Halo franchise director, Frank O'Connor, is at it again with more talks of Halo 5, the next title in the new trilogy. He first mentioned Halo 5 in an interview with the Seattle Times back in October, but it seems this man is aching to tell all.

"A lot of people at 343 are already prototyping ideas and software and art for future Halo products," averred O'Connor.

Apparently, O'Connor wasn't not allowed to say more, but with the way he has been dropping things about Halo 5 of late, it would not come as a surprise if he manages to reveal more about the title long before the game is scheduled for an official announcement.

He went on to say that he's excited about Halo 5, and that work on the game had begun long before Halo 4 was launched. If that is the case, then it is highly likely that Halo 5 could up for releasing on the Xbox 720 in 2014 after the console's rumored 2013 launch window.

For those who would love for 343 Industries to develop a Spartan Ops season 2 for Halo 4, it may or maynot happen. The developer is looking into how well the first season does before making a decision on the matter.

"We got such great responses from [live-action web series] Forward Unto Dawn and Spartan Ops that we're pretty happy with it and we're learning a lot of really interesting stuff for the future," said O'Connor.

What he means by interesting stuff for the future could mean anything; however, if there is one thing Halo fans want apart from another game is a movie. With the success of 'Forward Unto Dawn,' it has been proven that the Halo series is capable of being successful on the big screen if given the chance and with the perfect director taking charge.
