Biggest exclusive of the year! Can't wait for the E3 gameplay reveal.

I really hope we get two custom Halo 5 for the chief and the other for Agent Locke.

Love the chief but Lock armor and color sceme is looking pretty sweet.

I'm very intrigued on how they plan on giving Halo 5 the most post-launch support of any Halo game. Halo 3 was about 3 years of support so lets hope 343 can match that type of support. E3 is going to be insane for Halo 5.

Man I wish they'd go back to a more simple playlist selection like Halo2s...

Rumble Pit
Team Slayer
Team Objective
Double Team
Big Team Battle

And get rid of voting, it just lengthens the time it to get into matches... And allows people to run away from maps/game types they aren't good at, instead of forcing them to "git gud"

Each game type doesn't need its own playlist... Just sprinkle the more novel game types into the general playlists... The more the community voices their affections for a particular game type, just up the frequency it shows up.

Halo 5 just might be the best Halo yet. This article isn't really big news or nothing but it got me hyped anyway. The power of Halo, never duplicated and can't be imitated, Best FPS ever.

Ironic that you say that, yet Halo has been done by different people (of course lots of Bungie staff stayed for 343 but still)

Frank O'Conner is the only bungie employee at 343, double check your info.

My mistake, word of mouth wasn't the most reliable source of information, but I could care less about fact checking on a comments section, especially when I'm replying to a 1 bubble comment :P

In fact, that proves my point, that it's not exactly difficult to imitate, as most FPSs are.
