Rumors on the internet can hardly be believed. But what if that rumor started from the mouth of 343 itself? Frank O'Connor had this to say when asked about development for Halo 5.
“We’ve done as much prototyping and storytelling and the future arc of the universe as we have on technology. So we’re definitely working on the future but in some ways it’s technologically agnostic at this point. We definitely have a lot of smart people inside the studio and outside the studio thinking about future technology and future development for sure,” O’Connor said.
Whether the new Xbox is out for the 2013 holidays or not, it looks like 343 is running full steam ahead for the improved system.
