343 Industries studio head Bonnie Ross sat down to talk about the original pitch for Halo 4, and the origins of Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
A missed opportunity
At the same time they were working on Halo 4 they were "recreating every single-player campaign and every multiplayer mode in the mainline Halo franchise" and probably also drawing the original plans for 5?!!! No wonder Why Master Chief Collection was such a mess! "plagued with issues at launch" says IGN... Which makes me think of some words of Phil Spencer talking recently about the acquisition of the new studios, something in the line of developing resources and tools... Maybe not so much for new franchises but rather not having these problems in the future? Maybe not JUST for new games?
Just when I couldnt imagine the xbox 2013 launch being any worse.
That would’ve pitted Killzone and Halo against each other in another holiday season
They should've did that
As beautiful as Halo 4 looked on the 360, the game particularity in split-screen would struggle (just like its older brother Halo:Reach).
It probably should have been. I still remember the outrage when it was announced it was going to have two discs.
Why da hell you didn't do that?!!! It's just outrageous the level of incompetence with Microsoft this gen... One day we'll know the whole picture... But each new thing is just baffling to the mind. And a lot of this morons are still there, uh...
