Halo 5 Beta, Halo Master Chief Collection and a digital short produced by Ridley Scott, entitled Nightfall, were all announced this past week at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles. During the expo, TIME got the insider scoop from 343 Industries' Frank O’Connor, who is the Franchise Development Director for Halo.
"2014 is the anniversary of the original launch of Halo 2...We had this discussion. We said, 'Wouldn't it be nice if we had all the games in the Master Chief story on one console,'" O'Connor told TIME.
The Halo Master Chief Collection will be released on November 11, while Halo 5 will be released in late 2015. Watch the video above the insider scoop.
