Current ‘HALO TRILOGY is actually a ‘SAGA.’ UH OKAY BUZZ WORDS!!!

Halo 4

Did you think that Halo 4 was the beginning of a trilogy? You fucking dullard. Trilogies are so 2000s. Now we are into the realm of the amorphous saga. Whatever the fuck that means. How do I interpret it? I take it to make a license to expand ceaselessly into the future, without having to justify story arcs and all that superfluous silliness.


The Halo series’ current Reclaimer Trilogy is now a “saga,” a Microsoft representative confirmed with GameSpot during E3.

“While we originally said trilogy, we’ve actually expanded this to more of a saga, so we don’t want to limit the Reclaimer story within a trilogy,” the representative explained. The Reclaimer Trilogy was originally set to span from 2012’s Halo 4 through the eventual Halo 6.

Xbox head Don Mattrick recently referred to the franchise’s E3 showing as “Halo 5.” Speaking with GameSpot, Microsoft Game Studios corporate VP Phil Spencer declined to say whether the next Halo game will be a fully fledged sequel or a spinoff in the vein ofHalo: Reach.

“It is the next Halo game that we are working on,” Spencer told GameSpot. “We will talk more about actually the story arc in the game and how it plays out; we’ve got more time to talk about that.” Whether the next game is Halo 5 or something else, Spencer did note that it will be “a legitimate version of Halo.”
