indeed. We’d have thought that, having been the voice of Microsoft’s biggest gaming icon since 2001, Downes would have had a firm grasp of such things as, y’know, honoring non-disclosure agreements and stuff. Anyhow, no Halo 5 this year is disappointing if true, but we’re actually excited to see Halo 2 make a return.
