Microsoft Snaps Up Halo5.com And Halo9.com

Fusible, the trusted source for great tech news with a team who sleuth out stories based on research of domain acquisitions, domain sales, company trademark filings and domain disputes – has discovered Microsoft’s recent acquisition of not one, but two new Halo domain names.

According to changes in Whois records, Microsoft has now acquired Halo5.com as well as Halo9.com from their previous owners using Name Rally, who helped Microsoft grab AnswerDesk.com in the past. Whilst Halo 5 is already a confirmed title when it was previously announced Halo 4 would be the start of a new trilogy, the purchase of Halo9.com is likely to be for brand protection only.

The list of Halo[x].com domains under Microsoft’s belt now stand at Halo2, Halo3, Halo4, Halo5, Halo9 and finally Halo10.com. We previously reported that Halo 5 is currently in development for next-gen systems, but a recent job posting hints it will be available on multiple devices – assumed to be current-gen and next-gen when the game releases.
