The eagerly awaited Halo game for the Xbox One is described to be "much more transformative" than its predecessor Halo 4, which was launched November 6th, 2012 selling roughly 8.5 million copies at the time of launch.

A post by 343 Industries executive producer Josh Holmes on the Halo Waypoint blog reads: "2014 is here and much is afoot in the Halo universe. This past year has been a time of great transition at 343 as we’ve moved our engine and team from Xbox 360 to Xbox One and begun building the next chapter in the Halo saga," he said. "We’re proud of what we accomplished with our first release in Halo 4 and now we’re focused on something much more transformative as we make the leap to the next generation of Xbox."
