Microsoft Discusses Halo E3 Reveal, Halo 2 Remake

During Microsoft's E3 press conference a few weeks back, the company teased Halo fans with an ambiguous trailer that featured a cloaked Master Chief.
IGN asked Microsoft Game Studios vice president Phil Spencer whether or not this teaser was effectively an announcement of Halo 5, to which the MS exec offered a slightly puzzling answer.
There was no ambiguity in not putting a number after the game. For me, what we showed wasn’t the game. Nobody should be confused on that. I didn’t really want to try to show something that was clearly a thought piece by the studio around where Master Chief is in his journey, and then drop the name after it and be somewhat disingenuous about that being the game.
The outlet then followed up by asking why the company even bothered teasing Halo if they weren't ready to formally announce a game. “If you go back in Halo history, and I’ve been around all of the Halos since Halo 1… Halo usually has two E3s," he responded.
What do you make of Spencer's statements? Are you excited about the future of the Halo franchise on the Xbox One? Let us know in the comments below.
