It was recently discovered that Microsoft has registered a number of similar domains that point to a possible E3 announcement for a new game in the Halo universe.
Recently discovered by Fusible, the handful of domains all share a similar feature, they point towards “Halo Spartan Assault”.
With E3 2013 being “all about games”, according to Microsoft, it would make sense that their biggest franchise would make an appearance at their E3 press conference at the very least.
Outside of the first person shooters from Bungie and 343 Industries, there are other cards that Microsoft could possibly play with these domain name registrations. It could very well be part of the original programming that Microsoft teased at their Xbox One reveal, they could be heading back to give fans a follow up to Halo Wars, or it could be something entirely different.
We’ll have to wait and see to find out. E3 is just a week away, with Microsoft’s press conference kicking off the festivities on June 10th.
