In a new TV spot that aired during The Walking Dead, Microsoft revealed October 27, 2015 as the release date for Halo 5: Guardians.
The live-action TV ad finds Spartan Locke walking through a war torn environment, hunting for Master Chief who lies wounded not too far away under a statue of himself. Locke blames Chief for all the destruction with the ad ending as Locke aims a pistol at the franchise hero. No gameplay was shown in the TV spot.
