Despite the fact that it will almost certainly be among the biggest game releases of 2015, we still don’t know when exactly Halo 5: Guardians will be arriving.
Some fans think they know the answer though. An official trailer for a Halo 5 behind-the-scenes documentary series was released almost three months ago in December 2014. It’s taken all this time, but someone has discovered a tiny easter egg that might point towards the game’s release date.

It’s going to be a huge holiday season for shooter fans, that’s for sure.
