Has a new domain teased an upcoming Halo announcement? Quick answer: no.
Several Internet users came across dawnof2014.com this weekend, which appears to be related to Halo and Halo 5.
The domain features a countdown clock that is, at the time of writing, under the 24-hour mark, along with the Xbox One logo and a page banner that reads, “He returns…exclusively on Xbox One!”
With a quick whois.net search, we were quick to notice that the website was just created this past Friday and was registered in Panama. Both Microsoft and 343 Industries are located in the state of Washington, so it’s highly improbable they made the site.
In addition, late Sunday night, 343 Industries community manager Jessica Shea dismissed the website with a tweet that simply reads, “We don’t comment on things unrelated to Halo. Sorry.”
So, sorry folks, it doesn’t appear that a new Halo announcement is coming soon…or at least by way of dawnof2014.com.
