Maybe MS has the impression Halo:MCC and Halo 5 is good enough for the X1X? Both got patches for the hardware and now best way to experience those games.

Frankly, I don't mind if we don't get another major Halo game until Infinite. But holy fuck, atleast make a ODST/Reach type of side story with the Halo 5 engine. The gameplay is great, they should just take another jab at a campaign and make it feel more like previous Halo games.

I wouldn't be against the idea of an ODST/Reach styled game, anything at this point would be better than nothing I would imagine... Only reason I ever purchased an Xbox to start with 15+ years ago was for Halo and Fable.

And despite MCC and Halo 5 having Xbox One X patches... They still clearly look like an Xbox One game on the Xbox One X.

I want something that will really really push the console... Because whilst it is all well and good to have the "Most powerful console ever". - It's another thing to actually leverage that capability to it's fullest extent.

All games this gen look like they were made for base consoles because they essentially were. The mid gen upgrades just provide increased resolution, maybe tweaks to some other settings. X1X for the most part just shrinks the gap between the visual fidelity of a standard X1 with a higher end gaming PC.

Now its worth considering Halo 5 looks pretty good for a locked 60 fps game, but it never had the most impressive visuals. I mean Star Wars BF2 and Battlefield games look better. So frankly, the problem isn't the game was built for X1, it just wasn't a great looking game to begin with.

A new Halo game doesn't necessarily have to be built for the X1X first to look better, they just need to make a better looking game. There is a huge visual disparity between Halo 3, Reach and Halo 4 in the same generation.

Its also worth noting X1X games could have better graphics settings at the cost of resolution. Rise of the Tomb Raider for example has an option for improved settings over resolution. They should have offered that on Halo 5 for X1X, even better shadows, draw distance and LOD at the cost of resolution.
