[UPDATE] Tesco product page suggests Microsoft making new Halo for Xbox 360 this year; company says listing “not indicative of a Halo product launch.”

[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, a Microsoft representative told GameSpot that the Tesco product listing is “not indicative of a Halo product launch.”

“This listing is not indicative of a Halo product launch,” the representative said. “We have no news to share of future Halo titles.”

The original story follows below

Not only has United Kingdom retailer Tesco revealed Call of Duty: Ghosts today, but the shop has outed (via Videogamer) a product currently listed as “Upcoming Halo.”

The listing includes generic Xbox 360 box art and a 2013 release date. A Microsoft representative was not immediately available to comment.

Microsoft has previously confirmed Halo 5 and Halo 6, as part of the Reclaimer Trilogy. The most recent entry in the science-fiction shooter series was November’s Halo 4.

A new Halo game has come to market every year since 2009, those being Halo 3: ODST (2009), Halo: Reach (2010), Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary (2011), and Halo 4 (2012).

Microsoft is openly hiring for the future of the Halo brand, which may include games for the company’s rumored next-generation platform, believed to be announced next month. The Halo team is seeking, among other developers, a person with MMO experience.
