Players will get their hands on a Halo game in one form or another sometime this year, according to Microsoft’s senior PR manager for Halo and Forza Motorsport.
Rest assured your next Halo journey WILL begin in 2014. #staycalm

Semsey’s tweet comes in response to a post on the Xbox Wire detailing what’s in store this year for Xbox One owners. According to Semsey, Halo on Xbox One was not listed because 343 has yet to settle on an official title.
Granted, Semsey’s tweet is more than a little vague. He could be referring to Halo 5, he could be referring to the Halo game teased at E3 2013—which may be Halo 5 or a separate Halo entry—or he could be referring to Spartan Ops Season Two (although speculation right now is that Season Two would be attached to Halo Xbox One debut).
Semsey could also be talking about another spinoff game in the same vein as the top-down shooter Spartan Assault. Not impossible, though the least likely scenario. The only Halo project on public radar right now is the Xbox One title.
Either way you slice it, something Halo-related is set to arrive this year, presumably in the fall.
