And would be a big "f*** you" to the fans to just leave the story unfinished to reboot the franchise.

Don't mean to speak for all Halo fans but as a fan of the series since December 1, 2001 (when I got my original Xbox) I can say that Halo 5 itself was the biggest "f*** you" I could've been given as a fan. Again, I can't speak for everyone who is a fan of the franchise but it was just not where I wanted the series to go in any way (story or gameplay or multiplayer). 

It wouldn't make sense to retcon what they built up already story wise by rebooting the franchise and never finishing the arc, but I don't think what they do with the arc to close it out will make people happy either. 

On the bright side, it has made the long wait for another FPS Halo game so much more bearable considering how little I care now.

The Xbox brand is so laughable at this point. Not sure what Microsoft gonna do when the PS5 comes out and takes 80% of the marketshare between them.

They wont. As a dedicated Halo fan myself I can safely say they wont. They wont destroy the trilogy over 1 average Halo game. There were rumours going around about two Halo games being developed, one being a Reach styled game while the other is Halo 6. Halo Wars I believed is dead however there were talks about a Halo Wars 3 game including Space Combat missions.

So where are the exclusives

Did you miss the OP? I counted 8, there's a difference between having none and being disappointed in what's offered.

Interesting what 8? With no release info on any of them I can't get the number to 8.

Halo/Forza make obvious sense. But what about the other 6?



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

I know they won't. Really the only point of discussion is what order the two games will release in. If the spin-off comes out first it becomes a question of whether it is totally unrelated to the Forerunner arc or if it ties together 5 and 6. And the answer to that will potentially dictate what kind of game it is (classic Halo or enhanced mobility). 

And it's also unfortunate that Halo Wars 2 panned out the way it did sales wise. I'm still planning on getting it eventually and I know I'll enjoy it. They seem to have done a great job establishing the Banished as a threat and many are hoping they play a big role in Halo 6. But the worry becomes balancing that with the Created threat and potentially the Flood returning (as well as rumours of the Didact being behind the scenes of Cortana's corruption in the Domain). It just seems like way too much to tie together in one game.

Yes I agree they are probably between the rock and the hard place... but it could be possible that without retconning or rebooting to bring the trilogy to a good conclusion.

Should be obvious, the MS ips/studios

Halo

Horizon 4

Perfect Dark

Banjo

Ori

Crackdown

Kart racer

Screamride

So by exclusive you meant "not on ps4 or switch".   I expect several of those to even release on steam.

Ok thanks.

I'm with you tads. 

In many ways 5 is the worst of the series, even if it improved drastically the multiplayer experience in 4. I still consider Halo the best FPS franchise of all time, but that's very much in spite of 343's work on the series.

A new Halo used to be an event. Now it's a blip on the radar.

All that said, you're right: they absolutely cannot bail on this Reclaimer trilogy mid-stream. It would destroy what goodwill the series has left. 



I believe it, especially with that "Exclusive! World premiere!" voice booming at the start of every trailer. I've seen MS conferences back then, and they pride themselves announcing games first than Sony with exclusivity deals.
