A new Halo game is currently in development for Xbox One, but we already knew that. What we still don't know, however, is exactly what the next chapter of the Master Chief's journey will hold. Fortunately, that's about to change.

As you can see, the game has been given a placeholder date of December 31st of next year, which is in line with Microsoft's prior promise that Xbox One gamers will have a new Halo to enjoy in 2014. In addition, a few story details were provided:
Halo for Xbox One takes the now-legendary saga to new heights and is one of the most anticipated games for the new console. In possession of a mysterious data chip, Petty Officer John-117, aka Master Chief, confronts a new battery of challenges and tests in a Herculean effort to stay alive in a galaxy where sentient life is mercilessly hunted. Pre-order the next chapter in the wildly popular Halo series designed exclusively for Xbox One.
PAX Prime has proven to be a major outlet for Microsoft to show off its prized first-person shooter in the past, so perhaps we'll get a few extra details this weekend. Hey... I can dream, can't I?
