The only way this would happen is if Microsoft wanted to push the release date to compete with the other platforms in 2016, but when you have the option of:

1) Delaying launch and pissing off fans, for what might turn out to be a detrimental choice

or

2) Capitalizing on the situation and ending the year with positive PR and likely, the lions share of sales in the US which pass on positive pr into the next quarter.

Well, which would you do?

The fact that UC4 and Zelda U were delayed does not increase the likelyhood of the same happening to Halo. It's gonna release this year unless it absolutely can't.



No, I think it's going to make it's 2015 release date.



We all know Sony domination is a real thing and there is nothing Microsoft or Nintendo can do about it....

No way is Halo 5 getting delayed. Microsoft showed with MCC that they would rather stick to the schedule and ship a broken game rather than delay it to fix it properly. XBox only sells during the holidays in the US, and to not have Halo would spell disaster for them.
I fully expect Halo to make the scheduled release, and then to receive constant fixes to finally bring it to a playabke state sometime in the mid-2016.

Exactly what makes you so sure Halo 5 will be broken? Its the only one out of the 3 games that the public has been able to play.

MCC was broken, and 6 months later we are still reading about fixes being tested to bring the game to the state it should have been at the start. So the confidence in the ability of 343i is not really booming, it is obvious that they have a very tight schedule imposed by MS that greatly exceeds their skill level.

1. Its been 4 months.

2. Do you know the reason MCC was broken or do you seriously think 343i was the sole reason for it?

3. MCC didn't have a beta. Halo 5 did. 3 months ago.



I think people are reading the question as:

Do you want halo 5 to be delayed?

-Please yes

-No

-see results.



I'm not really here!

I never understood the reasoning that WiiU has the best exclusive line ups. Maybe for a Nintendo style gamer.

For an ecletic Western gamer, WiiU doesn't really offer much variety.

For example, I like FPS, TPS/A, Arcade and Sim Racing games, Soccer sims and Platformers. I would be missing a lot if I had chosen WiiU.

sure you would miss alot, thats why you should have a wiiu and a pc... there is just no alternative to pc if you like fps or deeply complex sims.

But even in that scenario the Wii U is likely gonna collect a lot of dust.

The average fan of PC games probably has little interest in what Nintendo does. The PC audience is more interested in what MS and Sony does.

MS does nothing interresting, they have fps and tps, both allmost unplayable and not so great if compared to other fps/tps

 

and sony has ND, the rest of sonys studios is making "games" with little to no/bad game play and worse writting than transformers...

BUT, the ps4 is interresting for exclusive 3rd party games.

 

wiiu is a social console, you sit down, drink beer and play MK or smash. 



Probably not. Halo games have been remarkably good about coming out on time. Once a release window has been announced, it hasn't been pushed back. 343i has probably been developing this game since Halo 4 was released (the first "Durango" dev kits were already out by time H4 was released), and 3 years has been the normal development time (343i started development on H4 in 2009, before Bungie was even finished with Reach). It would honestly surprise me if Halo 5 got pushed back to 2016. Then again, there have been quite a few surprising (and not so surprising) delays this gen, so it's still possible, however unlikely.
