Notice how I am saying games? Right now, the next iteration of Halo may only be a single player game and if all goes according to plan, could arrive, at the earliest, towards the end of 2019. The multiplayer aspect of this game is not expected to arrive until after the single player ships which pegs a 2020 release timeframe.
I was a little skeptical on this information until I saw that they were building an entirely new engine for the platform. Knowing this, the staggered release makes a lot more sense as it’s easier to build a single player game than a multiplayer shooter; thus, the single player arrives, they look for potential issues, then release the multiplayer portion of the game.
Here’s a bit of fun speculation, we also know that Microsoft is working on a follow-up to the Xbox One X console and my sources are saying that it is codenamed Scarlet. In the past, Microsoft has used Halo games to show-off new hardware, I wonder if the release of the next-gen Halo game will align to the release of the updated hardware with the new Xbox showing up in the more likely 2020 timeframe.
Fuck sake 343, stop. Just release a complete Halo game with both a good SP/MP. Awful Idea, I hope they go back on this and just delay it fully into 2020, 343 always finds a way to screws things upLast edited by Ryuu96 - on 11 June 2018
