I personally don't think Halo5 will be 100% ready by launch. I feel Microsoft will rush it out to take advantage of the holiday season. I hope I am wrong but the development cycle just seems too short for a mainline next-gen Halo game considering Halo 4 only came out in 2012... 3 year cycle.... This isn't like Halo 1 and2 where it was on the same console or Halo 3 and ODST...

You're talking about a 300 dev strong team that have engineers that have worked on the console, devs (especially bosses) that have been working on Halo since CE, they released a Beta a year out running butter "smoov". Snags always happen but I beliebe 343i is the best suited dev team to work on X1.


Time will tell.

Not sure what you're getting at. Its the same situation as Halo 2 to Halo 3. 3 years and a new console.


Valid point, I do think games ten years ago were a bit simpler and didn't take quite as long as nowadays though. What do you think?


I think 3 years is enough time to make a AAA game focused on 1 machine. I played the beta 4 months ago and it plays phenomenally.

I agree with you there. However, I think the only thing limiting the devs is the knowledge of the tools and resources around them, which was the same dilema they confronted back then. And now they're bigger teams as well.



Do you have fun playing a console different than mine?

DON'T!!!

I hope I'm wrong. It doesn't benefit me in anyway if Halo5 comes out rushed.

You're not giving very good reasons for your skepticism.

Because it is just my intuition. I'm not trying to convince anyone. Like I said before I hope I am wrong. I don't benefit in anyway if it comes out rushed/buggy. Halo:MCC certainly did not raise my confidence but that was supposedly another team.



Even he admits that halo mcc was forced and shoehorned into the xbox1.

So the MCC is now not a very good reason for skepticism anymore? Well good to see blunders like this are so easily forgotten.

If you read the article then you'd know the answer to that question.



Its a shame that Halo:MCC being a mess at launch has completely overshadowed it becoming arguably the best software on 8th gen consoles.
