Halo 5 4K Update Confirmed For Xbox One X

343 Industries revealed that the game will get an update later this year and it'll make full use of the new Xbox by showcasing the game in "true 4K".

Shortly after the announce of the Xbox One X, many Halo fans were quick to note that Halo 5: Guardians was conspicuously absent from the list of games being given the 4K treatment. The games that will be soon be playable on Xbox One include Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4. Although it is not receiving a full-blown remaster or remake, 343 Industries is introducing a Halo 3 Anniversary Throwback playlist in Halo 5. Considering Halo 5 was one of the best looking game on the Xbox One, it will be interesting to see how the developers transition to the Xbox One X. Halo 5 is developed by 343 Industries and published by Microsoft.
