VG247: Bungie has said that while Halo: Reach is its last game in the series for the foreseeable future, it may consider doing another one "down the line".
They still haven't finished the story with masterchief yet so I suspect in 10 years or so, they might return to his story where he ended up floating in space with cortana among a mysterious planet.
Really are bungie even in a position to say this cause i'm sure after reach everythink halo will belong to 343
I would imagine that if MS went to bungie with a blank check and said "develop a next gen halo" for our next system, it'd be hard to turn down.
This is kinda like Hideo Kojima saying he's going to quit the gaming industry every second, it's not going to happen! Bungie will do another Halo next gen, which starts in a few years.
I'll bet it's alot sooner than that. I say less than 5 years.
Didn't somebody from Bungie just try to embarrass HipHopGamer for saying that Bungie was tired of Halo? Now we have someone from Bungie saying that they won't do another Halo game for TEN YEARS. For a Microsoft platform that's 2 generations. They're going to skip the Xbox 3(720) completely. According to Bungie themselves, they won't do another Halo game until late in the lifespan of the 4th Xbox. Sounds like the HipHopGamer was right. You don't skip out on a cash cow like Halo for 10 years if you aren't tired of it.
This doesn't confirm anything, Bungie has enevr stated they were tired of making Halo games. However they do want to try out a new IP and have been trying to do so since 2002.
yea right, i remember them saying that about halo 2 and 3.
Halo 2 ended at a cliffhanger so Halo 3 was inevitable. They also stated that Halo 3 was merely the end of of a story arc.
This is a wise move if it happens. However, it could end up going both ways. 1. The if MS doesn't play it's cards right, 343 Industries could end up further enfuriating fans and non-fans alike, to the point that even if there was a 10 year gap between Bungie's Halos, it wouldn't sell near like anything of the past Halos. 2. A decade of Halo's absense from the market could mean that another Killer IP would've taken over the market, making Halo a Cult/Niche title. Bungie has to tread carefully on this issue. But no doubt, they'll be watching 343 Industries and the Industry's reaction to it's unavoidable Halo offering/s VERY closely in the next few years.
lets be honest - the hardcore halo fans are the ones that made Halo 3 sell over 11 million copies, not just regular joe-blow-average-gamer. they probably account for 10% of its sales. people that like halo know that Bungie are the ones who make Halo, and if Bungie jumped back into the Halo ring in 10 years time, those people wouldnt have just forgotten who Bungie are. they would go absolutely gangbusters over a new Bungie developed Halo game. and to even suggest that Halo could be a niche game......lol. thats like saying the next Call of Duty game might be an indie title that only sells 5000 copies.
I'm pretty sure Bungie and Halo will be relevant in 10 years. Hell, Halo: Combat Evolved came out in 2001, that's almost 10 years.
Well after watchin this http://www.youtube.com/watc... i dont think ANY-1 will b makin games (or anythin 4 that matter) in 10 years time, do it now whilst u still can
Halo is a Golden Goose but I thing Bungie have the correct approach, why strangle the damm thing when you can wait and just reap the benefits when you need too
Reach will be Bungie's last halo, however, Halo 4 (developed by MS game studios) will be a launch title for the 720 in fall 2011. Can't wait
Yeah uhm wheres your source? On topic wise move with Bungie,make Halo Reach the best it can possibly be day one purchase for me.
10 years seems a bit much... wouldn't 3 or 4 make more sense? How many people are really going to wait 10 years for Halo 4? I'll be 30 at that point... jesus.
Listen if you people think that this is it for the series, you are mistaken. Bungie is a business and just like all businesses they want your cash. This is why i firmly believe you will see a Halo 5,6,7,8,9,10...........The same goes for Gears and MGS. Kratos will return as well, I guarantee you.
And it will be still sub hd
yep theres noway ms would wait ten years for another halo hlao is only thing that sells about 70% of 360's. the xbox brand would died years ago without halo.
Halo sells about 70% of xbox's?? But yet Halo 3 only sold 10 Mil and the xbox install base is 40 Mil (rounded up) so thats like 1/4 of xbox owners, own Halo, and probably 3/4 of those already had an xbox before Halo came out on 360. Nice math :P Jokes!!!
the series deserves a break
I cant' wait to see what other projects Bungie has cooking after Reach. A good break from Halo will do the franchise good.
HALO 4 will be M$ release title for the next XBOX! And if some of you have the skills join the boat at the link http://www.microsoft-career...
I would be thirty too I doubt it.
the hole halo thing will be well played out by ten years,prob take them to revive it haha
