The recent reveal that Microsoft is upgrading Halo: The Master Chief Collection for next-gen has had fans very excited,

The optimisation upgrade will allow the compilation of games to run up to 4K with 120FPS.


There's no doubt the decision for these upgrades was made in light of Halo Infinite's delay until 2021.

Some fans have been wondering if Halo 5: Guardians will also be receiving an upgrade for next-gen.

Today, Microsoft finally answered the question.

Halo 5 Will Not Be Getting A Next-Gen Upgrade

Microsoft has confirmed Halo 5:Guardians will not be receiving an upgrade for the Xbox Series X/S.


While this may be a disappointment for some fans, the game will have faster loading times and higher resolution on the upgraded machines.

Check out Microsoft's statement below:

"While Halo 5 is not getting the same optimizations for Xbox Series X and Series S as MCC, owners of the next-gen hardware are still going to see the benefits of faster load times and consistently higher resolution gameplay. We're excited for you all to jump on and give it a go with that extra power!"

Although this isn't the news a lot of Halo 5 fans wanted to hear, at least the next-consoles will boost the game's performance.


Who knows, in a few more years Microsoft may opt to give Halo 5 a next-gen makeover.

For now, all we can do is keep our fingers crossed and enjoy the Master Cheif Collection's exciting upgrade.
