Today is Steve Downes Birthday, the voice of video game icon, Master Chief Petty Officer Sierra-117, or just Master Chief. Today he is 66 years old, but he surely looks much younger. We wish him a happy birthday, and we are excited to see what he does next in the eventual Halo 6.
Jen Taylor the voice of Cortana also wished him a happy birthday, how awesome!
Today is my partner in crime's Birthday, @SteveDownes117 . Happy Birthday Chief! Love you big!
The fifth numbered entry in the Halo franchise has been rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB, Gamesradar discovered today. All previous Halo titles — with the exception of Halo Wars, Spartan Assault and Spartan Strike, have been rated “M for Mature”.
The content descriptors reveal the game will feature blood, mild language, violence. It appears the violence in Halo 5 has been toned compared to its predecessors; its official rating summary mentions occasional blood-splatter effects, while Halo 4‘s lists “Large blood-splatter effects” and describes a gory scene. You can read the full rating summary for more detail.
Halo 5 Rating Summary:
This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a super soldier (Locke) searching for a missing character. Players use pistols, machine guns, grenade launchers, and futuristic weapons to kill alien and human enemies in frenetic combat. Battles are highlighted by realistic gunfire, explosions, and occasional blood-splatter effects. Characters can also use “assassinations” to kill characters by snapping their necks, or by stabbing them with bladed weapons. The word “a*s” appears in the dialogue, as well as occasional taunts/insults (e.g., “I have copulated…with your genetic progenitors!”; ‘Your father was a filthy colo and your mother was a hole in the wall!’)
Halo 5: Guardians launches on October 27, 2015, exclusively for Xbox One.
343i has released some new concept art on the upcoming Halo game. As you can see it seems to be maybe a colony, or a structure of some kind. Along with a brand new Covenant vehicle. Halo for Xbox One is coming out later this year and more will be shown in the upcoming months. Stay tuned here at RGN in our dedicated Halo and Xbox ONE categories.

The following footage has been leaked from a vetted source as a cut-scene from Halo on Xbox ONE featuring the forerunner symbol at the end. Cortana is also featured in the footage. Be sure to remember this game is scheduled for 2014 on Microsoft’s next-generation game console Xbox ONE and is titled “Halo” not “Halo 5” as it is sometimes referred to by developer 343 Industries and their massive Halo fan-base.
What does it all mean?
That Cortana is still alive or revived and that this scene might be after what ever causes Master Chief to lose his chest piece and get the huge scratch on his helm. It looks like some type of dark forerunner room with obvious forerunner colors, in blue and red plus the fact Cortana is blue also symbolizes this.
