I’m sure many of you have already seen it, but why not take another look – here is the first official piece of concept art for Halo 5/Halo Xbox One as done by their newly promoted Senior Art Director, Nicolas “Sparth” Bouvier:
The original posting of this piece was on Waypoint, and Josh Holmes described it as, “an early exploration of a new location that features prominently in a little game project we’re tinkering with….”
Where is it? Have we been there before? A rebuilt world after the war?
The setting looks very Skyline to me; I’m not saying that’s where it’s at, just that it looks similar to that map located on the colony world of Cascade.
And what’s the curved structure towards the bottom-right that looks a little Covenant-ish? A jointly governed world perhaps, or at least a station where both sides have a presence?
Crazy to think about what’s to come … !

Looks good, I like the fact that this new art director is keeping a consistent tone with the new saga. Any guesses where this is?
Currently, no. I feel like the biggest clue to that has the least detail – what’s the huge, dark planet/moon in the sky?
