The game wasn't announced for Xbox One X support even though nearly every other major first party game was confirmed to get it. Halo is one of the biggest franchise on the Xbox One so its absence was noted and Phil Spencer assured that they have plans for it. Halo 5 now features dynamic resolution scaling (up to 1080p) to ensure that it runs at 60 FPS. Players will be able to play Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition, and will also get all of the maps for free on them. "We'll have more to share on this front as we get closer to release, so stay tuned", said 343 in a statement. 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.
Halo 5 will support true 4k resolution on Xbox One X, developer 343 Industries has announced.
According to 343, they'll be sharing "more details on the release timing soon". Despite all of these games being included on Halo: The Master Chief Collection, it's cool to see 343 committing to the backward compatibility program and making sure than the original 360 versions are playable on Xbox One as well. The new playlist will be built from scratch and will include a selection of community-made Halo 3 maps created using Forge in Halo 5 and will feature "classic" gameplay settings.
The fact that there are new Halo backwards compatible titles is both good and bad for a lot of Halo fans.
Halo 6 won't be revealed for a long time-the studio confirmed that the next Halo game won't be announced in 2017.
