We talk with Halo Wars 2 with Dan Ayoub, Studio Head of Strategy Games at 343 Industries, and David Nicholson, Executive Producer at Creative Assembly.
He says the team works well together and he can't wait to see what they come up with next. 343 and CA have good synergy that already shows in Halo Wars 2, but I'm interested in seeing what they may come up with next!
What I want to see is creative assembly take over Halo for a little while once the master chief saga is over and let 343 create a new ip. It would be nice to see CA create a halo RPG or maybe something comparable to RB6 like what halo odst was going for.
I could see that happening. TBH, I don't know if 343 is even working on Halo 6 for this year. I know it's expected that they are because MS ping pongs between Gears and Halo all the time, but I have a weird feeling that 343 are working on a new IP.
IMO, it would be a unique opportunity for 343 to try some new ideas they couldn't afford to experiment with within the Halo universe. ID used Rage to do that, avoiding having to experiment with Doom when trying to create an open world game.
