Halo 5 is easily one of the most anticipated games for Xbox One owners, for reasons I am unable to fathom people are excited for the fifth entry in the franchise that I personally feel is more generic then Call of Duty, however I digress. Halo fans have been highly anticipating a release date for the game and now thanks to a live action ad that aired during an episode of The Walking Dead a release date has been announced. The game has been given an official release date of October 27th of this year so you can look forward to getting your hands on Halo 5 then.

Here is a synopsis of the commercial:

At the conclusion of the commercial, a still of which previously leaked, Agent Locke walks through a human city reduced to rubble, towards a statue of Master Chief. It appears that Locke is addressing the statue, but as he approaches, we see Master Chief, with a massive hole in the upper left shoulder of his armor, sitting wounded at the base of the statue. Locke angrily blames Chief for the destruction around them, saying he was humanity's savior and now betrayer. He switches to his pistol and the commercial ends as Locke draws on Chief, and then we see a Halo 5 logo screen and a release date: 10.27.15.

Many had been assuming that Halo 5 would be releasing in November however this has been proven not to be the case, as of now we have no confirmed release for any first party games from Microsoft for November.
