After Bungie has left Halo, Microsoft created its own studio dedicated to the game, 343 Industries. Bungie virtually alone popularized the FPS for consoles, with the first Halo Master Chief who brought us. To close your journey they made a prequel to Halo, Reach, that was essentially the end point of Bungie in the Halo universe. But Halo and Master Chief would not stay dormant for long. They could not. Microsoft was holding a real blockbuster, a giant of billions of dollars and would not leave. Halo 4 is the first part of a new sequence, the beginning of a new trilogy. Has the ability to Halo 343?
Rather than reinvent the series in his image, 343 Halo 4 treated carefully, trying to keep as much of his magic as he could. The fans always guarantee instead of a rallying cry that could throw it all away. Do not change a thing could also end in failure at 343 so I knew what the secret was to try to find a balance between what is kept and what was about to change.
