Despite a public tweet from a new 343 Industries employee with a countdown clock in the background, gamers will have to wait a bit longer than November 10 for the release of Halo 5: Guardians. "The recent rumors regarding the release date of Halo 5: Guardians are false," a Microsoft spokesperson recently said.

It shouldn't be too surprising to hear the Nov. 10 date is wrong, as the official beta - running at 1080p/60fps - won't even be available until December.

Now that Microsoft cleared up the issue, it's still unknown what the countdown clock in the background is being used for.
