Halo developer tweets cryptic message surrounding the game”

Guardians is one of the most gorgeous games on Xbox One and it's about to get a substantial upgrade.

Called the "Summer Celebration", 343 Industries has some fairly big news pertaining to past Halo installments.

343 Industries, Halo 5's developer, confirmed today that Halo 5 will indeed be receiving a 4K update to coincide with the release of the Xbox One X. They say it will be supporting true 4K for the title, which will be a welcome addition.

Key specifications of the Xbox One X include 8GB flash memory, 12GB GDDR5, 1TB HDD, 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc drive, HDMI 2.0b, AMD FreeSync, DTS 5.1, Dolby Digital 5.1, TrueHD with Atmos, Bluetooth, Dual band Wi-fi and IR Blaster.

Longtime fans have even more reason to celebrate.

The other Xbox 360 Halo games - Halo Reach, Halo Assault, and Halo Wars - already feature such support.

Details on the release date are yet to be announced, but more news is expected to come out at RTX Austin 2017, which takes place from 7th-9th July, and will include an exclusive hands-on preview with Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST running on Xbox One.

Always the poster boy for anything Xbox, Master Chief has become one of the most recognizable faces - er, helmets - in video gaming.

Additionally, 343 said it was working with Microsoft to add four legacy Halo games to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list. This is about as good as anyone could hope for, short of concrete news about future games. Once these previous titles are in the program, every Xbox 360 Halo add-on map pack in the Xbox Store will be available for free.
