During E3 in June, Microsoft gave a slight teaser of something related to Halo. Many regarded it as the next installment in the trilogy – Halo 5. However, later statements suggested that the project is not related to the said trilogy. With Gamescom around the corner, there’s a chance that we may get to see what exactly the new Halo title is.
