Master Chief returns on the Xbox One

It seems that Microsoft was saving it's big announcements for the E3 presentation. In a mysterious trailer showing a cloaked person walking through the desert, Master Chief himself showed his face...er helmet to reveal that 343 is working on the next (untitled) Halo game. We had been getting teased with the announcement of the upcoming top-down shooter, Halo: Spartan Assault, and the Halo TV show, but this will be the traditional FPS offering fans have been looking for.

The next Halo will be coming to the Xbox One and feature an upgraded engine, dedicated servers, 60 frames-per-second gameplay. Be sure to check back for more on the upcoming Halo title as we learn more in the coming days.
