It’s finally happening!

Today marks the official launch of Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One. It’s crazy to think that after three years of development, Halo fans all around the world are jumping in to play our game.

It’s hard to put into words what I’m feeling right now. I am so proud of the work our team has done and of the game we’ve built together. As I come into work each day, I’m continually humbled by the passion and talent on display throughout this studio. Everyone here cares so deeply about making a great game for you, the fans. While the launch of Halo 5: Guardians is a big milestone for both our team and the Halo community, in many ways it represents the beginning of our next journey together. We look forward to supporting the game with the introduction of new content and experiences for many months to come.

On behalf of everyone on the Halo 5: Guardians team, I want to say thank you to our fans for all your support. We hope you love playing our game as much as we have loved making it for you.

<3 Josh

P.S. Also looking forward to seeing which players will be the first to score a goal in Meridian Station. ;)
