343′s ‘Halo’ Trilogy No Longer Just A Trilogy, Here’s What That Means

FleshEatingZipper writes: GameSpot UK is reporting that 343 Industries’ post-Bungie Halo trilogy – or Reclaimer story – is no longer confined to just Halo 4, 5 and 6, but tons of games beyond that. This explains a lot regarding why their tease during the Microsoft conference was number- and subtitle-less. But what does it really mean? Let’s dig in a little deeper. (Halo 4, Xbox One)

I just hope this ain't gonna be like Star Wars.

I love Halo, but it all depends on how they do it, and how manage to keep up with the times - against next-gen titles. I'm only continuing to buy Halo games on a per game basis. My nostalgia for games will probably always have me initially give it consideration though - for sure.
(My love for *anything* Star Wars is much, much stronger)

Nowhere near as good as Star Wars....and I'm not even a star wars fan boy.

Halo 2 was the most fun to play so far.

Why ?

It had the most maps. They gave us like 25 different maps.

And 80% were really good.

Damn this is good news for me. I thought I'd only get two more games with master chief in It.

Microsoft ditching master chief is like Nintendo ditching Mario.
Mr_Nuts  +   797d ago
Whatever way you look at it the one coming out next year is basicaly Halo 5

<Small Spoilers>

It has Master Chief
It appears to take place post Halo 4
It looks like he's looking for Cortana
The thing which came out of the ground could be the Didact or something that belongs to him

I could go on but the point is it's Halo 5

What i dont understand is why the hell does MC need that cloak? He has a freaking armor with shields.
loulou  +   797d ago
perhaps it was just for the teaser?????????????
Mystogan  +   796d ago
His helmet looked damaged. Maybe his armor was too and he can't have sand in his armor.
ThanatosDMC  +   796d ago
It'd be cool to see some battle damage but i refuse to see the person inside or even any human skin. It'll destroy the character.

Just more games. There is already a Windows 8 and mobile Halo game coming out. T
GdaTyler  +   797d ago
I just hope they keep the experiences fresh. If it becomes like COD or Assassin's Creed it's going to be a problem.

I love Halo Bring it on.

I am by no means a Halo fanatic however I do own Halo 1, 2, 3 and 4. That being said- The last Halo is atrocious. I believe the general online community has reflected that the series is dying/dead.

The online play is very laggy, Halo 3 had online players for years after the initial release, I am not aware of the exact numbers for 4, however, I'm sure they dont come anywhere near the previous installments.

Not going to be going out of my way to buy a ONE just for this exclusive.

-1st post so take it easy lol

Halo 4 still has quite a lot of players, I usually just need to wait a minute or two to get in game. What I really liked about Halo 4 though was 343i's support for the game post release with numerous updates and quite a few really nice content additions. Forge Island (free) was a really nice surprise especially with the added forge items like the green screen. The latest update adds mini Spartans in action sack which was also something I wasn't expecting. If they have the same commitment with Halo 5 I will be very pleased.
mxrider2199  +   797d ago
all of the content they added on shoulda came with the game already it was all content on previous halos nothing new
mcgrottys  +   796d ago
@ mxrider

not exactly, sure halo reach had forge island but halo 4 replaced that with 3 separate and completely different maps, forge Island might have brought back the large scale of forge world but it also had the flat lands like sandbox and foundry allowing a blank canvas to use. The mini Spartans were not in previous halo's as well as the green screen.

The only area I think they lacked on with content was by getting rid of the chopper and UNSC air units but those are just small things.
Virus201  +   797d ago
Halo 4's multiplayer isn't laggy at all. You might want to contact your ISP about that. I've never heard people say it's laggy (you're the first)

As for the community, they're there, but your can't compare them to those from Halo 2 and Halo 3 because most gamers now play COD. The same can be said about any other multiplayer game on consoles. You can't name another console game (from PS3 or Xbox) that actually has a huge community. Every game that has multiplayer will suffer because the masses choose to play COD.
mxrider2199  +   797d ago
if you play splitscreen on certain levels its guaranteed to lag
Virus201  +   797d ago
@mxrider2199 What does playing splitscreen have to do with online multiplayer?
Gaming4Ever  +   797d ago
In other words: we're going to milk the shit out of it because it sells the xbone.
Nuggie  +   797d ago
I'm Halo-ed out at this point Microsoft! Make Halo 6 the last game and everyone will be happy. Stop relying on the green spartan to sell consoles because I've already reserved my PS4 and seeing Halo 5 didn't make me cancel my preorder. If I want to play Halo, I'll just bring my 360 out of my closet.
Truehellfire  +   797d ago
The absolute main reason I bought an Xbox over a PS2 was because of Halo. I had a blast the original trilogy and Reach, but geez, I think they need to tone it down a notch. Even if I do get an Xbone, I don't plan on getting Halo 5.
mxrider2199  +   797d ago
you liked reach?? one of the few halo fans that i heard of that likes reach i hated reach and halo 2was my thing and halo 3
turgore  +   797d ago
two more games and it would be more than enough. finish halo while it is still good, or else they are beating a dead horse.
plaZeHD  +   797d ago
I feel like Halo is something you want to watch than play. I just can't enjoy myself playing the Halo games. I have Halo 4 and Reach. And I enjoyed neither.
mxrider2199  +   797d ago
those are 2 of the worst of the installments anything other than 1 2 or 3 suck
SaffronCurse  +   797d ago
Halo Reach was the Decline of the series. I still couldn't bear to finish the Halo 4 campaign. I found it to be extremely bland and uninteresting.
LAWSON72  +   797d ago
It means yearly release and probably a chapter type of thing, because apparently MS wants to do that with all their games KI and QuantumBreak both are doing something similar. I am done with MS, hello PS4 and maybe Wii u
Game4life  +   797d ago
I mainly started playing around 3. I don't particilarly care if the make it a saga or not. I just want the best possible forge we can get. thats the only thing i really liked in halo since 3. i loved building stuff but the changes in 4 made it a little harder for me to design maps weirdly enough due to the new gameplay mechanics
