Microsoft says it's optimistic about future of the Halo franchise post-Bungie, and praised the "wave of Halo innovation" being brought in by new studio 343 Industries.
343 has some pretty big shoes to fill.
No surprise here first it got the name and the brand and second it got the fan base and third (and the most important one) it got MS deep pockets to spend on alot (and i mean ALOT) of ads and alot of goody bags to reviewers but im afraid that halo is the next COD its not that far away form that anyway
will care about Bungie not making Halo anymore. The rest of the populace could care less who makes Halo as long as it is.....well Halo.
So true. But what's sad is MS does not take the hardcore into consideration for anything. I fear MS will do to HALO what they did to RARE. Milk it, destroy everything about it, turn it in Kinect shovelware, then kill it off. I really see it happening and thst really bothers me.
note microsoft did not kill rare, rare was dead long before that
RARE died when Nintendo sold them. So I guess Nintendo is also to blame
Bungie or not it will still sell A LOT That's why their so confident
That MS will sacrifice the spirit of Halo for a quick cash-in using a different studio.
So what your saying is that MS should not make anymore Halo because Bungie left them -_-
I'm not so confident in Microsoft/343 on Halo, because the last one they made was Halo Wars and everyone that didn't read up on it got it. After putting in the 360, most people took the game back because it wasn't Halo (It wasn't FPS/TPS) and they were mad. I like RTS's but I feel Halo shouldn't be one.
343 Industries didn't make Halo Wars, Ensemble did. I'm confident that 343i will make a good Halo game, they seem very committed and Halo Anniversary looks promising. I think 343i can be a breath of fresh air for the franchise.
Halo War was made by ensemble Studios 343 is a brand new studio
I love Halo Wars One of my fav games this gen and I could easily play it for 8hrs straight
Get ur facts right before you comment...
Wow I say one thing and everyone gets their panties all in a bunch. http://www.youtube.com/watc... God, people just need to lay off and deal with it.
343 will bring innovation to the series. Maybe introduce some new enemies, vehicles, weapons.... Halo 1-3 felt the same, Reach had some innovation. Hopefully 343 will take what worked with Reach and incorporate their own ideas.
You have my trust 343 industries
i wonder how they'll use kinect
Maybe voice commands.
no worries shooters will sell on xbox even DNF
PS3 has Killzone and Resistance, SOCOM, in addition to MW3, COD, BFBC.....
This relates to...?
There are shooters which sell on PS3 also, it ties into his "shooters will sell on xbox" comment. Xbox isn't the only console with shooters.
They sell but not as well.
It's funny that most of you don't realize that 343 Industries is partly made up of ex-Bungie employees including the main guy Frank O'Connor. They also have Corrine Yu and Sotaro Tojima. If you don't know those names, look them up. As well as Ray Almaden, former Sony Guerrilla Games designer.
halo has a name for itself already and microsoft knows that people will buy anything that says halo. i dnt think the game will suffer without bungie too much IMO all halo games look the same i had a used 360 briefly for about 5 months before it rrod on me and i played the crap out of halo 3 odst online very addictive multiplayer i must say
