Halo 5 gets a shiny 4K update for Xbox One X

This means the game will run at native 4K on the Xbox One X compared to the Dynamic 1080p resolution on the Xbox One.

Halo 6 won't be revealed for a long time-the studio confirmed that the next Halo game won't be announced in 2017. Microsoft also went on to show a slew of games for the new console, but noticeably missing is one title that has been there since the beginning: Halo. Leading things off was words of Halo 5's 4K upgrade on the Xbox One X, something 343 admitted that it wasn't quite ready to commit to a few weeks ago at E3 in Los Angeles.

According to 343, they'll be sharing "more details on the release timing soon".

Key specifications of the Xbox One X include 8GB flash memory, 12GB GDDR5, 1TB HDD, 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc drive, HDMI 2.0b, AMD FreeSync, DTS 5.1, Dolby Digital 5.1, TrueHD with Atmos, Bluetooth, Dual band Wi-fi and IR Blaster.

Each game will support campaign, multiplayer, and LAN play. Much like the recent addition of Call of Duty: Ghosts to BC, this is all about giving fans options. Also joining in on the fun is Halo 3: ODST.

The listed games in today's news update all happen to be part of H:MCC, but only their original Xbox 360 code is getting updates as opposed to their recompiled H:MCC versions. Furthermore, once all of them join the program, every Xbox 360 Halo add-on map pack in the Xbox Store will be made available for free.

In other words, that's all we know: Halo 5 will not be remastered or re-released for Xbox One X. Instead the existing game will simply be updated to support 4K graphics on Xbox One X only.
