If you’ve held off on purchasing the Xbox One and are only planning on doing so with the release of Halo 5: Guardians, you might be interested to learn that there will be a limited edition version of the Xbox One that could be launched alongside the game. This is according to Halo 5: Guardian’s studio head Josh Holmes who responded to a question posed by a fan on Twitter.
When asked if there would be a Halo 5 Xbox One, Holmes replied in the affirmative by saying, “There is a limited edition console coming, yes. It hasn’t been revealed yet, but it’s pretty sweet.” Unfortunately Holmes did not provide a date as to when we might be able to expect the console to be unveiled, but if we had to venture a guess we’d say that it might be unveiled closer to Halo 5’s launch date.
The game is scheduled for a release this fall, the 27th of October to be specific, so in the weeks/months leading to that we expect we will find out more. Alternatively Microsoft could choose to make an announcement at E3 2015 which is taking place in the middle of the year, so we guess we’ll just have to keep an eye out for it.
This isn’t the first time that developers and console makers have released hardware that has been designed for the game, at least on the outside (the innards will most likely remain unchanged). Given the popularity of the Halo franchise, safe to say that many are looking forward to it and we’ll keep you guys updated when we learn more.
