The website is a hoax. The background has been ripped off from a website called KnollGrass.com. It doesn’t come as too much of a surprise due to the site not linking back to anything officially related to Microsoft or 343 Industries.
ORIGINAL STORY FOLLOWS:
A new Halo related announcement could be on the way as an Xbox One related website titled “He Returns” is counting down to something.
The website, under the domain name Dawnof2014.com looks to be teasing a Halo announcement of some kind, most likely a trailer. When loading the website you’ll see a small black and white silouhette of the Master Chief’s helmet. If that isn’t evidence enough, the backdrop to the website features a desert similar to what we saw in the game’s E3 reveal trailer earlier this year.
One thing to bear in mind however is that there is no direct link to either Microsoft or 343 Industries. The website features some social networking links at the bottom which don’t redirect anywhere so there’s a chance this website could be a hoax much like the Survivor2099 teaser from earlier this month.
So what is this website counting down to? Perhaps a trailer and/or a release date as well as an official title? Is it even real? We’ll find out tomorrow.
